8 Iain Begg and Brian Henry The second development relates to the issue of identifying structural/behaviourial relationships from econometric analysis. Here, VAR models originally seemed to offer an 'a-theoretic' way of side-stepping the problems relating to identification issues raised in the Cowles Commission simultaneous equation approach (taken as the template for traditional structural models). But since then this debate has moved on, and attention has recently shifted to using identification conditions with more economic content.

The model treats member states as distinct economic entities (or in the case of Italy and Germany each as two regions of the same economy) interacting with one another; but at the same time it is one model giving the benefits of common classifications, definitions and methodology, and with equation estimates and results capable of being aggregated at the European level. g. Jorgenson's Dynamic GEM (Jorgenson and Wilcoxen, 1992). It is also in a new generation of models, looking to the problems of the next 20 to 30 years, and taking advantage of the increasing power of desktop computing and new software for portability and presentation.

The approach is well illustrated in the estimation of a wage equation for some 20 UK industrial sectors by Lee and Pesaran (1993); in E3ME, the corresponding equation is estimated for 30 industries and 14 regions.
