Corporate finance participates in economic development of Romania. There are theories and approaches which shape investment decisions and finance decisions. During the euro crisis these theories and approaches failed to emulate reasonable use of such decisions. Romania has remained robust during the euro crisis. Therefore the investment decisions and finance decisions are independent to theories and approaches during the crisis. Theories and approaches are describing the changes in investment decisions and finance decisions.  The explanations are only offered.
