G (X ) and Consider now the recently stated ZCMA: E [U jX ] = 0 given model Y = g (X ) + U . The calligraphic di¤erence between U and U is not by chance and we also di¤erentiated between the function g and G .

G (X ) and Consider now the recently stated ZCMA: E [U jX ] = 0 given model Y = g (X ) + U . The calligraphic di¤erence between U and U is not by chance and we also di¤erentiated between the function g and G . We next understand better why E [U jX ] = 0 holds by de…nition while E [U jX ] = 0 holds by assumption. We procede in three steps. Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 12 / 93 Identi…cation: Food for Thought II - step 1 We …rst restate the models for Y : Y Y Melissa Tartari (Yale) = g (X ) + U , E [U ] = 0 = G (X ) + U , E [ U jX ] = 0 Econometrics (2) (3) 13 / 93 Identi…cation: Food for Thought II - step 2 Take (2) and add and subtract G (X ) on the RHS: Y = G (X ) + (U + g (X ) Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics G (X )) 14 / 93 Identi…cation: Food for Thought II - step 2 Take (2) and add and subtract G (X ) on the RHS: Y = G (X ) + (U + g (X ) G (X )) From (3) we see that the term in brackets must equal U ; then it should be that E [U + g (X ) G (X ) jX ] = 0 always...
