Abstract

Since there is so far no estimator that allows to estimate a dynamic panel model that includes a spatial lag as well as other potential endogenous variables. This paper wants to determine if it is suitable to instrument the spatial lag variable (which is by de�finition endogenous/simultaneous) using the instruments proposed by system GMM, i.e. lagged spatial lag values. The Monte Carlo investigation highlights the possibility to estimate a dynamic spatial lag model using the extended GMM proposed by Arellano and Bover (1995) and Blundell and Bover (1998), especially when N and T are large.
