Abstract

This paper shows that fewer firms enter after a contractionary liquidity shock and that firm entry reacts quicker to liquidity than the economic activity indicator. The results are obtained by using Estonian data for the period 1995M1�2006M7. Various structural VAR and VECM models are exploited to identify the liquidity shock.
