This paper uses the industry-level data to investigate the effects of corporate debt on output pricing in a typical developing country. The panel estimations on the major two-digit industries reveal two basic findings. First, short-term debt leads to an increase in output prices while long-term debt has the opposite effect. Second, short-term debt but not long-term debt is found to have cyclical effects on prices.
