Abstract The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and Modified Internal Rate (MIRR) of Return are imperative to understanding the investment on a project and the expected returns or profitability. Under the valuation method of IRR is to accept the project which has the greater number of required rate of return, or otherwise, reject the project. However, MIRR is better indicator of the project’s true profitability

IRR v. MIRR Valuation Methods

The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) is defined as the rate of return that would make the present value of future cash flows plus the final market value of an investment or business opportunity equal the current market price of the investment or opportunity. The
Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR) assumes that positive cash flows are reinvested at the firm's cost of capital, and the initial outlays are financed at the firm's financing cost. Therefore, MIRR more accurately reflects the cost and profitability of a project. (inestwords ) Valuation methods can be used to appropriately allocate the needed resources. This can improve timing and the quality of the allocated funds. The invested projects are expected to be profitable in the forecasted time frame. It is best if organizations make the profit faster than expected time frame, because going beyond that timeline can create losses.
The underlying principle of IRR is to present the expected rate of return of the project. If the IRR exceeds the cost of funds used to finance the project, a surplus remains after paying for the capital, and this surplus accrues to the firm’s stockholders. Therefore, taking the project which the IRR exceeds its cost of capital increases shareholder’s wealth. On the other hand, if the IRR is less than the cost of capital, then the decision to take on the project imposes a cost on current..

Reduced-Form Estimation vs. Structural Modeling in Labor Economics

...! Yuanyuan Liu Prof. Rust ECON 615: PartII October 30, 2012 Reduced-Form Estimation vs. Structural Modeling in Labor Economics Liu 1 This analysis is to compare and contrast two labor papers presented at the IZA Young Professionals program at Georgetown University last week. They are Explaining Charter School Effectiveness by Angrist, Pathak and Walters and Matching, Sorting and Wages by Lise, Meghir and Robin. The first one uses a reduced-form approach to study the treatment effect of charter school attendance while the second one develops a structural search-matching model to study optimal labor market policies. As will be discussed below, these two papers ask very different questions; and thus utilize very different empirical approaches, both well-suited for the purposes of each paper. In the Explaining Charter School Effectiveness paper, the authors ask the following questions: Do charter schools generate achievement gains? What are the causes of charter school treatment effect heterogeneity? They conduct a semi-parametric investigation of heterogeneous potential outcomes, and estimation of LATE gives mixed results for urban and non-urban charter schools. This charter school treatment effect heterogeneity is referred by the authors as “urban charter advantage”: urban charter schools boost student achievement while charter schools in other setting do not. Then they seek to isolate sources of charter effect heterogeneity through both student-level and......

Economic Social and Cultural Human Rights vs. Civil and Political Human Rights

...Civil and political vs./and economic, social and cultural rights Summary: In the beginning of this essay I focused on differences between first and second generations of human rights and their respective covenants, as well as on reasons behind the decision to create two separate covenants. In second part, I defended the position of economic, social and cultural rights as real rights equal to civil and political rights by analyzing the important concept of "core" rights created by the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. In the end, I dealt with justiciability of these rights, mostly focusing on new, soon available individual complaint procedure under the Optional Protocol to ICESCR. Civil and political rights vs. economic, social and cultural rights Human rights are usually divided into three generations. This essay is however going to focus only on first and second generation, namely political/civil rights and economic/social/cultural rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 includes rights that are considered to be rights of both generations, but does not make the distinction between generations itself. While the first generation was further embodied in International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the second generations is contained in International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). These two covenants, together with first Optional Protocol to ICCPR, were adopted in the single UN......

Racial and Multicultiral Tolerance vs. Economic and Societal Benefits

...Racial and Multicultural Tolerance vs. Economic and Societal Benefits We exist in a society where intolerance for the racial and cultural differences of others is commonplace, and solidly rooted. Whether you live in the US, Middle East, Europe, or Asia, situations can be found where matters of money, domestic dispute, war, torture, and rape, have been incited or settled based on the ethnicity of parties involved (amnesty.org). Though it has for over a hundred years been the outspoken goal of certain societies to change this environment of unfairness, and in many cases injustice, – with the United States being the forerunner in this endeavor – the change, especially in the past several decades, can be considered modest at best (Lewis Mumford Report). For years we’ve listened to politicians support visionary ideas of bringing together people of varied ethnic backgrounds. “Until justice is blind to color,” stated Lyndon Johnson during his presidency, “until education is unaware of race, until opportunity is unconcerned with the color of men’s skin, emancipation will be a proclamation but not a fact.” Government programs like affirmative action were designed with the hope in mind of them being the keys to closing the gap between the economically and socially superior, and the historically underprivileged (Ravitch). Futurists and creative thinkers have come and gone preaching the idea, the dream, of a time when racial injustices would be a thing of the past, and yet it......

Economic Development vs. Environment Protection

...Economic Development vs. Environment Protection Whether international leadership and worldwide cooperation should place particular emphasis on protection of the environment is a controversial issue that has drawn considerable attention recently. According to Vishwa Mohan, there was a debate on the climate-damaging refrigerant gas, that whether the UNFCCC principles should apply for phasing out the HFC at Warsaw green meeting on Nov, 18, 2013. As a matter of fact, during the phase-out of CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) under the Montreal Protocol, manufacturers of equipment such as car air conditioners and kitchen refrigerators modified their product to use HFC instead. On the one hand, though HFC was not an ozone-depleting gas, the US and other developed countries contended that addressing HFC under the Montreal Protocol was for the common good. While on the other hand, India and many developing counties including Persian Gulf nations preferred to give priority to their domestic industries, which alternative technologies and low cost were taken into consideration. Admittedly, this controversial issue exhausts the practical applications of Utilitarianism to a certain extent. For Rachels’ perspective, “According to Classical Utilitarianism, an action is right if it produces the greatest overall balance of happiness over unhappiness.” (Rachels 110) As far as I am concerned, I tend to believe that emphasis on the overwhelming importance of phasing out HFC for the purpose of......

Economics Classical vs Keynesian

...Homework 3 * Explain differences between Keynesian and Classical Economics. The differences between Keynesian and Classical Economics are as follows: Keynesian economics believe that when the economy is in a recession that price and wage remain the same and are inflexible. Wages are unable to be lowered beyond a certain point due to union contracts and minimum wage laws and will not be raised due to the supply of unemployed workers willing to work at the prevailing wages and the price of goods remain fixed due to steady supply and no change in demand. In order to jump start the economy Keynesian economics suggest that increased government spending will increase the GDP thereby shifting the aggregate demand curve which can help jumpstart the economy by creating more demand and resulting in the demand for labor to meet that demand. The classical economics viewpoint is that the economy will self-regulate over time and the government should take hands off approach. They believe that price and wage will remain flexible and increase or decrease as needed to maintain equilibrium in the economy. * In your opinion when (if ever) should the government use Keynesian economic policy? I believe the government should follow the Keynesian economic policy in times of recession such as they did in the most recent one in 2009. The Keynesian policy will help increase the aggregate demand by raising the GDP which will create the need for workers to meet that demand. This......

Npv vs Irr

...IRRC To know whether a project is feasible in terms of returns on investment, a firm needs to evaluate it with a process called capital budgeting and the tool which is commonly used for the purpose is called IRR. This method tells the company whether making investments on a project will generate the expected profits or not. As it is a rate that is in terms of percentage, unless its value is positive any company should not proceed ahead with a project. The higher the IRR, the more desirable a project becomes. This means that IRR is a parameter that can be used to rank several projects that a company is envisaging. IRR can be taken as the rate of growth of a project. While it is only estimation, and the real rates of return might be different, in general if a project has a higher IRR, it presents a chance of higher growth for a company. NPV This is another tool to calculate to find out the profitability of a project. It is the difference between the values of cash inflow and cash outflow of any company at present. For a layman, NPV tells the value of any project today and the estimated value of the same project after a few years taking into account inflation and some other factors. If this value is positive, the project can be undertaken, but if it is negative, it is better to discard the project. This tool is extremely helpful for a company when it is considering to buy or takeover any other company. For the same reason, NPV is the preferred...

Democracy vs Economic Growth

...current consumption. These demands, in turn, threaten profits; hence they reduce investment and retard growth. Democracy is thus inimical to economic development.” Vaman Rao states that “economic development is a process for which huge investments in human and material capital are required. Such investment programs imply cuts in current consumption that would be painful at the low levels of living that exist in almost all developing socities. Governments must resort to strong measures and they enforce them with an iron hand in order to marshall the surpluses needed for investment. If such measures were put to a popular vote, they would surely be defeated. No political party can hope to win a democratic election on a platform of current sacrifices for a bright future”.4 Democracy means that more interests are represented. Of course, there are a lot of good sides of that. However, one of the implication is that governments are going to increase spendings on different kinds of donations or give privillages to some groups of people, which will limit the country’a ability for investment. Because the elections take place quite often, it is hard for the rulers to look farer than to the next voting. Adam Przeworski and Fernando Limongi in their article “Political Regimes and Economic Growth” indicate that it is a common thinking that not democracy, but authoritatianism helps economy to growth foster, as only under this......

Classical Economics vs. Keynesian Economics

...My research of Classical Economics and Keynesian Economics has given me the opportunity to form an opinion on this greatly debated topic in economics. After researching this topic in great lengths, I have determined the Keynesian Economics far exceeds greatness for America compared to that of Classical Economics. I will begin my paper by first addressing my understanding of both economic theories, I will then compare and contrast both theories, and end my paper with my opinions on why I believe Keynesian Economics is what is best for America.  Classical Economics is a theory that suggests by leaving the free market alone without human intervention; equilibrium will be obtained. This theory was the first school of thought for economists and one of the major theorists and founders of Classical Economics was Adam Smith. Smith stated, “By pursuing his own interest, he (man) frequently promotes that (good) of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it. I (Adam Smith) have never known much good done by those who affected to trade for the public good.”(Patil) Classical Economic theory assumes three basic ideas: Flexible Prices, Shay’s Law, and Savings-Investment equality. Flexible prices in Classical theory suggests prices will rise and fall as needed but is not always true, due to, the interference of government agencies including unions and laws. Smith stated in the Wealth of the Nation (1776), “Civil government, so far it is instituted for the......

Economic Globalization Pro vs. Con

...Economic globalization and trade liberalization have released many restrictions in regards to trade. Now, foreign countries can communicate and distribute items very cheaply compared to previous years. Yet, controversial opinions arose and residents have questioned the effects of economic globalization as an advantageous venture. I completely agree with those people. Supporters of economic globalization state that it brings cheaper products and increased availability of diverse products. Because items can be manufactured and produced cheaper in foreign countries, they can be sold cheaper. Because of economic globalization, we can take advantage of this and provide cheaper products to our residents while producing and distributing the products cheaper as well. Furthermore, regarding the increased availability of products, more products become available to us because of our multiple outlets to several foreign countries. That is to say, we can obtain items from not only China and Japan, but from Australia, the Middle East, countries in Africa, and many more. (Maybe add on?) While economic globalization has gained a positive connotation, there are negative aspects that have more strength refuting its so-called progressiveness. These negative aspects include a job loss and an increase dependency on foreign countries. The majority of the items we buy today come from foreign countries and will continue to come from foreign countries. As a result, local monopolies and industries...

Accept the project which has a positive NPV will create positive economic value added and market value added. In this case, it can be seen clearly from Table 1, SSW and CCS both has a positive NPV, they all create value and wealth for the company. What should be mentioned is that, the NPV of SSW is higher than CCS, it means SSW could add more value than CCS. Table 1. the NPVs of SSW and CCS SSW CCS NPV 240,796.39 226,897.07 2.IRR IRR(Internal Rate of Return ) is the discount rate that make the inflows to equal the initial cost, in other word, it makes NPV to equal to zero. IRR is an estimate of expected project's rate of return. If this return exceed the cost of the capital used to the project, the part of difference is a dividend to shareholders and causes the stock's price to rise. If the IRR is less than cost of capital , shareholders have to make up. In this case, the cost of capital of these two restaurants both equal to 10%, the Table 2 shows that the IRR of SSW is 28.35% and the IRR of CCS is 31.08% , both higher than 10%. But CCS has a higher IRR than SSW.
