Aiming to provide readers with an understanding of the concepts and methods for investment project evaluation, the authors (of the Institut Francais du Petrole, France) present case-based examples and exercises (along with their answers) of economic analysis. They present the exercise in 12 chapters covering cash flow analysis; book rate of return and payback period; basics of discounting; evaluating projects and comparing alternatives; marginal cost, equivalent cost, and replacement analysis; after-tax analysis ; calculations in nominal and real terms--effects of inflation on profitability; impact of technological progress upon equivalent cost and replacement analysis; discount rate, cost of capital, and capital rationing; alternative methods and special cases in financing mix and project evaluation; interdependent projects and the use of optimization methods; and decision theory and real option analysis in the context of investment under uncertainty. Distributed in the US by Enfield.
