We can thus de…ne the MoM estimators as the solution to the system: ∑n=1 xi (yi βo β1 xi ) = 0 i . ∑n=1 yi βo β1 xi = 0 i (2.14 &amp; 2.15) It goes without saying that the estimators obtained as solutions to the ˆ MM ˆ MM obtained by system (2.14 &amp; 2.15) are exactly the βo , β1 n o directly replacing the population objects µy , µx , var (x ) , cov (x , y ) in (4) with their sample counterparts. ˆ MM ˆ MM ...
