Finansowanie inwestycji rzeczowych w warunkach gospodarki polskiej i czeskiej
The article concerns the relationship between finance and physical investment. It is empirical. Article objectives are: to provide the reader with comparable data on the sources of physical investment financing in the two countries, i.e. Poland and the Czech Republic, and to determine whether there were changes in the corporate sector financing in the period 1995–2010, and if so what are they? This paper assesses the relationship between changes in the financing and the cyclical nature of physical investment. The study used net sources of finance methodology initiated by Mayer (1988, 1990), Corbett and Jenkinson (1994, 1997). It uses the flow of funds rather than stock data. The data used in the conducted analyzes are derived from national accounts. National reporting used in Poland and the Czech Republic is consistent with the assumptions of the SNA’93 and ESA’95.
