The correct answer is: cost of capital Capital Rationing Capital rationing is a case in which a firm has a capital constraint. This constraint forces a firm to allocate funds in the most efficient way possible. Although being able to determine the profitability of a project is a valuable skill, analysts are forced to compare projects and allocate funds in the most efficient way possible, taking shareholder wealth into account. This must be extended all the way down to the individual project level. The expectation is that these individual projects will contribute to the firm’s overall value. Capital rationing seeks to limit a company’s investment. The capital rationing system employed will usually become stricter as a result of either reduced capital availability or when a company has a history of poor previous investments. This should be an expected outcome of a historical display of poor investment choices.
