    se(B)                (5.0)        (0.002)             R2 = 0.92

where Inft is the inflation rate in a given year Xt is the growth in money supply in the same year

a.  Suppose this model represents a Koyck lag structure.  Find the 1st, 5th, and 10th lag coefficients on Xt.

b. If this was a forecasting model, exlpain what  AR(3) and MA(4) models would look like (separate not ARMA)
