Abstract

Ce modèle étudie les effets joints de l'irréversibilité et des coûts de faillite sur la décision d'investissement. Les coûts de faillite supportés par le prêteur accentuent son conflit d'intérêt avec l'emprunteur: il est principalement concerné par la partie basse de la distribution du risque, alors que l'emprunteur est concerné par la partie restante. On établit l'existence d'un optimum du second ordre, où l'investissement dépend non seulement de la profitabilité et de l'espérance de la demande mais aussi de la richesse ou des fonds propres de l'entreprise. Le taux d'utilisation des capacités de production optimal diminue en présence de coûts de faillite. Le coût du capital est alors plus élevé puisqu'il inclue les coûts de faillite.
