A Neo-Austrian perspective on the value of growth prospects

Andrea Mantovi () and A. Schianchi ()

No 2015-EP01, Economics Department Working Papers from Department of Economics, Parma University (Italy)

Abstract: The valuation framework inherent to the neo-Austrian theory of capital set forth by Hicks’ (1973) is discussed in terms of a fundamental formula which disentangles the profitability associated with the scale of operation from the internal rate of return of the production process. The formula is employed to tailor a perspective on the value of investment prospects, meant to complement the insights embodied by Tobin’s q metric. Balance sheet recessions are briefly discussed as a cogent line of application of our formula. Potential lines of progress are envisioned.
