Abstract:

We document countercyclical corporate saving behavior. We then develop a quantitative general equilibrium model to explain the pattern and study its implications for business cycles. In the model, a persistent negative productivity shock signals low future productivity. In the presence of financial frictions, firms divert resources from capital to cash in order to preserve financial flexibility. Lower capital investment translates into lower collateral value and income in future, which further strengthens firms' precautionary saving motive and shifts resources away from capital. Corporate saving, therefore, propagates aggregate shocks, in contrast to the common view of its role in absorbing adverse shocks as a liquidity cushion. In particular, corporate saving increases the decline in output during recessions and raises output volatility over the business cycle.
