Capital markets constrain industry scale
The paper considers an industry featuring agency problems between outside investors and entrepreneurs who manage the firms comprising the industry. In a range of circumstances, industry scale is independent of product market structure, and is determined solely by the amount of equity financing contributed by the entrepreneurs, and by the capital market response to possible managerial malfeasance. Thus, in the face of capital market constraints, a change in productmarket concentration has no effect on market performance unless it occasions a change in the amount of inside equity financing.
