Investments and financial structure with imperfect financial markets: an intertemporal discrete-time framework
AbstractThis paper deals with the problem of simultaneity between the firm's investments and financial structure, in a context of dynamic optimization, characterised by two main assumptions: first of all, diverging incentives for managers and shareholders, secondly, financial markets imperfections generating a risk premium on the borrowed finance. A ''discrete-time'' framework has been introduced in order to better model the relevance of timing in the co-ordination process between financial and investment decisions, assumed to take place simultaneously. The simple model proposed here may provide some intuitive interpretation for a number of phenomena such as the propagation of financial shocks into the real economy and the countercyclical mark-ups.
