50 Real Effects of Measuring Intangibles Let K, N be the market’s beliefs regarding investments in tangibles and intangibles, respectively. Given these beliefs, the market must perceive the reported cash balance as z m = x1 − K − N − γ. As argued earlier, the market must also perceive the reported income as y m = x1 + ω. Thus, both z m and y m contain information about x1 and therefore about x2 . Given K, N the random vector (z m , y m , x2 ) is joint Normally distributed with, cov(z m , x2 ) = cov(x1 , x2 ) = ρ cov(y m , x2 ) = cov(x1 , x2 ) = ρ cov(z m , y m ) = σx2 var(y m ) = σx2 + σω2 var(z m ) = σx2 + σγ2 .

7) with respect to K yields, 2µαK α−1 N β + N (K) = 1. 10) Let us compare the firm’s investments in the expensing regime to those in the Utopian regime. 10) provides the following results. 1. The economic consequences of not measuring a firm’s investment in intangibles are: (i) The firm under-invests in both tangibles and intangibles. (ii) The mix of tangibles and intangibles is inefficient and biased toward a greater proportion of tangibles in the firm’s capital stock. (iii) The degree of under-investment is independent of the noise in accounting measurements and depends only on the technological parameters, α and β.

2) realism of this feature of intangible investments is apparent to any one who has engaged in research or human capital development. It is essential to the analysis, as will become apparent later. 42 Real Effects of Measuring Intangibles Since cash balances are measured perfectly and reported in virtually every accounting regime, I assume that the date 1 cash balance z, but not necessarily its components, is publicly known in each of the informational regimes to be discussed. At date 1, the primitives describing the firm’s operations are: K = the firm’s tangible assets, N = the firm’s productive intangible assets, N + γ = the total expenditure on intangibles, x1 = the true operating income of the firm in the first period.
