The long-run real effects of banking crises: Firm-level investment dynamics and the role of wage rigidity

Carlo Wix ()

No 189, SAFE Working Paper Series from Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE

Abstract: This paper studies the long-run effects of credit market disruptions on real firm outcomes and how these effects depend on nominal wage rigidities at the firm level. I trace out the long-run investment and growth trajectories of firms which are more adversely affected by a transitory shock to aggregate credit supply. Affected firms exhibit a temporary investment gap for two years following the shock, resulting in a persistent accumulated growth gap. I show that affected firms with a higher degree of wage rigidity exhibit a steeper drop in investment and grow more slowly than affected firms with more flexible wages.
