Disagreement and flexibility : a theory of optimal security issuance and capital structure by Arnoud W. A Boot( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
In this paper we introduce flexibility as an economic concept and apply it to the firm'ssecurity issuance decision and capital structure choice. Flexibility is the ability to makedecisions that one thinks are best even when others disagree. The firm's management valuesflexibility because it allows management to make decisions it believes are best forshareholders without being blocked by dissenters. The amount of flexibility management has atany point in time depends on how the firm is financed. Debt offers little flexibility relativeto equity. However, the flexibility offered by equity depends on the extent to whichshareholders are inclined to agree with management's strategic choices. Equity offers thegreatest flexibility when the propensity for shareholder agreement is the highest. It turnsout that the firm's stock price is also increasing in shareholders' propensity to agree withmanagement. Thus, the flexibility benefit of equity is high only when the sh!are price is high. The firm's optimal security-issuance choice trades off the flexibilitybenefit of equity against the now-familiar debt tax shield, and the firm's capital structure isthe consequence of a sequence of past security-issuance choices. The strongest implication ofthis theory of capital structure evolution is that optimal capital structure is essentiallydynamic, and depends on the firm's stock price, implying that firms issue equity when stockprices are high and debt when stock prices are low. The theory explains many stylized factsthat fly in the face of existing capital structure theories and also generates new testablepredictions. Moreover, the theory can rationalize the use of debt in the absence of taxes,agency costs or signaling considerations

The economic value of flexibility when there is disagreement by Arnoud W. A Boot( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
We develop an economic theory of "flexibility", which we interpret as the discretion orability to make a decision that others disagree with. We show that flexibility is essentiallyan option for the decisionmaker, and can be valued as such. The value of the flexibilityoption is decreasing in the extent to which the decisionmaker's future decision-relevantopinion is correlated with the opinions of others who may be able to impede the decision.We argue that flexibility drives economic decisions in a significant way. Theapplications we consider are: the entrepreneur's choice of flexibility in the initial mix offinancing raised, the use of flexibility to understand differences in security design and thefirm's security-issuance decision, the impact of flexibility on the use of collateral inlending, the role of flexibility in capital budgeting decisions, the effect of flexibilityconsiderations in the design of contracts in a principal-agent setting, the interpretation of"power" and conformity in organizations in the context of flexibility, and the choice betweenprivate an public ownership in the context of flexibility

Notes on Financial System Development and Political Intervention by Fenghua Song( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 16 libraries worldwide
The paper studies the impact of political intervention on a financial system that consists of banks and financial markets and develops over time. In this financial system, banks and markets exhibit three forms of interaction: they compete, they complement each other, and they co-evolve. Coevolution is generated by two new ingredients of financial system architecture relative to the existing theories: securitization and risk-sensitive bank capital. The authors show that securitization propagates banking advances to the financial market, permitting market evolution to be driven by bank evolution, and market advances are transmitted to banks through bank capital. Then they examine how politicians determine the nature of political intervention designed to expand credit availability. The authors find that political intervention in banking exhibits a U-shaped pattern, where it is most notable in the early stage of financial system development (through bank capital subsidy in exchange for state ownership of banks) and in the advanced stage (through direct lending regulation). Despite expanding credit access, political intervention results in an increase in financial system risk and does not contribute to financial system evolution. Numerous policy implications are drawn out
