    Can someone please provide some assistance with a question. Its for an MBA course..... We can imagine the financial manager doing several things on behalf of the firm's stockholders. For example the manager might: a. Make shareholders as wealthy as possible by investing in real assets. b. Modify the firm's investment plan to help shareholders achieve a particular time pattern of consumption. c. Choose high- or low-risk assets to match shareholders' risk preferences. d. Help balance shareholders' checkbooks.
    But in well-functioning capital markets, shareholders will vote for only one of these goals. Which one? Why?
    Thank you so much in advance for your help. I really appreciate it.
