会议主题：Inalienable Human Capital and Debt Choice
内容提要：Hart and Moore (1994) develop theoretical predictions on how inalienable human capital affects debt contracting. We examine, empirically, how firms address the increased threat of losing inalienable human capital by choosing between private and public debt. Exploiting the staggered rejection of the inevitable disclosure doctrine (IDD) across U.S. states as exogenous shocks that facilitate the outflow of key talent to rivals, we find that treatment firms significantly increase reliance on private debt financing. The effect is stronger among firms that rely more on key human capital, with more fragile fundamentals, and that face higher information asymmetry. Our overall findings indicate that, due to the inalienable nature of human capital, flexible renegotiation and timely monitoring are important benefits of private debt in reacting to the risk of losing human capital.
