Time series properties of quoted securities were di?cult to replicate. In the search for more advanced models that capture the empirical ?ndings, researchers followed two approaches. The ?rst stream of - search ?tted the time series properties of corporate securities directly.

All studiesofthistypedonot consider the economics of the issuing companies but simply assume a stochastic behavior of the security or its state variables. In contrast, a second, economic literature developed by studying the ?rm. We call these kinds of models structural because the limited liability of equity holders is modeled explicitly as a function of ?rm value. One problem of the reduced form approach is its di?culty of int- pretation in an economic sense. Being technically advanced, reduced form models often lack an intuitive economic model and especially d- guise the economic assumptions. If security pricing is the only purpose of the exercise, we might not need an economic model. However, if we wanttounderstandpricemovements,aseriouslinkwiththeunderlying economics appears important.
