[Limdep Nlogit List] WTp estimation

Hello Professor Greene:
I am sure you get swamped with econometric questions, but
I have looked through your textbook and have this particular question about
estimating a simultaneous equation system.
With an endogenous regressor, in general an IV variable is needed, which
as you know searching for an appropriate one can prove challenging.
I have been under the impression that in the case of an endogenous regressor, the
common alternative has been to use the lagged value of the endogenous regressor,
since in general it is strongly correlated with the endogenous regresso but is less likely to be correlated with the other endogenous regressor. I have thought this was a relatively uncontroversial assumption.
However, I suppose the lagged value of the endogenous regressor can be viewed as an
IV variable, but I have not come across papers where the standard IV tests have been
applied to the use of a lagged endogenous variable as a particular IV variable. My question, are these tests really needed when a lagged endogenous variable has been used as instrument? If no, why? If it is, Is it a common practice? Finally is there
a handy reference for this practice?
Thanks in advance.
