We would consider the following fiscal policies: * Reduction of defense expenditure. Taking a look at Exhibit 7 we see that this % has been rising in the last 13 years. Try to reduce this % increasing the exports of defense material to its allies. USA should try to reduce the amount of money spent in defense selling more material to the allies that would be considered as exports helping the trade balance. * Promote middle class.
Premier Investments Ltd dropped its current ratios sharply from 4.27 to 1.74. That indicates Premier Investments Ltd transferred its current assets to noncurrent assets or it got more current liabilities. However, it is still has less current liabilities covered it assets compared with David Jones Ltd. So David Jones Ltd needs to make a financial plan to meet the coming current liabilities, or they may get a financial crisis. Quick ratio Current ratio measures the current assets to be turned into cash to meet its debts in one year.
What would happen if B.E. wasn’t able to sell all of the 30,000,000 units? They would get stockpiled into ending inventory and allocated expense which would increase costs of goods sold and therefore net income. Since the presidents bonus is based off of net income and the amount he can
With everything that has been reviewed, I would recommend that CSI lease vs buying right now. The financial returns for the lease option are that it has a higher annual payment and a lower after tax cash flow, but does free up some instant cash and relieves CSI from owner responsibilities on the building. Leasing will also let CSI build up capital to do the end of term buy option without having to have an additional 200,000 of working capital on hand for the bank and will reduce the need for a loan and credit mark. The second option is to
With reference to extract one, assess the likely effect of a fall in the sterling exchange rate on the UK’s deficit in the trade of goods and services. (12 marks) A fall in the exchange rate of 25% means the pound becomes weaker, this means imports are more expensive, and exports are cheaper. As a result of this, this may mean a large increase in demand for exports and a considerable decrease in demand for imports, therefore decreasing the deficit of the balance of payments in the UK as predicted. However, if the goods we are importing and exporting are inelastic, meaning they have a less than proportional response to price, an increase in the price of imports, and a decrease in the price of exports may not have a great effect on the trade of goods and services and so therefore not improve on the deficit the UK holds. As stated in extract 1, it tells us that the goods we import are not made in the UK and so makes it impossible to replace the imports, therefore meaning that we still have to import goods, despite the high prices due to the low exchange rate of sterling.
Depreciation affects cash flow by reducing the amount of cash a business must pay in income taxes. 3. Calculate the current and quick ratios based on the projected balance sheet and income statement data. What can you say about the company’s liquidity position in 2013? AS the current and quick ratios both went down over the past year, I am concerned that the company liabilities may be rising faster than assets and we may not be able to liquidate assets quickly enough to cover debt, if necessary.
This leads to less tax paid by the industry and more unemployment insurance payouts, both of which affect fiscal policy. This impact was severe during the financial crisis of 2018, as both Ford and Nissan had to be rescued by government bailouts. These bailouts became necessary to protect the millions of jobs directly and indirectly dependent on the industry. With Chryslers’ return to the capital markets in 2020, taxpayers may get most of their bailout money
Save for emergency funds: cover unexpected expenses such as a. sudden job or income loss b. medical emergency c. financial crisis d. You all know that the main cause of the 2008 financial crisis was the increase in the default of loan mortgages made to borrowers with poor credit ratings, but according to a study followed by The University of Harvard, called The State of the Nation’s Housing, “if there would have been a bigger saving money culture and usage, the crisis could have been two times smaller.” 2. Save for retirement: put money to work for you, whenever you retire, you will have funds to cover your expenses. 3 Save for sinking funds: money set aside for a. future repairs b. Improvements on your possessions 4. Save for education: a. to earn your masters
Describe the Federal Reserve’s assessment of the current economic activity and financial markets. The levels of uncertainty associated the projections for economic growth and inflation is considered greater than the levels that have been consistent over the past 20 years. The contributing factors for this assessment include the severity of the recent recession, the uncertain effects of the current stance of monetary policy, uncertainty about the direction of fiscal policy, and structural dislocations in the labor market (Monetary Policy Report, 2011). The most frequently cited downside risks included a potential for a large negative effect on consumer spending from higher food and energy prices, a weaker labor market, falling house prices,
It turns out that, while debt reduces a company’s tax liability because interest payments are deductible expenses, increasing amounts of debt raise both the cost of equity capital and the interest rate on debt because of the increasing probability of bankruptcy. In other words, higher amounts of debt raise the financial risk of a company, and this risk is reflected on the cost of all the types of capital the company uses. As such, the relationship between financial leverage and WACC is not a straight line, but more of a U-shaped curve, with a minimum WACC between the extremes of debt utilization. Apart from the risk associated with a firm’s fundamental
