Abstract: 
This paper uses a simple model to explore the effects of 'increasing demand risk' on business fixed investment. We show that within a putty-clay framework an increase in demand uncertainty can be expected to have two countervailing effects. On the one hand increasing risk tends to induce a firm to increase its capacity, but on the other hand the optimal capital intensity of that capacity decreases.
