Hello all,

I just started module 2 and I was wondering why do they ask us to determine the required return in order for the company to invest in country X but then they give us the required return ????

It might be really simple but I'm really confused

They want the required return for the two scenarios they are asking for, and they want a range of value for it

Ok but what are those numbers they give? SSx=5.75% and CEx=0.00%

Are those like the real numbers in the current situation of country X and we have to find the numbers for a worse scenario and numbers for a better scenario?
