Abstract

Mr Jose de Valencia must decide whether to recommend to his family and outside investors to invest a total of $4.5 million in a manufacturing facility to produce hand-blown, hand-cut leaded crystal housewares in the Philippines. This venture will be quite risky, since six Irish technicians will have to be employed for a period of two years to train the workers, and it is not known if export markets will accept high-quality crystal produced in the Philippines. If the venture is not successful, the resale value of the plant and equipment, to say nothing of the training costs, will be zero. There is a simplified Chinese version available ''9A97GC10''.
