    China is fast becoming a manufacturing superpower. High-tech companies, such as computer chip manufacturers, and low-tech companies, such as textile manufacturers, have built manufacturing facilities in China. Assume that you are CFO of an automobile manufacturer looking to build a $400 million (U.S.) plant in China. Discuss the factors that should determine the appropriate required return on this investment opportunity.

    Your discussion about China should begin with a clear logical explanation of the theory behind the concept of "required return."

    1. Is it possible to make a reasonably accurate estimate of the required return?
    2. Make an estimate of the required return, starting with a 12% weighted average cost of capital for the U.S. auto manufacturer, and adding reasonable estimated percentages for each of the separate risk elements you can foresee.
