...Wendell Gordon ACC/290 July 26, 2012 Shonda Meadows For years people have debated on which one of the financial statements was the most important. The purpose of this paper is to identify the four basic financial statements and the purpose they serve. Throughout this paper I will breakdown how the different financial statements could be useful for managers and their employees. I will also discuss how the different financial statements could be beneficial for creditors and investors. To conclude the paper I will summarize it all up with a conclusion. The four basic financial statements are balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, and statements of shareholders’ equity. Balance sheets break down what all a company owes and owns at a particular period of time .Balance sheets also contain valuable information such as a company’s liabilities, shareholders equity, and assets. Balance sheets contain information at the end of a reporting period. Balance sheets do not contain the all the ins and outs to accounts during a reporting period. A balance sheet is also referred to as a statement of financial position. Income statements provide you with how much money a company made and spent over a period of time. Income statements also provide you with the cost and the expenses associated with earning money. The bottom line on an income statement provides you with the amount of money a company loss or made. The top line on an income statement provides you with the...

THE HIDDEN TRUTH BEHIND GLOBAL DEBT . 1) What is money... how is it created and who creates it? 2) Why is almost everyone up to their eyeballs in debt... individuals, businesses and whole nations? 3) Why can’t we provide for our daily needs - homes, furnishings cars etc. without borrowing? 4) How much could prices fall and wages increase if businesses did not have to pay huge sums in interest payments which have to be added to the cost of goods and services they supply...? 5) How much could taxes be reduced and spending on public services such as health and education be increased if governments created money themselves instead of borrowing it at interest from private banks…?

It is simply the medium we use to exchange goods and services. * Without it, buying and selling would be impossible except by direct exchange. * Notes and coins are virtually worthless in their own right.

Anti Money Laundering is the term used by banks and other financial institutions to describe the variety of measures they have to combat this illegal activity and to prevent criminals from using individual banks and the financial system in general as the conduit for their Proceeds of Crime. In all major jurisdictions around the world, criminal legislation and regulation make it mandatory for banks and financial institutions to have arrangements to combat Money Laundering, with harsh criminal penalties for non-compliance. The vast majority of criminal dealings are done in cash. Criminals need ways to dispose of the cash and have it reappear as part of their wealth with as little chance as possible of it being tracked back to the cash element. Criminals have to use the...

...Without money now days, people would be miserable. Money solves lots of problems, and sometimes even causes the problems. We currently live in an economy in which we need to spend every dollar wisely. No one ever really wondered where money actually came from, how it all happened. How did a piece of paper gain the power to own a person’s soul? Before money, people bared. They simply exchanged a good service for another good service. For example, a bag of rice was exchanged for a bag of beans. Metal objects began being introduced as money in around 5000 B.C. The Lydian’s became the first in the Western world to make coins. Countries all around were beginning to use coins for different values. Metal was used because it was easy to deal with, work with and most importantly, could be recycled. It became easier for people to compare the cost of certain items people wanted using coins. The earliest known paper money started in China, in around AD 960. It became very common worldwide. Making money out of paper was an idea that was loved by all since it was of less value to make. Representative money was traded/exchanged for a certain amount of silver or gold depending on the value given. For most of the 19th and 20th centuries, the majority of currencies were based on money through the use of the gold standard. Soon, representative money moved on to be called Fiat money, which came from the Latin term ‘let it be done’. Money began to be given a value by government which...

...Money is one of the most important elements of economic science. It is truly a great invention for man. Every body is familiar with it and uses it in one form or the other. Although in final analysis, it is the real goods and services, which can satisfy our wants, but money is the intermediary. It is through money that we get access to goods produced by others. Money is running through economics system as blood is running in our body. In a way, money is much simple a nod common thing that even a child of two or three knows that money should be obtained and spent. But it is very difficult to define it. It may be defined as “Money is anything that we widely used in payments of debts” “Any thing which is widely accepted in payment for goods or in discharge of other kinds of obligations” (Robertson) “Money is the modern medium of exchange and the standard unit in which prices and debts are expressed.” (Samuelson) From the above definitions it is easy to conclude that money is any, material, which is commonly accepted and generally used as a medium if exchange for all types of transactions. Thus all kinds of currency notes and coins plus cheque deposits, etc can be regarded as money. FUNCTIONS The moneys primary functions are • Medium of exchange • Measure of value • And store of value MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE Money is used as an intermediary for trade, in order to avoid the inefficiencies of a barter system, which are sometimes referred to as the 'double...

..."Although money, fame, and power are all powerful motivators, our conscience can be far more compelling than any of these. The need to feel intrinsically good about what we have done is an innate part of human nature. Very often, we follow this instinct rather than give in to outside temptations. For example, the celebrity Jade Goody grew to fame by badmouthing people, swearing, and doing many other morally wrong things in order to win the reality TV show Big Brother. However, this spring she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. In the remaining weeks of her life, she was like a changed person: she spent her time raising awareness for cervical cancer, writing out wills in order to make sure that her two young sons would have enough money after she passed on, and so forth. Knowing that they are going to die can often change someone dramatically. In her final days, Jade's conscience motivated her to do several good things. History is strewn with the names of famous people who have given large donations to charity: Bill Gates, Andre Agassi, etc. Sometimes, these people may not only be motivated by sheer conscience, but also the public honour and fame of having a foundation, a charity, or a building named after them. But people also give anonymous donations - in 2009, an anonymous donor gave a million dollars to some American universities. As no-one knew who they were, money, fame, and power cannot possibly have been ther reason for their donation. Conscience and conscience...

The ‘Malaysian for Peace’ organization was established as an example for anti-war movement all around the world. This shows that we are peace loving. Malaysia too, is famous for its many unique cultures, as it is a multiracial country. There are different traditional games, dances, music, festivals and traditions for every different race. For example, the Malays have its famous ‘congkak’ and ‘gasing’ games, and its silat, Mak Yong and datun julud dances. The Indians have their Deepavali festival and the Chinese have their Lion Dance. Even though, there are many different races staying together, they have cooperated with each other in all aspects. Unlike some of the other countries, our races do not speak ill of other races’ traditions and culture. Each race even learns other races’ traditional games, dances and music. This improved their relationships between us. Tourists marked Malaysia as an interesting place to visit. They poured in from many different countries, especially from the European countries, to Malaysia. This is because they love the hot sun and the climate in Malaysia. Therefore, increasing my country’s income for supplying the needs of the country. This means that the country and the tourists gain benefits when the tourists come to Malaysia; the tourists learn new...

...A decrease in the level of a currency in a floating exchange rate system due to market forces. Currency depreciation can occur due to any number of reasons – economic fundamentals, interest rate differentials, political instability, risk aversion among investors and so on. Countries with weak economic fundamentals such as chronic current account deficits and high rates of inflation generally have depreciating currencies. Currency depreciation, if orderly and gradual, improves a nation’s export competitiveness and may improve its trade deficit over time. But abrupt and sizeable currency depreciation may scare foreign investors who fear the currency may fall further, and lead to them pulling portfolio investments out of the country, putting further downward pressure on the currency. 1. Reserves and Borrowing. If the value of an exchange rate is falling and the government wants to maintain its original value it can use its foreign exchange reserves – e.g. selling its dollars reserves and purchase pounds. This purchase of Pound sterling should increase its value. 2. Borrow The government can also borrow foreign currency from abroad to be able to buy sterling. 3. Changing interest rates (In UK this is now done by the MPC) higher interest rates will cause hot money flows and increase demand for sterling. Higher interest rates make it relatively more attractive to save in the UK. 4. Reduce Inflation * Through either tight fiscal or Monetary policy Aggregate......

Anti-Money Laundering Regulations and Its Impact on the Financial Service Industry

...Since the 1970s financial regulators around the world have increasingly focused on introducing Anti Money Laundering (“AML”) measures to fight organised crime and tax evasion. While several national and international acts have set a legal framework for enforcement, the terrorist attacks on 11th September 2001 (“9/11”) have established fighting terrorist financing as another major objective among regulators. In subsequent years AML measures have constantly been revised to adjust to the complexity of the international financial markets. As a result financial institutions have to cope with additional costs, more difficult customer relations and legal as well as geographical constraints. More comprehensive customer due diligence and complex mandatory monitoring system in particular cause difficulties for the banking sector. Consequently several big institutions such as HSBC and Citigroup have already been fined for failing to comply with AML laws. Regulations have changed the financial sector. This essay will analyse the impact of the 9/11 attacks on the regulatory framework as well as the effects of AML on the financial industry. Page 3 of 16 2. MEASURES TAKEN AML has been on the agenda of regulators well before 9/11. However, the actions of prosecutors were more focused on fighting organised crime, drug and weapon dealing as well as tax evasion. 9/11 shifted the attention towards fighting terrorism and initiated Counter Terrorist Financing (“CTF”) laws. It was not until 9...

...Question one: For most people money is a fundamental reason to work because eit is measurable and tangible. Hence, it becomes a motivator by default though it may not be the primary one for many employees. People are motivated by different things.Some employees have financial goals, others have professional goals while some have personal goals. The same incentives cannot work for all. This essay outlines some of the reasons why cash is not always a suitable motivator for excellent employees. Daniel Pink in his book “Drive”, convincingly argues that money does not motivate employees. Generally, people are motivated to work harder when they have the ability to work on their own terms. This is equally visible in Herzbergs two factor motivaton theory. In this theory, Herzberg points out that motivator factors such as the work itself,achievement, recognition, responsibility and opportunities for advancement and growth are the source of work satisfaction. Herzberg futher states that a salary is a hygiene factor and will not motivate people. Howerver, when the organisation links a monetary reward, such as a merit bonus to the recognition of good performance, it acts as a motivator. This is not to suggest that money doesn’t motivate, in fact, to underplay the importance of money and benefits as motivation for workers would be a mistake. Daniel Pink states in his book that employees expect to be paid fairly, but over-paying employers do little to motivate them to work harder...

... transferred to St. Petersburg in 1712, but Moscow's cultural and social life continued uninterrupted, and the city remained Russia's religious center. Built largely of wood until the 19th cent., Moscow suffered from numerous fires, the most notable of which occurred in the wake of Napoleon I's occupation in 1812. Count Rostopchin denied accusations that he had ordered the blaze ignited to drive out the French. The fire was most likely accidentally begun by French looters and was fanned by fanatic patriots among the few Russians who had remained behind when Napoleon entered the city. Whatever the cause, the fire sparked an anti-French uprising among the peasants, whose raids, along with the cruel winter, helped force Napoleon's retreat. Rebuilt, Moscow developed from the 1830s as a major textile and metallurgical center. During the 19th and early 20th cent. it was the focus of the zemstvo cooperative and Slavophile movements and became a principal center of the labor movement and of social democracy. In 1918 the Soviet government transferred the capital back to Moscow and fostered spectacular economic growth in the city, whose population doubled between 1926 and 1939 and again between 1939 and 1992. During World War II Moscow was the goal of a two-pronged German offensive. Although the spearheads of the German columns were stopped only 20 to 25 mi (32—40 km) from the city's center, Moscow suffered virtually no war damage. The city hosted the Olympic Games in......

Theory & Practice of Regulation of Anti-Money Laundering for Banks & Nonbanks

...Theory and Practice of Regulation of Anti-Money Laundering for Banks and NonBanks Hayford Kwesi Annor Manager, Risk & Compliance/AMLRO, ABii National Savings & Loans Ltd. Doctorate of finance student, SMC University, Switzerland. FAAFM, Ch.FE, ACCPA, MBA, BSc, HND h.k.annor@gmail.com Abstract A deregulated financial sector is free to accumulate and allocate funds from anywhere irrespective of the nature, form, intent and source. Without regulatory oversight, this poses zero risk to banks and nonbanks no matter how they finance the capital structure. In the real world, banking is an outcome of interactions between the regulator and the regulated. Regulatory consequences apply for failure to comply with the acceptable standards of best practices of banking regulation which include fines, sanctions, jail terms and revocation of the banking license for willful or non-willful noncompliance. The physical disposal of proceeds of funds’ from crime with aim of separating same, through creation of layers to disguise trails of the source and make it seem legitimate undermines the integrity of the financial system. It is required of the banking sector to build a comprehensive framework that identifies, assesses, monitors, mitigates and reports perceptions of suspicious activities of money launderers under the discipline of the regulator to avoid being sanction for the related offences. This paper reviews theory to link practice towards money laundering risk...
