ARCP 2

In this multimedia case, Bruce Wood of ARCP wrestles with an intriguing challenge. His company was able to secure an asphalt supplier for one hundred and ninety seven dollars and fifty cents a ton, which is below a previously calculated transfer price. This meant that it was no longer cheaper to buy asphalt internally as it could be bought for less elsewhere. The case deals with the implications of this finding.
