Abstract

In this paper an econometric model for corporate planning analysis is discussed and its operation is demonstrated by examples. The thrust of this effort has not been towards developing a new body of theory or detailed econometric examination of standard relationships in the theory. The main thrust has been towards the development of a capability for analyzing firm behavior utilizing economics in a straightforward fashion. The structure and econometrics simply allow the theory to be examined quantitatively. In a sense, this has been the theme of this development; that is, for present day corporate planning modeling, the state of applied economics and the availability of planning technology is such that comprehensive and informative models can be constructed on simple economic theory.
