This paper proposes a bivariate marginal likelihood specification of spatial econometrics models that simplifies the derivation of the log-likelihood and leads to a closed form expression for the estimation of the parameters. With respect to the more traditional specifications of spatial autoregressive models, our method avoids the arbitrariness of the specification of a weight matrix, presents analytical and computational advantages and provides interesting interpretative insights.
