dc.description.abstract This dissertation is concerned with the evaluation of capital investment projects in an inflationary environment. To start with, the effects of inflation on evaluation methods were determined. It was found that during the past ten years a large number of potential projects which were borderline or not viable in the Republic of South Africa, were viable elsewhere. There could be numerous contributing factors to this, including different economies of scale. The political changes in South Africa have resulted in an opening up of trade with the rest of the world, but higher inflation in the RSA than in its major trading partners will cause a margin squeeze. It is necessary that companies be able to succeed in an open market, and that new chemical projects take both imports and exports into account if they are to compete domestically and internationally. It is clear from the results of the study that any increase of either inflation or taxation will reduce the economic viability of a project. The current high inflation and tax rates make projects uncompetitive as investments in South Africa compared with most Western European and Pacific Rim Countries. en
