Negative coefficient on the error correction term in an ECM

Why should $\beta_2$ in the error correction model, $(Y_t – Y_{t−1}) = \beta_0 + \beta_1(X_{t−1} – X_{t−2}) + \beta_2(Y_{t−1} + (–\beta_3)X_{t−1}) + u_t$, be negative? I cannot locate any clear ...

What is the difference between ECM and VECM?

From what I understood, ECM is for two variables and apply OLS to estimate EC term and VECM is for multi-variables (vector form) and apply VAR to estimate EC term. But as I read other papers, I think ...

Interpretation of intercept term in ECM

Suppose two $I(1)$ series $x_t, y_t$ are cointegrated. Therefore $\mu_t$ in following equation is stationary: \begin{align} y_t = \beta_0 + \beta_1x_t + \mu_t \tag{1} \end{align} Now consider the ECM ...
