  • In Section 3.2.2, the reported values for the various computations are not consistent with the data shown in Table 3.1. The various errors follow from an error in the Real Investment column (Y) in Table 3.1. The following are the required corrections:
    In (3-7), 2.41882 should be 2.42007.
    In the expressions for b2 and b3 on page 32, -1.6351 should be -1.7170; 4.22255 should be 4.09829; -0.180169 should be -0.180663; 0.0108157 should be 0.01081404; -6.8780284 should be -6.885224.
    In (3-9), 0.00533 should be 0.005169.
    In (3-10), 0.1080157 should be 0.1081404 based on bYG=0.005169, bYT=-0.0061321, bTG=0.569964 and rGT2=0.919881.
    In the subsequent text, bYT=-1.7170/280=-0.0061321.
    Later, the slope on the time trend is -0.180663.
    On page 33, the final column of values should be 36.301, 288.691, 3612.90, 188.300, 82.8193.
    The solution for b should be (-6.26176, -0.161870, 0.0996027, 0.019722, -0.0110883). (Author, New York University)
