For researchers who are fully content with the “as if” explanations of these phenomena offered by rational agency cost models and asymmetric information models, the theoretical power of managerial optimism may be of little interest. The degrees of freedom offered by both rational agency cost and asymmetric information theories should, in most cases, allow them to capture many of the predictions generated by the optimism assumption (albeit less parsimoniously). The theoretical power of managerial optimism (and other behavioral assumptions) cannot be denied, however, by those who seek to sort out which of several “as if” theories seems best to describe the world, perhaps partly by reference to the realism of assumptions.

MANAGERIAL OPTIMISM 671 Assumption 2: Managers take all projects that they believe have positive net present values (including the perceived net present value of financing) and never take projects—including perquisite consumption—that they believe to have negative net present value. The third assumption ensures that the capital market is rational: Assumption 3: Security prices always reflect discounted expected future cash flows under the true probability distributions. While future work with the managerial optimism assumption could relax the third assumption to study the interactions of irrational managers and inefficient markets,4 assuming that the competitive capital market is more rational than the management of a single firm seems the better benchmark.

To explore managerial optimism’s explanatory power, it is important to isolate its effects from the influence of assumptions made by the two predominant approaches to corporate finance: the asymmetric information approach and the empire-building/rational agency cost approach. , Myers and Majluf 1984) assume that managers have information that the capital market does not have. Empire-building/rational agency cost theories (for example, Hart 1993 and Jensen 1986) assume that it is impossible (or at least very costly) to write contracts that fully control managerial incentives.
