The enterprise surroundings, fairly after the ongoing oil crises of the seventies, should be characterised as evolving quickly in complicated and infrequently unpre­ dictable methods. things like excessive curiosity and inflation premiums, fluctuating ex­ swap premiums, unstable commodity markets, and extending political turmoil have ended in a scenario within which specific attention of environmental dynamics is turning into even more very important for profitable company making plans than used to be real long ago. businesses are discovering that it truly is not attainable to behavior "busi­ ness as traditional" below those altering situations. quite, choice makers are having to be extra cognizant of the numerous assets of uncertainty which can have critical affects at the persisted prosperity of the company, in addition to of activities that may be taken in order that the corporate can thrive even with those larger uncertainties. companies have answered to those demanding situations through giving extra thorough con­ sideration to strategic concerns. while some time past the regular development of mar­ kets and expertise was once taken without any consideration, the uncertainties linked to elevated around the world festival, in addition to with different exogenous components, have vii viii creation compelled businesses to imagine extra approximately flexibility. This comprises not just how most sensible to take advantage of ecocnomic present suggestions, but in addition the way to place themselves at the moment with a view to reply competently to threats and possibilities as they come up sooner or later. regrettably, during this redirection of outlook, the fmance career has no longer saved pace.

Improved tax deductibility of losses or expenditures for risky investments only 42 DIETER SCHNEIDER The effects on risk-taking due to a change from no (or partial) loss-offset to partial (or full) loss-offset have been well known since Domar and Musgrave [4] . The effect of an improved deductibility of expenditures is shown by the following case: An investor in West Germany must take into account that the deductibility of interest payments is partially restricted; apart from the personal or corporate income tax there is the so-called Gewerbeertragsteuer, which corresponds to some extent to a trade tax on income.

Additionally, it is argued that the portfolio models hitherto used for analyzing the interrelations between taxation and risk-taking considerably overrate the investor's ability to decide according to the expected utility theorem (or its simplifications, such as the mean-variance rule). 38 THE INFLUENCE OF TAX INCENTIVES 39 TAX INCENTIVES AND RISK-TAKING Assumptions and Definitions The main results of this paper will be derived under the assumption that tax incentives lead to nonmarginal income variations.

The accelerated depreciation leads to a higher riskless income, but to a smaller percentage of income diminution and a smaller relative risk premium of the risky investment. If the percentage of income diminution and the relative risk premium of the risky investment move in the same direction as in the example given above, the effect of a variation of the tax conditions on risk-taking cannot be predicted for any form of relative risk aversion, neither for constant nor decreasing nor increasing relative risk aversion: A smaller percentage of income diminution implies a smaller risk.
