Here is a link to the SLIDES for the talk on identification that I gave at the 2014 SFS Cavalcade. The folks at Georgetown recorded it, and when I get a link, I'll post that too.

Starting in September 2014, I will be co-editing the Journal of Financial Economics.

The Erickson-Whited high-order moment estimators have been superceded by high-order cumulant estimators. They are asymptotically equivalent to the moment estimators but they have closed form solutions. You can read about them here. We have a Stata module that can implement these estimators. It can be found here.

It looks like I have been in the business of writing surveys lately. Ilya Strebulaev and I have a tutorial on dynamic corporate finance: Dynamic Models and Structural Estimation in Corporate Finance. Michael Roberts and I have a survey of Endogeneity in Empirical Corporate Finance
