Economics, Finance and Quantitative Analysis
Cash flow based and accounting based criteria for corporate investment decisions are examined and compared. Even though one approach uses cash flows and the other approach uses accounting numbers, the values of the metrics produced, net present value and market value added, are shown to be identical. Use of net present value and market value added produce the same corporate investment decisions.
