Growing Up Financially Literate: A Lifelong Curriculum, Amanda J. Brown 2010 Western Kentucky University

Growing Up Financially Literate: A Lifelong Curriculum, Amanda J. Brown

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

This work ventures to find a solution to one source of economic instability: financial illiteracy. The inability to manage money, caused by a lack of education, has led to poor decision making. These bad decisions can lead to a number of financial hardships, as well as emotional and physical problems. Better education can combat all of these symptoms and lead to a healthier financial future. Growing Up Financially Literate attempts to help close the curriculum gap surrounding financial literacy by recognizing that the gap does not only exist in a single age group. Financial education cannot stop with any one ...


Assessment Of The 'Accounting Cycle': Test Tools For The Accounting Professor, Nicole M. Swanson 2010 Western Kentucky University

Assessment Of The 'Accounting Cycle': Test Tools For The Accounting Professor, Nicole M. Swanson

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

The two main goals of this thesis are to provide an assessment tool for accounting professors as well as a learning tool for students to gain a better understanding of the accounting cycle. Many students coming out of the basic accounting courses have a pretty good understanding of the different parts of the accounting cycle, but few have a solid understanding of the bigger picture and how each part fits together. I believe this is partly due to the fact that students in 200 level courses are never required to complete the accounting cycle from beginning to end. As such ...

Dysfunctional Audit Behaviour: An Exploratory Study In Malaysia, Halil Paino, Zubaidah Ismail, Malcolm Smith

ECU Publications Pre. 2011

The quality of the opinion provided by audit firms is an important determinant of their long-term survival, but audit quality is difficult to gauge, which makes it particularly sensitive to the behaviour of the individuals who carry on audit work. This paper seeks to identify the incidence of dysfunctional audit behaviours and audit quality reduction behaviours, actions taken by an auditor during engagement that reduce evidence-gathering effectiveness. The paper is based on a survey of 244 auditors working in small/medium and big audit firms in Malaysia. The paper identifies key variables leading to dysfunctional audit behaviour. The paper is ...


Reversion Of Rnoa And Its Components, Robert Halsey 2010 Babson College

Reversion Of Rnoa And Its Components, Robert Halsey

Babson Faculty Research Fund Working Papers

Prior research documents the reversion to a mean value over time of returns on assets and equity and increasing rates of reversion for firms that are farther from the mean and for poorly performing firms. Researchers have also begun to explore factors that may have predictive ability for expected reversion, such as changes in the profit margin and asset turnover, in an effort to increase forecasting accuracy. My study adds to this line of research and provides a comprehensive investigation of the reversion characteristics of the components of both the numerator and the denominator of the returns ratio. I find ...


Adjusted Earnings: An Initial Investigation Of Eps Disclosures In Annual Reports, Jennifer L. Harrison, Anja Morton 2010 Southern Cross University

Adjusted Earnings: An Initial Investigation Of Eps Disclosures In Annual Reports, Jennifer L. Harrison, Anja Morton

Southern Cross Business School

In the last decade an increasing number of companies have been reporting adjusted (or nonstatutory) earnings in their press releases. However, there has been relatively little systematic study of adjusted earnings disclosures in annual reports, despite the importance of annual reports as corporate communication devices. This study documents Australian listed company voluntary disclosures of earnings per share (EPS) in their annual reports and examines the statutory nature of those disclosures. Nearly one third of these disclosures are found to be based on adjusted earnings but generally little information is provided on what adjustments were made. A majority of these adjusted ...


Women Accountants In The 1880 Us Federal Census: A Genealogical Analysis, Diane H. Roberts 2010 University of San Francisco

Women Accountants In The 1880 Us Federal Census: A Genealogical Analysis, Diane H. Roberts

Accounting

This historical census micro-data project examines the characteristics of women who self report as accountants in the 1880 US Federal Census. Using the data provided by the actual Census forms the demographic, familial, and economic characteristics of women accountants are examined and found to be quite different from the experience of accountants overall found by Lee [2007]. A fairly clear picture of a typical 1880 female accountant emerged and analysis of their multi-generational families gave insight into the changing occupational landscape of the period. Almost all women accountants were US born of US born parents and most did not migrate ...

Il Controllo Dei Costi Non Strategici Come Contributo Al Miglioramento Della Performance Aziendale, selena aureli, antonio rizzuto 2009 Urbino University

Il Controllo Dei Costi Non Strategici Come Contributo Al Miglioramento Della Performance Aziendale, Selena Aureli, Antonio Rizzuto

selena aureli

This article analyzes the ways firms can monitor non-strategic costs. Great attention is devoted to side cost centres, where accountants allocate costs for generic goods and services that are largely provided by external suppliers and can be defined as non-strategic costs. The article starts with a review of the literature, then we propose the adoption of a cost-reduction program specific for non-strategic costs. Such a program can be used together or as an alternative to traditional control systems usually devoted to monitor and guide the company as a whole. This approach is pragmatic and aims to help firms to obtain ...

Claudia J. Dold

The connection between weather-related disasters and mental health is bound up in treatment, both acute and long-term, of suddenly vulnerable populations, whether they are in-place survivors, displaced persons, or refugees. The Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI) Research Library/ University of South Florida Library System has undertaken a collection focus on disaster mental health. We have re-examined the traditional models of collection development and chosen instead to frame our collection development initiative around an ‘all hazards’ model, that allows us to proceed within both a national and international framework. Our model, conceptualized in a matrix of domains ...
