nsmet error in a simple equation which I can solve by hand


Dear Mathematica users,

if I enter the following command in Mathematica:


E^(-r t) (-E^(r t) + (L + s)^-\[Alpha] ((L + s)^(1 - \[Alpha]) + (1 -
c) t)^(-1 + 1/(1 - \[Alpha]))) == 0
I get this error: Solve::nsmet: This system cannot be solved with the
methods available to Solve.

All I want to do is rewrite the equation on terms of L. The thing is
that it easily solvable by hand by factoring out, having E^(r t) on
the RHS and then raising each side by (1-alpha)/alpha.

Do you have an idea how to solve this problem? Thank you for your
help!
Felix
