...CHAPTER ONE: GLOBALIZATION AND INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS I. INTRODUCTION As people, firms, and other organizations have expanded their access to resources, goods, services, and markets across wider geographical areas, they have also become more deeply affected (positively and negatively) by conditions outside their home countries. Globalization refers to the broadening set of interdependent relationships among people from different parts of a world that happens to be divided into nations. A. What is International Business? International business involves all commercial transactions—private and governmental—between parties of two or more countries. Global events and competition affect almost all firms—large or small. However, the international environment is more complex and diverse than a firm’s domestic environment. II. THE FORCES DRIVING GLOBALIZATION Globalization is a difficult concept to measure. Currently, about 25 percent of world production is sold outside of its country of origin, restrictions on imports continue to decline, the foreign ownership of assets as a percent of world production continues to increase, and world trade continues to grow more rapidly than world production. Recessionary contraction in recent years has at least temporarily reversed this trend. That said, on a value basis, only a few countries (mainly very small nations) either sell more than half of their production abroad or source more than half of their consumption from foreign countries.......

Chapter 2 AP21 When is revenue recognized by a corporation? When the corporation designs a project. When the corporation mass produces a product. When the customer orders a product. When the product is delivered to the customer and the customer promises to pay When the customer fulfills his promise in item #d above by paying the cash to the corporation. When the corporation receives a cash deposit from a customer for a product to be delivered next month. When the right of return expires. The corporation sells thousands of small lawn mowers. Answer d. When the product is delivered to the customer and the customer promises to pay Explanation: The FASB’s definition of a revenue is “Inflows or other enhancements of assets of an entity or settlements of its liabilities during a period from delivering or producing goods, rendering services, or other activities that constitute the entity's ongoing major or central operations.” A common-sense explanation is that revenue is recognized when it is “earned and receivable.” Delivery is normally the time period in which revenue is recognized. There are three exceptions. If the collection of cash is highly uncertain, revenue is recorded at the time cash is received. If the level of returns is highly uncertain, revenue is recognized when the right to......

...Chapter 2/Fundamental Economic Concepts Chapter 2 Fundamental Economic Concepts Solutions to Exercises 1. The number of checked bags should fall, as individuals internalize the external cost of added weight. However, the average weight should rise, as those checking bags would in all likelihood pack as much as possible to make up for the cost. 2. The wage in the market for oil spill cleanup efforts should rise, thanks to an increase in demand for labor. The wage in the market for similarly-skilled labor should also fall, as the relevant labor supply falls in response to the previous increase in wage. We would expect an increase in migration, as long as the wage of the home market was less than the wage that could be received in the Gulf region. 3. Projects A, C, G and B require a total of $875 million in investment. Project B, the lowest return project of this group is expected to generate an 18 percent rate of return. Ajax can raise up to $1,050 million, with the highest cost being 18 percent for the last $200 million. If Ajax were to choose any project beyond A, C, G, and Bsuch as project D (the next best project after B)that project would generate a marginal rate of return (16 percent), which is less than the marginal cost of funds needed to finance it, in this case 18 percent for the last $200 million up to a total of $1,050. Thus, the optimal capital budget is to invest in projects A, C, G, B, for a total of $875 million. 4. This question examines expected......

...following questions and problems from Chapter 2. Please submit your complete assignment in the course room by the due date. Chapter 2 Problems 2-1) An investor recently purchased a corporate bond that yields 9%. The investor is in the 36% combined federal and state tax bracket. What is the bond’s after-tax yield? 9% (1-T) = 9%(1-.36) =5.76% 2-2) Corporate bonds issued by Johnson Corporation currently yield 8%. Municipal bonds of equal risk currently yield 6%. At what tax rate would an investor be indifferent between these two bonds? 8% (1-T) + after tax corporate yield 6% - municipal tax exempt yield 8%(1-T) = 6% 8-8T+66 2=8t T=2/8 or 25% 2-7) The Talley Corporation had a taxable income of $365,000 from operations after all operating costs but before (1) interest charges of $50,000, (2) dividends received of $15,000, (3) dividends paid of $25,000, and (4) income taxes.

Income after operating costs: $365,000.00 Less: Interest Expense -$50,000.00 Plus: Taxable Dividends Received $4,500.00 Only 30% of the $15,000 in dividends are taxable. Taxable Income: $319,500.00 $319,500 falls into the $100,000 to $335,000 bracket so the corporate tax would be: $22,250 + .39 ($319,500 - $100,000) Tax Liability = $107,855.00 Average Tax Rate = $107,855/$319,500 = 33.76% 2-9) The Shrieves Corporation has......

Difference and similarities with the previous studies are presented in this chapter. The following researches and studies greatly influence on the conduct of this study; the researchers have made consideration in drawing the final conclusion in the study. Foreign Literature Facebook is an evolutionary technology of the 21st century that changed social relationships, provides opportunity for individuals to share their ideas and opinions, and establishes and maintains relationships with others.

...Chapter 2, Section 3 Homework Problems Part A 1. (a) § 721 does not apply to Charlie’s contribution of services because § 721 only applies to property exchanged for an interest in the partnership. Charlie must recognize compensation for services under § 61(a)(1). Since Charlie has no risk of forfeiture, Charlie includes the compensation upon receipt of the interest under § 83. The amount included in gross income is FMV of $400K. Since Charlie contributed no other money or property to obtain his partnership interest, his basis in partnership interest is the amount included in income, $400K. Treas. Reg. § 1.722-1. The partnership will have a § 162 deduction for the amount of compensation paid and as such will reduce Avery and Blair’s basis by $200k each. (b) U.S. v. Frazell held that the incoming partner will recognize ordinary income to the extent that the partnership interest was received for exchange of the services, but § 721 applies to the portion that was contributed for property. Since we are not given the value of the services and property (building plans), we can know ascertain the amount of his contribution that would be allocated to the services and what amount would qualify for non-recognition. Charlie’s partnership interest after the exchange would be a capital asset. (c) In this case, Charlie has a substantial risk of forfeiture under § 83(a) and will be taxable on any increase of the value of the partnership interest at the time the partnership interest......
