Why is goodwill a valuable asset? How is it measured? How can you create goodwill? How does the Internet fit in? Summary
In one way or another, business activity must be financed. Without finance to support
their fixed assets and working capital requirements, businesses could not exist. There are
three primary sources of finance for companies:
● a cash surplus from operating activities
● new equity funding
● borrowing from bank and non-bank sources. Non-bank sources are mainly investors in
the capital markets who subscribe for bonds and other securities issued by companies.
Your goals for this “merchandising” chapter are to learn about:
Merchandising businesses and related sales recognition issues.
Purchase recognition issues for the merchandising business.
Alternative inventory system: The perpetual method.
Enhancements of the income statement.
The control structure.
In this chapter we explore the pattern of interest rates for different-term assets. We attempt to identify the factors that account for that pattern and determine what information may be derived from an analysis of the so-called term structure of interest rates, the structure of interest rates for discounting cash flows of different maturities.
The essence of knowledge management is to improve organizational performance by
approaching to the processes such as acquiring knowledge, converting knowledge into useful
form, applying or using knowledge, protecting knowledge by intentional and systematic
method, and knowledge management can be understood by innovation process of
organization with individual to search for creative problem solving method.
This paper studies the responses of residential property and equity prices,
inflation and economic activity to monetary policy shocks in 17 countries,
using data spanning 1986-2006. We estimate VARs for individual economies
and panel VARs in which we distinguish between groups of countries on the
basis of the characteristics of their financial systems. The results suggest that
using monetary policy to offset asset price movements in order to guard
against financial instability may have large effects on economic activity.
The King is dead; long live the King! That famous cry sums up most aspects of modern
business practice. The previously existing competitive environment, scope, internal
structures, and automation support needs of an enterprise have disappeared and been
replaced by other sets of conditions and requirements. In time, those needs, too, will
disappear and be replaced by yet another set and much more quickly than before. The
concept of “Internet years” applies to most aspects of modern life.
Mutual funds charge two kinds of fees: expenses and loads. Expenses comprise the management
fee (typically a fixed percentage of assets under management) and other recurring operating
costs—such as custodian, administration, accounting, registration, and transfer agent fees.
Rather than charging explicit fees for these expenses, funds deduct them on a daily basis from
the fund's net assets. Expenses are expressed as a percentage of assets under management (the
expense ratio). Loads are one-time fees used to compensate distributors.
The amount of capitalization required by a bad bank is essentially determined by two
factors: operating costs and acquisition costs. When a low price is paid for the acquired
troubled assets, this not only minimizes the risk of future losses but also keeps the initial
capital requirements of the bad bank low.
The source of financing determines whether the government or private sector provides
the required start-up funding. The need for liquid funds depends on how the banks being
freed of their troubled assets will be “paid.
The process of bank deleveraging is expected to increase in 2012 with
a pipeline of opportunities, such as large loan portfolios, continuing
to materialize. With bank capital structures supported through
unconventional means, it may require a further uncontrolled external
shock to significantly accelerate the deleveraging process. Opportunities
for investors will, however, continue to emerge with capital strategy
expected to be a key driver of an increase in transaction activity.
This multiple-case study focuses on the practices and functions of customer reference marketing, and on the
ways through which customer references can be deployed as marketing assets. The research is based on
multiple-case-study methodology and the empirical findings were derived from an in-depth analysis of 38
semi-structured personal interviews with managers in four case companies operating in the fields of process
and information technology.
Structured products are very popular in Europe and in
Australasia, and are becoming more popular in the USA.
Figure 2 shows that structured products are one of the
fastest growing areas within the financial services sector.
In 2002 about USD 65 billion of these products were being
issued to retail clients in Europe, whereas by 2006 this had
grown to over USD 180 billion of new issues per annum.
In 2002 about USD 20 billion was issued to retail clients in
Asia, whereas by 2006 the volume was closer to USD 100
billion. These sales considerably understate the flows...
Possibilities can be explained from several semantic aspects. One way to
explain possibility is ease of achievement. Another way is plausibility; that is,
the propensity of an event to occur, which relates to the concept of “potential
surprise”. A third way to explain possibility is logical consistency with
available information. Finally, possibility can be explained as preference,
referring to the willingness of an agent to make a decision. Possibility is
dually related to necessity in the sense that “not A” being not possible means
that A is necessary.
The field of LRSPs cited by the second highest number of respondents was, broadly
speaking, asset identification/categorisation. This includes, for example, the designation of
permissible investments and/or required investments for mutual funds as well as the
establishment of, and exceptions to, investment concentration limits for particular types of
assets. In most cases, member jurisdictions reported that credit ratings were used in both the
banking and securities sectors.

Article 27 of the Federal Constitution serves as the foundation for property rights in Mexico. Under
Article 27, only Mexicans by birth or naturalization and Mexican corporations have the inherent right
to acquire ownership of land. Even so, the state has the authority to grant foreigners the same right
given to its citizens to acquire real property, but only if foreign purchasers agree not to invoke the
protection of their governments in matters relating to real property.
Community arts and cultural activities, through their intrinsic expressive
and exploratory processes and products, have the capacity to catalyze or
reinforce place-making through each component of the architecture of
community: through the coalescing of social and civic relationships around
creative activity; through the creation and reinforcement of quality public
assets that incubate or nurture art and culture; through market demand for
commercial and residential space used by artists and the creative sector in
general; and through networked enterprises of cultural instituti...
The effect is to leave the North with positive rates of genuine savings, and many resource-rich
Southern countries with negative or near-zero rates. This distracts attention from analysis of the
‘environmental space’ occupied by economies with strong, traditionally-defined economic growth
— and excessive consumption of the world’s resources.
Many people argue that reducing
Northern consumption levels is central to curbing excessive resource depletion and pollution and
reducing global inequalities in energy use and other forms of consumption.
Prior to the US Securities Acts contractual uses of accounting ("stewardship") were considered the prime reasons for the calculation of accounting earnings. For example, Leake (1912, pp. 1-2) lists management's requirement to ascertain and distribute earnings according to the differential rights of the various classes of capital and profit sharing schemes as the leading two reasons for calculating earnings (other reasons given by Leake are income taxes and public utility regulation).
