A Conceptual Framework for the Economic Evaluation of Industrial Projects



    (Department of Regional Expansion, Canada)


The paper presents a theoretical framework for the appraisal of industrial projects. The analysis begins with the commercial evaluation followed by the economic evaluation from the national point of view. Notes are also made regarding indirect effects, the impact of the project on a town and other infrastructure, and the magnitude of direct assistance offered by governments.
