By Paul van Loon

This quantity is the ultimate results of the learn venture ''Micro progress model", that used to be backed via the critical learn Pool of Tilburg collage, the Netherlands. except the college Council for this significant monetary help, I owe Prof. Dr. Fiet Verheyen greatly for a way within which he brought me into clinical circles and for a way during which he supervised and encouraged my paintings. Dr. Jan de Jong and Peter Janssen C. E. , Technical college of Eindhoven, piloted me correctly in the course of the mathe­ matics of optimum keep an eye on concept and got rid of a few technical boundaries. Their aid used to be essential for the luck of this venture. i might additionally wish to point out the type help of Prof. Dr. Jack Kleijnen, who gave me many precious tricks on the right way to current the result of this undertaking. during this approach i used to be capable of touch with numerous resear­ chers in and out the Netherlands. such a lot thankful i'm to Prof. Dr. Charles Tapiero, Jerusalem collage, who commented on vital elements of this ebook in a optimistic method and who prompt many matters for extra study. additionally Mr. Geert­ Jan vsn Schijndel, Tilburg college, will be pointed out the following, simply because he heavily learn the paintings and that i favored his comments and corrections greatly. Many collea­ gues have contributed to the result of this examine undertaking in a right away or oblique method. specially I may still prefer to point out my contacts with Prof. Dr.

The relevant values are the financing costs in the case of (from the top downward) debt financing at a rate h, pure debt financing and: pure self-financing. Which of both trajectories is feasible, depends on whether the discount rate i exceeds or is smaller than the interest rate on debt money, r.

Summary. In this chaper we have presented a dynamic model of the firm. The firm operates on an imperfect capital market. It finances its expansion by debt and/or retained earnings but it does not issue new shares. The availability of debt money depends on the amount 52 of equity. Marginal returns to scale are decreasing. Production is described by means of activity analysis. The financial relations in the model are based upon well known financial records. The government influences the policy of the firm through the corporation profit tax rate and through investment grants.
