In earlier days, under the crude methods then prevailing, a given manufacturing plant might earn, say, ten percent on its invested capital; but when power machinery and improved processes came into use and earnings increased, say, to twentyfive or forty per cent, the practice began of putting a valuation on this increased earning power, and the value of a given property, instead of being based on its original or replacement cost, came to be measured by its capacity to earn profits.
