Capital Structure and Labour Demand: Investigations Using German Micro Data

Quantitative Macroeconomics Working Papers from Hamburg University, Department of Economics

Abstract: The paper analyses the interaction between capital structure and employment decisions of firms. For this purpose, a theoretical model is developed in which a firm determines employment along an optimal path taking into account financial considerations. The empirical analysis using West German micro data proves that a negative relationship exists between employment and the debt-asset ratio of the firm. We also demonstrate that as real wages (sales) increase, employment decreases (increases).
