Thus, in the remainder of this article we seek to identify commonly shared methods and techniques that provide enough flexibility to enable calculations of a wide range of the RCFC in Japan and in the United States.
Because the aim of this article is to calculate a wide range of point estimates of the RCFC, two market expectation assumptions were considered.
Referring to the previous discussion of the ranges of the general results, we can now see that the largest difference in the RCFC occurs when: (1) the earnings/share price ratio is not adjusted for anticipated earnings growth; (2) no French and Poterba (1990) adjustment is made to the Japanese share price/earnings ratio; (3) the rational expectations assumption is used to generate expected inflation; and (4) the French and Poterba weights are employed.
But it is noteworthy that taxes increase the RCFC substantially in both the U.
In spite of these words of caution, perhaps it would be instructive to go one step further and contemplate how these national tax rates would alter the relative RCFC comparisons presented in Tables 1-4.
