Investigating the Link between Uncertainty and Investment - Microeconometric Evidence from Germany
AbstractWe analyse empirically the effect of uncertainty on the investment decisions of a sample of quoted German firms. The uncertainty measures are constructed by employing two procedures: the conventional formula of standard deviation, and the GARCH methodology. In the econometric estimates the investment rate is shown to depend negatively on a variable that results from the interaction between uncertainty and market concentration.
