The basis of this paper is a critical review of an article published in this journal, by Zafiris and Bayldon (JAAR, 5, 2, 2000), on Economic Value Added and Market Value Added. This review provides a detailed critique of the literature relating to EVA® and the underlying philosophy of the use of EVA® as a performance metric. Following this, there is a comment on the analysis provided by Zafiris and Bayldon and a review of the empirical evidence presented in support of their analysis. The paper demonstrates that the amendments to the EVA® model proposed by Zafiris and Bayldon are not original and are unlikely to result in a significant improvement to the usefulness of the original model.
