Abstract

We point out that the ideas underlying some test procedures recently proposed for testing post-model-selection (and for some other test problems) in the econometrics literature have been around for quite some time in the statistics literature. We also sharpen some of these results in the statistics literature and show that some of the proposals in the econometrics literature lead to tests that do not have the claimed size properties.
