Rothschild is the author of an article in the November 2006 issue of Strategic Finance magazine,[7] where he wrote about how there is a failure of large asset-intensive companies to accurately measure return on assets (ROA). He described how companies that have "managed to integrate velocity and margin metrics at the transactional level allow their managers to model the ROA implications of their choices—before they make them." He argued that they can then make the adjustments in product mix, customer mix, asset mix, and pricing levels that lead to an increase in profits.
