44 3 Fixed Proportions and Contractual Alternatives positive probability of borrower default will yield such a result if funds are raised by debt flotation. Also, Williamson (1971) argued that difficulties of monitoring the performance of large integrated firms may result in higher returns being required by investors if funds are raised in the equity market. Therefore, it is entirely plausible that vertical integration impedes entry by increasing the capital requirements of potential entrants. Whether or not the degree of vertical integration exhibited by the existing members of an industry actually does exert a positive effect on the perunit capital costs of new entrants would appear to be an empirical question that is amenable to investigation, especially since the appearance of Maddigan's (1981) operational measure of the degree of vertical integration.

13) would have to exceed dnjdz in absolute value. In other words, the expected gain from reducing the probability of entry would have to exceed the loss in current period profits for all values of z. Finally, in the event that vertical integration has no effect on the probability of entry being forestalled in the future period, we set dpldz = 0 in the above conditions. Then, it is easily shown that the three cases described above of zero, partial, or complete vertical integration will emerge depending upon the values of άττχΐάζ over the different values of z.
