I know I am supposed to start from

$N^{1/2}[N^{-1}\sum x_{i}u_{i}]$

Then by central limit theorem that that it is asymptotically

$ N(E(x_{i}u_{i}),var(x_{i}u_{i})) $

and $E(x_{i}u_{i})=0$

so $ N(0,var(x_{i}u_{i})) $

from there I cant see how I get to the correct result which is supposed to be


  • $\begingroup$ it looks like you have OLS with heteroskedastic error term so check out the well known paper by Halbert White whose title currently escapes me. I'll see if I can find the name of it. $\endgroup$ – mlofton Dec 20 '18 at 16:25
