摘要:
Many contributions have analyzed the implications for aggregate productivity of financial frictions, emphasizing their role as source of misallocation of resources in the economy. Using firm-level panel data, we analyze whether the firm’s ability to have access to external finance directly contributes to shape its productivity pattern. This allows us to control for the extensive heterogeneity across firms in their access to external funds and in their productivity levels. We slightly adjust the Olley-Pakes’ method for measuring firm’s productivity by allowing the latter to depend also on the extent of the financing constraints. In the subsequent productivity equation we also control for lagged productivity consistently with the Olley-Pakes' assumption of a first-order Markov process for productivity. We show that financing constraints negatively affect firm’s TFP in almost all sectors. A more pronounced effect of financing constraints on TFP is recorded during the Great Recession. Moreover, the higher is the firm’s reliance on intangible assets, the higher is the sensitivity of productivity to financing restrictions. Finally, we also show that when financing constraints are more severe the firm’s “distance” from the technology frontier exerts a weaker pull for the firm’s TFP growth.
