An approach to find the return rate on non-simple investment projects


  • Edgar Achong V.

    (Universidad de Los Andes, Facultad de Economía)


Nuestra intención inicial fue la de divulgar algunas ideas acerca del cálculo de la rentabilidad de los proyectos de inversión. Estas ideas tienen hoy en día una aceptación general en el campo del análisis financiero. Su enseñanza, sin embargo, no ha tenido la misma suerte. Cuando algún tipo de conocimiento es aceptado, pero no enseñado con la profusión que merece, se debe pensar que existe alguna complejidad en la exposición del mismo. Ésta es la razón por la cual este tema no suele ser tratado, en todo su contenido, en los textos de enseñanza del análisis financiero. Cuando se arriesgan a hacerlo, la exposición suele ser confusa y poco práctica.
