This paper reports on the Wald test for a1=a2=0 in the regression model where κ is estimated using nonlinear least squares. As this situation is not standard we provide critical values for further use. An illustration to quarterly GDP in the Netherlands is given. A power study shows that choosing inappropriate starting values for κ leads to a quick loss of power.
