SVAR Long & Short run restrictions

Postby brightcake » Sun Jul 23, 2017 7:53 am

So i'm currently doing my dissertation where i've decided to follow the methodology of this paper: ... 3_05.n.pdf. They essentially use US data to build a SVAR which as four shocks: two short and two long-run shocks. I'm currently trying to follow this methodology but apply the analysis to Norway. However, i've run into a few problems.

1)I haven't been able to estimate both short-run and long-run shocks in either stata or Eviews. I understand that Matlab would be a more ideal package to use, however, I don't feel like I have the required knowledge to use it.
2)I'm not entirely sure I understand the paper's restrictions on both the short and long-run matrices of the SVAR. I've tried to estimate the short run shocks by themselves but my impulse response functions look really wrong.
3)The paper estimates a few of the SVAR equations using 2SLS and I honestly have no idea how to implement this in a SVAR framework.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, i've been stuck on this issue for a few weeks and my supervisor is unavailable.

EViews 10 allows both SR and LR restrictions.
