We also perform similar exercises for the supply-chain power and customer concentration and the results in columns (2) and (4) suggest that the debt benefit of customer concentration is more pronounced for low-SCP firms.

However, when a firm has high customer-base concentration, the debt benefit of supply chain power also increases. All firms are risk neutral with a risk-free interest rate of r, and I assume that r > α / (1 − γ) + γ σ 2 / 2 (1 − γ) 2 to ensure convergence.

Consequently, we partly control for this demand with Leverage, a firm's long-term debt scaled by book assets. The last column reports the results when the bargaining power proxy is Concentration Ratio. As predicted, we find significant and positive coefficients on Concentration Ratio for suppliers (, t=).

We show that under some conditions this political bargain mitigates the debt accumulation problem. We analyze various rules and find that when political polarization is high, harsh fiscal rules (e.g., government shutdown) maximize the opposition's bargaining power and leads to lower debt accumulation.

Bargaining power in horizontal mergers is likely to be determined in part by a different form of industry dependence, namely, vulnerability to a price war (Saloner, ).
