Abstract : Technology is placed in the clusters of the industrial base and the clusters are defined. The clusters are blended with different sets of economic condition and the preservation of earning power established as the objective function for any investment. The link between the clusters, the environment and the objective function is established through taxes and the tax impact on depreciation time and replacement value is analyzed. This analysis is used to discuss the decision process for industrial-technological investment. The observations made in the analysis are summarized and suggestions are made on how to respond to reality.
