Many earlier studies of the determinants of consumption and investment, some done decades ago, used only OLS, or if 2SLS was used, instruments were not necessarily tested for their strength. This raised the issue of how to compare the current study’s results with the earlier studies, some done decades ago, before modern econometric methods were available, particularly if a difference in results was found. Though our ﬁndings are based on what strong instrument variants of 2SLS showed, we also present weak instrument and OLS ﬁndings testing the same structural model, for comparison.
We then re-estimated them in weak instrument 2SLS (if the initial instrument tested was weak), then again in strong instrument 2SLS. This gave us 24 tests of the signiﬁcance of the crowd out variable in Keynesian models. Results of each were noted. Once this was done, these twenty-four tests were rerun adding a consumer borrowing variable (CB2) or a business borrowing variable (IB(À1)), giving us a total of 48 test results. After every test, the effects on the deﬁcit variable were noted. Many of these 48 tests were repeated replacing the one-variable deﬁcit with two separate deﬁcit variables: the government revenue variable and the government spending variable, to determine if crowd out effects were different for tax cut deﬁcits and spending deﬁcits.
