Validating Financial Statement Comparability Assessment In Non-Profit Firms, Daniel Friesner, Andrew Brajcich Dec 2022

Validating Financial Statement Comparability Assessment In Non-Profit Firms, Daniel Friesner, Andrew Brajcich

The North American Accounting Studies

In a recent manuscript, Brajcich and Friesner (2022) proposed a new methodology to assess financial comparability in not-for-profit organizations. Their approach utilizes entropy-based information theory, and thus requires few prior assumptions about the formation and implications of financial statement comparability. This manuscript assesses the practical utility of the Brajcich and Friesner (2022) methodology by comparing its results to those generated by nonhierarchical cluster analysis. The analysis was conducted using balance sheets drawn from Washington State critical access hospitals in 2019, using a similar set of hospitals and an identical set of variables outlined in Brajcich and Friesner (2022).

Why Do Nations Fail In Developing Industries And Sustaining Productive Gdp? A Contrarian Perspective, Jay Nathan Dec 2022

Why Do Nations Fail In Developing Industries And Sustaining Productive Gdp? A Contrarian Perspective, Jay Nathan

Journal of Global Awareness

Few nations develop and sustain industries for quality and productive gross domestic product (GDP). Understandably, nations differ in their political, economic, natural resources, and technological strengths. Extracting natural resources and exporting them to industrially developed nations and corporations will not contribute to creating new wealth domestically, especially for nations at the bottom of the global industrial pyramid. Additionally, paying attention to the GDP breakdown of industries, and identifying value-adding industries for the future sustainable growth of a nation, is relevant. Instead of the status quo, following GDP growth for its own sake, the contrarian approach is to make strategic choices …
