Just read the US Economics Analyst, the weekly publication by Goldman about the US. Most readers would agree w me it's one of the best market research out there, or at least agree that any European research, or that Deutsche's Lavorna's mumbles about the US, are much worse.
But this week piece, by some fellow called Dawsey, deserves mentioning. He estimates a VAR to measure the impact of the mortgage rate hike over the economy, and just assumes away the endogeneity problem.
I'm sure it would make Pastore proud. But I ask my bro X to put it on the list. Or maybe make a list of the "10 more endogenous economist" including all the schmucks who think endogeneity is not a big problem, that in the end is not quantitatively important and that measuring exercises are useful even when they are obviously flawed.
