1. Compute the differential impact capitalization versus expensing would have on net income for each year of the period

2. In which year, if any, will the total annual amount of amortization of past R&D will be at least equal to the R&D expense incurred during that year

In year 4, the total expense incurred is 100.00 and that is equal to the total annual amortization of R&D that has been capitalized until year 3.

3. What would you suggest to the managers of the company, with regard to possible modifications in their accounting policies? (For purposes of this question, ignore the revenue creation potential of R&D to emphasize the mechanical aspects of the procedure of R&D capitalization. In doing so, we implicitly acknowledge that Granados considers capitalization of R&D for the sole purpose of managing short-term earnings).

The first suggestion to the company would be that they complete all the criteria required to capitalize the operation. In general, what they have to prove in a reliable way is that in terms of technical aspects, the intangible asset will be used or sold. Also they need to prove the intention to finish the project, use it or sell it. Likewise, they have to indicate how this asset will generate future economic benefits (a market to the intangible asset or the result obtain of it.). Furthermore, they have to be able to measure reliably the expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development.

Motor Cycle Diaries Review

...The Motorcycle Diaries The Motorcycle Diaries was a telling tale about two men and their journey through South American. Unbeknownst too many viewers are the origins of a story that clings on to the legend of Che Guevara. Both Ernesto Guevara also referred to as Fuser, and his companion Alberto Granado set out on an adventure to see as much as Latin America as they possibly can. Fuser is about to get his medical degree while Alberto is a biochemist. These characters stop nothing short of exploiting their professions to garner sympathy or shelter throughout their journey. Fuser seems to be the more tamed of the too, he seems more focused with the well-being of the people he encounters (example the old man with the tumor), and does not use his profession to lie to people. Alberto on the other hand is more of a rumbustious character. He is loud unafraid to voice his opinion and is quick to challenge Fuser on what he believes to be a better way of handling situations. The turning point of the film is when they both encounter peasants who are being persecuted for their communistic beliefs. Fuser had a moment of realization from this and is concerned over the mistreatment of these people. Towards the films conclusion his trip to Peru enlightens his thinking and he acknowledges that the subdivision in a society are what are suppressing lepers. He makes his final journey through the river despite him having asthma. The story concludes with fuser admitting that he knew all along......

His journey metaphorically river marks a significant change in identity, the point at which you realize that what people need is not his scientific knowledge as a physician, but his desire for social change. Other particularly poignant moments come when Guevara and Granado refuse to wear rubber gloves to treat people with leprosy because it means a hierarchical division among themselves; At one point in the film, we see both Ernesto and Alberto meeting homeless communist couple is presented as a poor and struggling family.

Online communities is one of many new ways consumers are generating content and networking with other users. Successful businesses are aware and are capitalizing on the new means of spreading the word-of-mouth of their ventures. Social media facilitates the social interaction of consumers, leading to increased trust and intention to buy (Christensen, 2014).

Corporations are taking advantage of the advancement of the internet and social media.

Fiscal and Monetary Policies

...advantage to firms, and this will act as an incentive for them to hire more workers. The lowering of fund rate will also be an incentive to consumers thus they will increase their spending. When the recession hit America in 2008, the Fed gradually lowered target rate from 3.50 percent in January to less than 0.25 percent by December of the same year. The rate remained at that point to date. The federal rate were lowered to near zero, but the unemployment rate remain high. Therefore, the fed devised a way of lowering long-term interest rate to raise money supply, and the only way to achieve this way by adopting quantitative easing through a purchase of assets such as mortgage-backed securities and treasuries (Baldacci, Gupta, Mulas-Granados, & International Monetary Fund, 2009). Fiscal policy, on the other hand, is enacted by the Congress in consultation with White House by way of altering government tax rates and policies and also changing spending. At the time of economic crisis, fiscal policy is expansionary, that is, the government increases its spending and cut taxes with the aim of raising spending and offering incentives to firms to step up their production and employ more workers. Congress in early of 2009 passed $787 billion recovery plan budget to stimulate an economy that was in crisis, this law adopted by the Congress was dubbed Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Broome, 2015). That act was a temporary measure by the Congress to rescue American economy from......
