For my thesis I was looking for some help due to the facts of my little knowledge of econometrics. I appreciate any help whether its directly dealing with my question or literature advice.
Basically I would construct the Solow Model with a CES production function including 2 more variables as mentioned human capital and another restricting variable representing a scarce resource such as oil. I would search for Data then for the needed variables and estimate the sigma.
My question here is the technical part on how to actually estimate that parameter given the data. What kind of methods are there to get an approximate value and what kind of programs would be potentially useful to get the solutions?
