The scope of the analyses of public and private investment projects is expanded beyond the traditional criteria of financial and economic net present value. If the economic and financial analyses are carried out using a common numeraire, they can include issues of stakeholder impacts, poverty impacts, and an assessment of the long-term sustainability of the project. We can now assess the income impacts on different interest groups. This forces the analyst to do a reconciliation between the economic performance, the financial performance and the distributional impacts of a project.
