Ranking Investment Alternatives-A New Look
Present capital budgeting techniques for ranking investment alternatives do not allocate capital efficiently among projects for which the rate of return varies with the amount invested. Current techniques for developing a capital demand schedule for a firm or organization divert funds from higher-return to lower-return projects. A technique is proposed for developing a new type of capital demand schedule that aggregates the marginal rate-of-return curves of individual projects. This leads to a greater investment in projects promising the highest rates of return, and results in a more efficient allocation of capital.
