Assessing the isk in Three Potential Investments
The way an investment is assessed will include consideration for the level of risk that is present in that investment. The higher a risk associated with a business the higher the required rewards referred to as the risk and reward equation. Where the risk premium increases this will also lead to the use of increased discount levels in discounted cash flow assessments, such as net present value (NPV) calculations.

But the major point of studying business, the authors write, is to provide a larger sense of what is needed to succeed in today's working world. Unlike previous generous of workers, who could succeed by mastering a few specific skills, today's workers have to be broadly educated, being able to exhibit: "honesty and integrity, willingness to work hard, dependability, time management skills, self-confidence, motivation, willingness to learn, communication skills, professionalism."
The chapter also provides basic definitions that will be used throughout the books, including "business" (the organized work of individuals coming together) and providing a brief overview of how capitalism works.….
