Sample text

The project generates cash flows at date t = 1 and date t = 2. Cash flow at date t = 1 is certain, denoted y1. Cash flow at date t = 2 is uncertain. There is a “good” cash-flow state and a “bad” cash-flow state, denoted Gy2 and By2 respectively, where Gy2 > By2. The true probabilities of the time t = 2 states are T pG and T pB , respectively, where of course T pG + T pB = 1. Subscript “T” denotes “True” probability. The True probability distribution can be viewed as the actual probability distribution governing assets in the firm’s industry (alternatively, it is the subjective probability distribution that all parties would agree to if no one was affected by the cognitive bias of optimism).

In this case, access to free cash flow is harmful. Forcing the optimistic manager to the capital market might not prevent all bad investments, but it will prevent those where EM(r) − i − CM(E) ≤ 0. Without free cash flow, the misperceived cost of external financing actually prevents some value destruction by the optimistic managers. E. 8 Recall that CM(E) is the additional cost of external financing perceived by the optimistic manager. While this term is capable of both deterring bad overinvestment and causing value destructive underinvestment, it is clear that managers—none of whom believe they undertake value destroying overinvestment (see Assumption 2)—will seek to reduce their reliance on external funds.

A Simple Model This section describes the simple three date-two period model. To explore managerial optimism’s explanatory power, it is important to isolate its effects from the influence of assumptions made by the two predominant approaches to corporate finance: the asymmetric information approach and the empire-building/rational agency cost approach. , Myers and Majluf 1984) assume that managers have information that the capital market does not have. Empire-building/rational agency cost theories (for example, Hart 1993 and Jensen 1986) assume that it is impossible (or at least very costly) to write contracts that fully control managerial incentives.
