Miller's Equilibrium and Uncertainty

  • Jones, C.
Registered author(s):

    This paper highlights the arbitrage by firms in Miller's (1977) equilibrium when consumers face (short) selling constraints to restrict tax arbitrage. In this competitive equilibrium firms create risky tax-preferred securities that divide investors into strict tax clienteles; any changes in debt-equity ratios by individual firms have no real effects on consumers because other firms undo them.
