The proposed dissertation will study, credit directing impact over Total Factor Productivity (TFP) using an occupational choice model with heterogeneous agents. The underlying hypothesis is that, once there is directing credit to an arbitrary subset of individuals, individual's set of choices is altered, which causes some non-benefited more talented entrepreneurs to stay smaller and some benefited less talented entrepreneurs growth bigger than they would without the directing credit policy. Hence, an agent's type, wealth and talent will determine occupational choice and firm size endogenously. To provide quantitative estimates of policy effects, the model will be calibrated with Brazilian data. Simulations with counterfactually different values for policy-determined parameters will be analyzed. (AU)
