Let us consider Situation 1. Let us assume that $\rho$ is observed. If it does not work when $\rho$ is observed, there is no reason why it (using a proxy of $\rho$ as instrument) should work when $\rho$ is not observed. $\rho$ is endogenous so we can't just include it as a regressor in an equation. Thus, let us consider IV estimation. Obvious instruments for ...

I think this is already answered in the paper itself and in addition I think this is due to the way how they define 'simultaneous equations' topics. First as authors of that paper opine: This presumably reflects declining use of an orthodox multi-equation framework, especially in macroeconomics. The reduced coverage of Simultaneous equations has made space ...

Let's start by writing down the profit functions: $$ \pi_1 = p_1 q_1 - c_1 q_1 = (p_1 - c_1) q_1 = (p_1 - c_1)(a_1 + b_{11} p_1+b_{12} p_2) $$ and similarlily: $$ \pi_2 = (p_2 - c_2)(a_2 + b_{21} p_1 +b_{22} p_2) $$ In a simultaneous equilibrium, both firms simultaneously maximize their profits taking the strategies of the players as given. Doing this will ...
