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.

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).

Since its inception in the United States in the 1930s, compliance with the use tax has been close to zero.

The Global Mindset Of Accounting Educators - A National Study, Jill Christopher, Danielle Foster, Chao Wen, Perry Haan

Northeastern Pennsylvania's Forgotten Labor Massacre: Analysis Pf The English Language Record Of The Lattimer Massacre, Jamie C. Costello

Graduate Masters Theses

The Lattimer Massacre occurred on September 10, 1897, in a small anthracite mining town in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Nineteen strikers died at the scene and dozens more were horrifically wounded. Despite the outraged shock of the community clamoring for justice which led to a murder trial that made international headlines, the Lattimer Massacre faded from local and national memory in the following decades. A combination of lingering nativist prejudice curated by …

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 …
