Capital budgeting is a complicated process that is essential to an organization’s making good investment decisions. Please give an example of a capital budgeting decision a company might need to make. Once a business computes its cost of capital, how does a manager decide whether to take on a project or not? What considerations might inform the decision?

This discussion is more interesting if we review either your personal experiences and/or the financial literature to identify and present a description of one actual capital project/product failure and the reasons attributed to the failure. For those of you who do not have personal experiences the following are some illustrated examples of failed projects/products over the last 50 years you may want to look up and consider: -New Coke,- The Iridium Satellite Communication,- the Edsel automobile, Beta (vs. VHS), the Concord SST, and various Dot Coms. Feel free to research others.
