In 1999, RAND published Defense Working Capital Fund Pricing Policies: Insights
from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (Keating and Gates, 1999). That
document analyzed the Defense Finance and Accounting Service’s (DFAS’s) cost
structure and recommended changes in Defense Working Capital Fund (DWCF)

structure and pricing policies via a project entitled “Improving the Defense
Finance and Accounting Service’s Price Structure.
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

the capital markets who subscribe for bonds and other securities issued by companies.

Making money demands effort, whether working for a salary
or investing. You get nothing for nothing. Anyone who tells
you the stock market is an absolute doddle, and money for old
rope, is either a conman or a fool. And the proof of that became
very clear with the stock market depressions starting in 2007.
This report releases the findings of a project undertaken with Delegates of Working
Party No. 2 of the OECD Committee on Fiscal Affairs, investigating policy
considerations in the tax treatment of capital gains of individuals and alternative design

gains/losses of resident taxpayers on domestic assets).
The number one concern of start-up entrepreneurs and growing small business
owners and managers is how to finance their venture. When the personal
financial resources of the entrepreneur are exhausted, when the
tradition of going to family and friends for “cradle equity” has been thoroughly
“worked,” and when incurring personal debt from a bank for a loan
is no longer a viable option, then raising private capital can be one of the
toughest challenges for many entrepreneurs.
Dignity at Work
Human dignity, the ability to establish a sense of self-worth and selfrespect and to enjoy the respect of others, is necessary for a fully realized life. Working with dignity is a fundamental part of achieving a life well-lived, yet the workplace often poses challenging obstacles because of mismanagement or managerial abuse. Defending dignity and realizing self-respect through work are key to workers’ well-being. Insuring the dignity of employees is equally important for organizations as they attempt to make effective use of their human capital.

Above all, remember that accounting is a vehicle for providing financial information in a form
that assists decision-making. Work hard at presenting your work as neatly as possible and
remember that pictures (in this case, financial figures) only carry half the message. When you
are asked for them, words of explanation and insight are essential in order to make an examiner
appreciate what you know and that you actually understand what the figures mean.

later. Since the cash f low is deferred, the true value of that sale to the firm is somewhat diminished. By focusing on cash f lows and when they occur, NPV ref lects the true value of increased revenues and costs. Consequently, NPV analysis requires that accounting data be unraveled to reveal the underlying cash f lows. That is why changes in net working capital must be accounted for and why depreciation does not show up directly.
Principle No. 2: Use Expected Values
There is always going to be some uncertainty over future cash f lows. Future costs and...
Some 20 years ago, after years of teaching corporate finance and writing
related textbooks and casebooks, I began teaching healthcare financial
management in the University of Florida’s Master of Health Administration
(MHA) program. The move prompted me to write my first healthcare
