> Betreff: [R] Granger Causality in a VAR Model
> Dear Community,
> I am new to R and have a question concerning the causality () 
> test in the vars package. I need to test whether, say, the 
> variable y Granger causes the variable x, given z as a 
> control variable.
> I estimated the VAR model as follows: >model<-VAR(cbind(x,y,z),p=2)
> Then I did the following: >causality(model, cause="y"). I 
> thing this tests the Granger causality of y on the vector 
> (x,z), though. How can I implement the test for y causing x 
> controlled for z? Thus, the F-test comparing the two models 
> M1:x~lagged(x)+lagged(z) and M2:x~lagged(x)+lagged(y)+lagged(z)?
> Thank you in advance.
