Abstract: Public projects don’t generate enough income to be financially justified, but create social benefits. Every project should be evaluated in order to make the investment decision.

This theoretical and empirical research disclosed limitations of the cost-benefit analysis, used for public projects evaluation and identified the problem field for improving the cost-benefit analysis or creating new methods for public project evaluation.
Keywords: investment, public project, social benefits, cost-benefit analysis
