On the other hand, one might argue that investment decisions depend more directly on business prospects. This suggests that we employ variables such as, for example, the leading indicators for estimating firms’ expected return. 33 34 35 See Greenwald and Stiglitz (1986). The debt-asset ratio and interest coverage ratio may be considered as important variables in Minsky type models. Friedman and Kuttner (1992) have already employed interest rate spreads as measures for financial fragility. There, however, other proxies for financial risk are left aside.

All other variables are used as ratios over capital stock and then detrended by a segmented trend. Therefore, Dev stands for deviation. Data are from Citibase (1989). As said above, the interest rate spread is measured by the difference between the six months commercial paper rate and the six months Treasury bill rate (Citibase Data 1989), called sprdDev. 38 36 37 38 We want to point out here that Keynes, for example, never thought of a variable solely reflecting the financial evaluation of the firm, as being the most important determinant of investment.

K˙ t = gt Kt 0 = ϕ(gt )Kt − RPt − E˙ pt whereby r is the rate of return on capital; ϕ = costs of investment; Ep = equity; RP = retained profit. The explicit extension to a model of a monopolistic firm, still without credit, Xt (with Xt output and Kt capital stock) reads with Et , effort, and, using the ratio K t Vmax = Et ,gt ,stf . ∞ 0 [{p(Et ) − c} Et − ϕ(gt )] Kt e−ρt dt K = gt K t ; . 12) d = ϕ(gt ) − [{p(Et ) − c} Et − idt ] stf − gt dt ; where c is the production cost; dt the debt-capital stock ratio (constant); and ρ the discount rate.
