Uniform Convergence Rates for Kernel Estimation with Dependent Data
"This paper presents a set of rate of uniform consistency results for kernel estimators of density functions and regressions functions. We generalize the existing literature by allowing for stationary strong mixing multivariate data with infinite support, and kernels with unbounded support, and general bandwidth sequences. These results are useful for semiparametric estimation based on a first stage nonparametric estimator."

Challenges for Econometric Model Selection
"Standard econometric model selection methods are based on four fundamental errors in approach: parametric vision, the assumption of a true DGP, evaluation based on fit, and ignoring the impact of model uncertainty on inference. Instead, econometric model selection methods should be based on a semiparametric vision, models should be viewed as approximations, models should be evaluated based on their purpose, and model uncertainty should be incorporated into inference methods. These problems have been examined individually, but not jointly, and my view is that future research into econometric model selection should attempt to address all four issues. "

The Likelihood Ratio Test Under Nonstandard Conditions
I very much like the approach of treating the likelihood ratio as an empirical process; why haven't I seen it before? (Also, the state-of-the-art in simulating Gaussian processes must be much better now than what Hansen was doing in '92, which would make this even more practical.)
