Abstract
The crossentropy approach is extended to the estimation of cointegrated equations. The entropy estimators for an appropriately constructed moment form, are asymptotically equivalent to Fully Modi�ed estimators since they converge to these estimates su¢ ciently quickly. The performance of the entropy estimators are examined by using some Monte Carlo trials, and in an applied example for the estimation of a production function for South African agriculture.
