The Canadian corporate investment gap

Chris D'Souza, Timothy Grieder, Daniel Hyun and Jonathan Witmer ()

No 2020-19, Staff Analytical Notes from Bank of Canada

Abstract: Business investment has been lower than expected in Canada and abroad since the financial crisis of 2007–09. This corporate investment gap is mirrored in firms’ other financing decisions, as they have increased cash holdings and dividend payments and decreased issuance of debt and equity.
