Abstract This paper studies the macroeconomic implications of rmsprecautionary real invest-ment behavior in response to the anticipation of future nancing constraints. Firms increase their demand for liquid and safe but low return investments in anticipation of future borrowing constraints, and this is shown to be at the source of a powerful am-pli cation channel of macroeconomic shocks. I show in a calibrated model that this mechanism is quantitatively signi cant, and that it explains business cycle patterns of aggregate and rm-level composition of real investment, of capital reallocation, and of cross-sectional heterogeneity, which are at odds with the existing models studying the macroeconomic implications of nancial frictions in rms in which expectations of future credit constraints do not a¤ect rmscurrent actions.
