The Erickson-Whited high-order moment estimators have been superceded by high-order cumulant estimators.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. Limited Matlab code is available now. Fully-functional Matlab and Stata code will be coming soon!

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
