Managers, Debt and Industry Equilibrium

FMG Discussion Papers from Financial Markets Group

Abstract: This paper reconsiders the strategic effect of debt under the assumption that quantity choices are made by managers whose objective is t avoid bankruptcy. The basic result is that quantity choices, which are strategic substitutes under profit maximization, may turn into strategic complements under reasonable assumptions on the profit function. The value a delegation, optimal wage contracts, and empirical implications are discussed.
