At first sight one would think that this is a rather precise statement, but unfortunately it is not for two reasons. The first is that there is no discussion of the observation frequency for which this model should hold. Indeed, as Granger (1999) also indicates, if this model held for monthly data, it by definition would not hold for quarterly data, as temporal aggregation entails that the model requires additional explanatory variables. Additionally, the key aspect of the theory is that β 2 = 1, which in time series jargon is defined as saying that yt has a unit root.

Additionally, the key aspect of the theory is that β 2 = 1, which in time series jargon is defined as saying that yt has a unit root. As the last twenty years of theoretical and empirical econometric research have shown, statistically testing whether β 2 = 1 is notoriously difficult (and, some say, even impossible).
However, in the same area one has to deal with concepts as “emerging markets” or “AAArated firms,” and these are all just defined from the outset. In marketing it is pretty obvious what dollar sales are, but how should one measure the price? Is the relevant price the price with (the shelf price) or without price promotions?
