Abstract

Central to the effectiveness of financial policies geared towards promoting real business investment is the interaction between corporations'financing and investment decisions. The objectives of this paper are twofold : 1) develop an integrated approach towards the problem of optimal corporate real investment and finance in the context of a financial model of a developing economy characterized by credit rationing, controlled banking sector and an organized equity market; and 2) apply the model to the nonfinancial corporate sector of the economy. The paper is organized as follows : Section I is the introduction; Section II describes the theoretical model of companies'optimal investment and financing behavior ( Tobin's Q approach ), but extended to incorporate some important tax and financial features of the economy; Section III discusses the estimation of the model, with annual data from 1963 to 1986; Section IV concludes with a brief discussion of some relevant policy implications and lessons.
