Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether long-term funds had a positive impact on investment in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. When there exists a possibility of a liquidity shortage, the firm’s investment decision tends to be conservative. Thus, to the extent that the long-term debt makes the liquidity shortage less likely outcome, long-tern loans can have a positive impact on investment. In the first part of this paper, we estimate Tobin’s Q type investment functions of Japanese firms for two different sample periods. In 1972-84, we find that the long-term loan ratio had an additional positive effect on investment. However, in 1985-96, we cannot find that a higher ratio of long-term loans increased the Japanese firm’s investment. (The rest omitted)
