Abstract

In the linear instrumental variables model, we characterize fixed alternatives against which the test of overidentifying restrictions (OR) is inconsistent. When there is the notion of a "true parameter", we relate this inconsistency result to the literature on optimality properties of various versions of the test of OR.
