I would like to know if I am making a mistake when interpreting the endogeneity problem of the spatial lag model. Suppose you have
where WY is the spatial lag of the dependent variable and e is white noise. Obviously, there is a problem of endogeneity since WY introduces the error term of region j, with j=/=i. (ej) for the region i. My question is if the 2SLS is a good estimator for this equation.
Operatively, I would think that further spatial lags of Y would be a good instrument (as well as spatial lags of X).
