Irreversibility and Interest Rates
The literature on irreversible investment fails to explore the relationship between the present value of alternative strategies and appropriate risk-adjusted interest rates. We attempt to fill this gap by showing that, to avoid arbitrage opportunities, the real option¡¦s rate must be higher than the rate of the immediate strategy. Further, we explain how irreversibility influences the risk-return combination of competing strategies acting as a pure risk factor.
