No 283930, 1976 Annual Meeting, August 15-18, State College, Pennsylvania from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Portfolio theory is-used to explore the kinds of risk-return effects induced by investments in indivisible assets. It is shown that risk-return economies require higher levels of return and risk as the size of the fixed investment increases and portfolio choices can be limited using Baumol's EL criterion.
