En general, las diferentes teorias que se han planteado para explicar la inversion se basan en problemas de optimizacion dinamica cuyas soluciones cuentan con diferentes metodos. En dichos modelos, los valores optimos de las variables de control y de estado, etiquetadas como inversion y capital respectivamente, dependen de los precios futuros del producto y de los factores de la produccion y del nivel de capital al final del periodo. En este articulo sugerimos un nuevo metodo para obtener los niveles optimos de inversion sin requerir informacion sobre los precios futuros o las condiciones de transversalidad. Asi, en lugar de maximizar el valor presente de los flujos de caja por unidad de capital, como un indice de desempeno, la empresa maximiza el valor actual del flujo de caja por unidad de capital.
