Abstract

Using a unique data set from the Tennessee Public Service Commission, we test the theory that large firms face lower costs of capital in financial markets and maintain advantages over smaller firms regarding the ownership of resources. The results suggest that this is indeed the case, and that demand uncertainty, as pointed out in previous studies, is also an important determination in the leasing and ownership of capital equipment in the motor carrier industry.
