Tang Jijun (Liaoning University)  
The Paper is to analyze the consequence of industrial restructuring in terms of sunk intangible/tangible assets and contractual Commitments.Combined with imperfect market, the production possibility curve and indifference curve are to distinguish between the effect of the null and positive sunk costs on industrial restructuring.We have found that,not fixed costs, but sunk costs,are the only economic factor that influences the economic efficiency and wel- fare.Additionally we provide the solutions to industrial restructuring,e.g.reduce or recover the sunk costs,promote the mobility.When we apply the principle of sunk costs to SOEs reforms, we again gain from the sunk costs perspectives.
