Multicollinearity and maximum entropy estimators

  title={Multicollinearity and maximum entropy estimators},
  author={Quirino Paris},
Multicollinearity hampers empirical econometrics. The remedies proposed to date suffer from pitfalls of their own. The ridge estimator is not generally accepted as a vital alternative to the ordinary least−squares (OLS) estimator because it depends upon unknown parameters. The generalized maximum entropy estimator depends upon subjective exogenous information. This paper presents a novel maximum entropy estimator that does not depend upon any additional information. Monte Carlo experiments show… CONTINUE READING
