Entrepreneurship and Endogenous Volatility
In this paper we document the relationship between idiosyncratic risk and non productive expenditures at the rm level from the Kauman Firm Survey. We then propose a model of entrepreneurial activity subject to nancial constraints where rms engage in borrowing to nance capital and wages, but also non productive expenses such as brand development, R&D, management consulting, marketing, etc. We allow for the non productive expenditures to aect the spread of the distribution from which shocks are drawn.
