    xtabond2 suppressing the constant

    Hi all, When using the difference GMM estimator, the constant is differenced out by way of the first-difference transformation. So using the option "noconstant" is moot. But what is the interpretation of the constant in System GMM? The system GMM uses the original levels equation and the...
