This paper is an analysis of how a firm behaves in the face of uncertainty about demand and cost conditions and a known constraint on the rate of return it is allowed to earn. Under these conditions it is improbable that regulation could force a monopoly to make competitive investment and output by: mn7i97t AST>1PLEMODELOFFIRMBEHAVIORUNDER REGULATIONAITOUNCERTAINTY J February   Abstract.

The paper examines the risk behavior of a competitive firm under price uncertainty. In the model developed in the paper we have departed from the thought-provoking approach of Greenwald and Stiglitz (a), which implies solely risk averse behavior of firms due to its restrictive assumptions about firm's by: 9.

2) Uncertainty and its sources: Firm’s perspective Before we start to deal with the theory of firm and build our model let’s clarify the term uncertainty, attitude to risk and point out on possible sources of risk, because the understanding of these issues is often ambiguous for different streams of by: 9.

I present a generalized dynamic model of firm behavior under rate of return regulation. The modeled firm has access to multiple types of capital which are substitutes (imperfect or perfect) in.

pletely rules out risk averse behavior, and so many elementary facts of economic life seem to indicate a prevalence of risk aver-sion. The present paper is intended as a sys-tematic study of the theory of the competi-tive firm under price uncertainty and risk aversion.

uncertainty on firm investment differs across industries. In this paper, I use a unique empirical setting to construct a time-varying measure of uncertainty that is exogenous to economic conditions and firm behavior.

This allows me to provide new empirical evidence on the uncertainty-investment link and its interaction with competition.

Sharkey. This behavior has consequences for what are ordinarily interpreted as market prices of risk, but big parts of which should actually be interpreted as market prices of model uncertainty.

The chapters discuss ways of calibrating agents' fears of model misspecification in Cited by: 4. This paper examines the interplay between the real and financial decisions of the competitive firm under output price uncertainty.

The firm faces additional sources of uncertainty that are aggregated into a background risk. We show that the firm always chooses its optimal debt–equity ratio to minimize the weighted average cost of capital, irrespective of the risk Cited by: 7.

Optimal Regulation addresses the central issue of regulatory economics - how to regulate firms in a way that induces them to produce and price "optimally." It synthesizes the major findings of an extensive theoretical literature on what constitutes optimality in various situations and which regulatory mechanisms can be used to achieve by:.

I create a simple model in which firms choose to either avoid taxes aggressively or conservatively, based on enforcement of laws and uncertainty about outcomes of the legal process.

This theory shows under which conditions firms will avoid conservatively by using debt tax shields and when they will use more aggressive strategies.a. a firm is owned and operated by the same person.

b. managers make decisions that are not in the best interest of owners. c. a firm compensates managers based on the profitability of the firm. d. All of these answers are correct.normative rules for decision-making under risk and uncertainty are not followed [1, 2].

For instance people make decisions by following well-known paths and by following well established and built in norms, see e.g. [3] and the discussion concerning Basic Underlying Assumptions. We have, in the recent past, seen an increasing interest in the.
