# Arch model

Dear friends,

I want to estimate a model where I have a mean equation of:

Investment = α + βY +µR +ϴD+ ϵ

Where alpha is an intercept, Y is production, R is the interest rate and D is a dummy variable for risk?

I do not know if it is possible/allowed to model the volatility of investment in this way?

And I do not know what my variance equation will be. Is it just:

Vt= α + Rt-1(squared)

Where Rt-1(squared) is my residuals from the mean equation in t-1 squared?

I will be very greatful for all insight:)
