19) 35 In order to obtain insights into how accounting imprecision affects sustainable investment levels, it is necessary to relate the coefficients a and b of the linear investment schedule k(θ) = a + bθ to the imprecision parameter σ 2 . It is convenient to do this in a backdoor way by characterizing the values of β, a, and σ 2 in terms of b. 19), 1 b = c−2α and a = α1 b. 18), 2 2 2 2aγβ we determine that α2 = γβb and α1 = aγβ b − b . Inserting the value 2 of α2 into the equation for b yields bc − 2γβ = 1, or equivalently, β= bc − 1 .

2. When the profitability of investment θ is known to the firm’s manager but unknown to the capital market, perfect measurement of investment induces the firm to over-invest relative to first best levels. The firm’s equilibrium investment is characterized by the 2 In settings such as we are studying, there is usually also a degenerate equilibrium where the capital market simply uses the prior mean of θ to evaluate the firm’s investment and the firm responds by choosing the same level of investment for every value of θ.

I have shown that when the profitability parameter θ is publicly known, imprecise measurements of investment induce the firm to under-invest, and when θ is privately known only to the firm’s manager perfect measurements of the firm’s investment induce the firm to over-invest. These results suggest that perhaps some ignorance of θ in the capital market and some imprecision in the measurement of investment may actually improve the equilibrium and sustain investment levels that are closer to first best.
