Factor Prices, Employment and Investment in U.K. and West German Manufacturing
This paper investigates the empirical performance of a system of investment and employment equations for the U.K. and West German manufacturing sectors. The distinguishing feature of the model is the assumption that firms face adjustment costs in changing the stock of capital and labor and that these costs are interrelated. That makes the employment and investment decisions of the firm interdependent, with employment being determined by investment and vice versa. The empirical implementation of the model for both countries is satisfactory and outperforms a rival model in which employment and investment decisions are made separately.
