ABSTRACT
The author comments on the article "New Nuclear is Not Cost-Competitive," by Mark Cooper, published in the October 26, 2009 issue. The article alleged that the capital markets will not finance the construction of new nuclear reactors, making nuclear power plants noncompetitive. The author argues against Cooper's claims. He cites what he claims as the facts concerning the capital markets and nuclear power plant construction.
