Till the Seventies, there has been a consensus in utilized macroeconometrics, either in regards to the theoretical beginning and the empirical specification of macroeconometric modelling, generally called the Cowles fee technique. this is often not the case: the Cowles fee technique broke down within the Nineteen Seventies, changed by means of 3 well known competing tools of empirical examine: the LSE (London institution of Economics) method, the VAR process, and the intertemporal optimization/Real enterprise Cycle technique.

There are three types of explanatory variables used, namely economic, financial and political variables. More than two-thirds of the omitted explanatory variables and proxy variables used are economic and financial in nature. In terms of the preferred country risk model, logit followed by probit and discriminant are the most popular models. While logit, probit and Tobit models are used 40 times in total, the ML estimation method is used only 35 times. Moreover, while linear and log – linear models are used only seven times in total, OLS is used 16 times.

Ignoring dynamic factors in the model specification will mean that differences between short- and long-run effects of shocks in the system will not be measured adequately.
