By analogy with the notion of Mahalanobis distance, 9 we may think of the 28L8 (and later 38L8) estimator as a minimum distance like estimator. The conditions in Eq.
B means that a converges in probability to b. We have, thus, established Theorem 1. 5) and Conventions 1 through 3. 49) where Remark 10. It is seen from Eq. 49) that the "reason" OLS is inconsistent as an estimator of the structural parameters b. 50) which results from the fact that a subset of the explanatory (right hand) variables in the ith structural equation, viz. the Y; , are correlated with the structural error term Ui . If, somehow, we could eliminate or overcome this dependence we could utilize least squares procedures to obtain (at least) consistent estimators.
93) we have defined Q in a slightly different manner than we did in previous sections: precisely, earlier we had defined Q; ,= R-1X'Zi and Q = diag(Q1,Q2, . , Qm). In this c:ontex (of L~I-derived 2SLS and 3SLS derived estimators) it is much more convenient to define Q = R- 1 X' Z so that the Qi of previous sections are simply the submatrices of Q corresponding to the ith equation of the system. For the notation to be totally consistent we should have defined in the earlier sections Q* = diag(Ch, Q2,'·" Qm) .
