Asset Valuation and Access
Stephen King ()
CEPR Discussion Papers from Centre for Economic Policy Research, Research School of Economics, Australian National University
The analysis presented in this paper broadly supports the use of historic or original cost asset valuation for access purposes. The arguments in favour of historic cost are impressive. It is administratively simple and transparent. It involves less subjective assessment and guess-work and usually will provide adequate incentives for investment and equivalent operational incentives compared with alternative valuation procedures.
