1. Auditing neither creates goods nor adds utility to existing goods and therefore does not add value to business. Auditing exists only because it has been legally mandated.

Auditing exists because it is needed by the company. It is beneficial to users who need assurance if their financial statements reflect economic conditions that occurred in a period. Without reliable information, companies might make less effective decisions which are risky for the value of business. It may neither create goods nor add utility to goods but it adds value to business because it is a source of information for a business’ decisions.

2. The failure of the public accounting profession to warn us of the problems that existed in the economy is an example of a profession not adding utility to society.

Accounting records, classifies, and summarizes economic events to provide financial information for decision making. It does not study the problems in the economy but it helps management to make effective decisions despite economic problems. That way, accounting profession is an added utility to society.

3. The only reason I would hire an auditor is with the expectation that the auditor search for and find any fraud that might exist within my company. Searching for fraud should be the primary focus of an audit.

Fraud involves deception that can result to material misstatements of financial information and is not good for the users and a company’s future. But auditing does not only find frauds existing in a company but it also gives assurance to intended users whether financial statement are reliable, whether the operations are effective and efficient or whether the entity adheres to government laws and regulations. These assurances are relevant to the decision makers of a company.

4. Auditors cannot legitimately serve the ‘user’ public because they are effectively hired

...Costa Coffee, the UK’s largest and fastest growing coffee shop, plans to convert its entire coffee supply to sustainably grown beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms by 2010. As a first step, from September 2008 at least 30% of Costa’s unique Mocha Italia blend, which forms the base of its coffee drinks, will come from Rainforest Alliance Certified sources, equal to about 1000 tonnes of green coffee over the course of a year. Only farms that meet specific standards balancing all aspects of production, including protecting the environment, the rights and welfare of workers and the interest of coffee-growing communities are awarded certification. The standards were developed by the Rainforest Alliance, an independent, international environment organisation, and other conservation groups that comprise the Sustainable Agriculture Network. And while UK consumers will be among the first to see the difference in store the change will have an international impact across Costa’s 1000 stores worldwide. Costa Coffee’s Marketing Director, David Hutchinson said: “Costa is at the beginning of a journey towards greater sustainability in its business. We know it will take time to convert our supply base to certified sustainable sources but we believe it’s an investment that is right for our business, right for the coffee industry as a whole and we believe it’s a journey our customers will want to be part of. “Costa’s success is built on a commitment to quality,...

Tea Unilever

...Samir Lakhani Stephen Martinek Mahek Parikh Unilever Group Submission Unilever is a consumer goods company that has a variety of product types to serve consumers across the globe. For this case, Unilever’s tea brand, Lipton, is focused on sustainability for the production of their tea production. Sustainability is defined as a method of using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged. In other words, it is focusing on a production method that is sustainable long-term. Currently, Unilever has about 25% of their tea from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, which brought forward gains in the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of tea production. It was one of the few brands of tea that was able to have ethical practices while growing beyond a niche market into a larger market share. However, Unilever is looking to source 100% of its agricultural raw materials sustainably (Rainforest Alliance certified) by the year of 2020. This is a lofty and ambitious goal that requires a supply chain transformation, as nearly 8 million tons of commodities across 50 different crops are required for production. There are multiple reasons for this action: to have ethical production practices, to make their brand favorable to customers, and to increase the longevity of their farms. However, they will bear costs of having to increase the market price and convincing their suppliers to be certified. For example, the firm...

Analysis on Uniliver Case: Sustainable Tea

...Why did Unilever commit to sustainable source for its tea? First of all, there is a companywide strategy to launch a new “Sustainable Living Plan”. This plan includes goals to source 100% of agricultural raw materials sustainably by 2020. According to Unilever CEO Paul Polman, he believed that these goals would drive savings, product innovation and differentiation across the company’s portfolio. By committing to this plan, Unilever ensures to be more competitive in the future. If this transformation did not start, they would not be able to get the quality and quantity of the tea they need for their products. To adopt this plan Unilever faced two major issues. The first one was to start the transformation on the supply chain, due to the fact that the current supply chain does not yet comply with the “Sustainable Living Plan”. The alignment of the supply chain includes certification of tea production. In order to do that, Unilever worked with local NGOs and Kenyan Tea Development Agency (KTDA). Those parties ensure that the smallholders get educated and certified on sustainable agriculture. This approach makes sure that Unilever’s own production in Kenya and Tanzania as well as the small farmers in East Africa implement the new guidelines and recommendations and have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The second issue was how to address this internal commitment to consumers. The global brand director for Lipton Tea Michiel Leijnse, believed that Western consumers had become...

...death penalty on the basis of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR),4 to which the United States is a party. Significantly, Valdez made the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals one of the first state courts to address Article 36 since the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decided Germany v. United States of America (LaGrand),5 in which the ICJ interpreted the controversial provision.     Briefly stated, Article 36 grants foreign nationals the right to contact their consulate if they are arrested or detained in a foreign country.6 Such notification allows the consulate to provide legal assistance to the foreign national, who may speak another language or be unfamiliar with the foreign nation's legal system. As might be expected, local authorities sometimes fail to comply with Article 36. In the United States, such failures have prompted foreign nationals to file appeals based on what they consider to be a judicially enforceable right created by Article 36. However, U.S. courts have dismissed such appeals on the basis that Article 36 fails to create an individual, [*pg 500] judicially enforceable right.7 Furthermore, procedural default rules often prevent courts from reviewing Article 36 claims because the foreign national fails to raise the issue at the trial level or in prior appeals.8 An obvious “catch- 22” results: foreign nationals cannot raise timely Article 36 claims if they are not notified of their Article 36 rights until...

...various educational apps that can help students learn. However it is very important to choose and decide what apps are most appropriate for our students and also what will help them learn best. Finding the right apps can be a daunting task for busy teachers (Liz Keren Kolb, pg.36). Some of the important factors teachers should be looking for in an app are, curriculum connection, age appropriate, type of skills, collaboration, tech skills, ethnics and safety, and levels. There will be many times we predict that an app will be fun and engaging just because of the way it looks, but that does not necessarily it will meet our classroom academic standards or goals. It is also important to test drive the app to see if it is age appropriate for the students. Many apps claim that they can adjust to the age level and meet students at their proximal development; nevertheless it is always crucial to check (Liz Keren Kolb, pg. 36). Another factor to focus on is the types of skills one will need to use the app. Also if you are looking for an app for students to collaborate we should see if the app gives users the opportunity to create knowledge together rather than just comment on each other’s work (Liz Keren Kolb, pg. 36). Most importantly the app should provide safeguards for privacy. Apps should remind students about online privacy when posting conversations or comments. Lastly another vital issue to be looking for in these apps is if the apps have different levels students can achieve with...
