...1. Since Xt and Yt are two random walk series, regressing Yt on Xt using a simple linear regression should yield a insignificant coefficient of Xtand a very low R-squared reflecting very bad fit. But if the regression is carried out, it will be found that the coefficient is highly significant and the R-squared value is high. This is known as a spurious regression since it implies dependence although the variables are independent of one another. The problem will go away if the regression is run in first differences, or a lagged value of Y is included in the regression.
2. Probability models are models that become relevant when the outcome of interest is not continuous (such as wages per week or stock prices) but rather binary... Since Xt...
