Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book should prove valuable for the individual interested in the technical aspects of discounting for energy project selection as well as for the reader wanting only a general overview of the topic. It has a wide application for not only the researcher, but also for use in the college classroom and the policy making arena...very comprehensive coverage of the issues involved in the selection of a discount rate for investment decisions.'
