Chapter 1 - An introduction to accounting. Why should you study accounting? You should study accounting because it can help you succeed in business. Imagine playing football or monopoly without knowing how to keep score. In business, accounting is how you keep score. If you do not know the rules of the game, you will be severely disadvantaged.

Extensive evidence confirms that creating the conditions for a deep and efficient financial
system can contribute robustly to sustained economic growth and lower poverty (e.g., see
Beck, Levine, and Loayza 2000, Honohan 2004a, and World Bank 2001a). Moreover, in
all levels of development, continued efficient and effective provision of financial services
requires that financial policies and financial system structures be adjusted as needed in

In a decentralized-decisions economic environment, agents consider the risk that others
might unfairly exploit informational asymmetries to their own advantage. Incomplete trust,
affects, in particular, financial transactions whereby agents trade current real claims for promises
of future real claims. Agents thus invest considerable resources to assess the trustworthiness of
others with whom they know they can interact only under conditions of limited and
asymmetrically distributed information, and to ensure compliance with contractual obligations.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The financial crisis of 2007-09 highlighted the changing role of financial institutions and the growing importance of the żshadow banking system,ż which grew out of the securitization of assets and the integration of banking with capital market developments.

These fixed dollar payments approximate an amount of direct financial injury that borrowers
may have suffered as a result of a specific error. The regulators believe that payments of
designated amounts for particular types of injury will avoid the need for borrowers to provide

an examination of the particular circumstances involved in each borrower’s case.

capital in more than one country are faced
with the increased compliance costs and
inefficiencies of preparing multiple sets of
financial statements to comply with different
jurisdictional accounting requirements.
While the growth in ETF markets is at an early stage in a number of countries, the speed and

market segments which call for closer scrutiny. ETFs have branched out to other asset classes
(fixed-income, credit, emerging markets, commodities) where liquidity is typically thinner
