This clearly means that Capital of today can be estimated right now but what is investment right now cannot be answered (Abel , 1979 . However we can certainly measure the investment for a month and year as quantity of a flow always depends on the period in consideration

We can calculate the investment flow in a period as the difference between the capital stock at the end of the period and the capital stock at the beginning of the period . Thus , the investment flow at time period t can be defined as

It Kt – Kt-1

Where Kt is the stock of capital at the end of period t and Kt-1 is the stock of capital at the end of period t-1 (and thus at the beginning of period t

Both , the theory of investment and the theory of capital are different For example : if all capital is circulating capital , so that it is completely used up within a period , then no capital built up during the previous period can be brought over into next period . In this special case , the theory of capital and the theory of investment become one and the same thing

However , the case of fixed capital is different and more complicated . It needs two different things to be addressed : the amount of capital and the amount of investment . One is about the desired level of capital stock . The other is about the desired rate of investment flow . The decisions governing one will inevitably affect the other , but it is not necessarily the case that one is reducible to the other

There are two ways of thinking about investment . These are referred as the “Hayekian ” and “Keynesian ” perspectives (Alchian , 1955 . The Hayekian perspective envisions investment as the adjustment to equilibrium and thus the optimal amount of investment is effectively… [banner_entry_footer]
