Hmmm, if memory serves, corporations generally look for payback of 20% per year on direct investment.

Other hand ... during WW II, the US (and its allies) could move ships from say Florida to Southern California in about a week in generally temperate climate. German and Japanese ships wanting to make similar voyages would have spent a month or so rounding South America. Hard to put a dollar figure on that, but I'd not say it was worthless.

The rate threshold used depends on the breadth of the asset class it's based on (ROI, ROE, ROA, and so on).

Also, the required rate is inflated by the riskiness of the investment.

Good point about the War though ...
