I need a 2 page outline to help me write a good literature review on "Capital Budgeting and Long-Term Financing"

This is not the completed outline. It is a work in progress. The subject is vary broad and so were the article choices. I have narrowed the focus and then added some references for several of the areas. If you read through the article and find it sufficient, check at the end to find some additional references used by the author(s). I also applied several of your articles where I think they would be used in the lit review. However, many of the articles from both can be applied in more than one category.
