Most banks have policies that allow exceptions for customers with good loan histories and reputations. An exception might be appropriate in this case if the loan applicant can explain how and how quickly the new equipment will increase income. The new equipment will increase depreciation expense, so at the same level of revenue the company must reduce costs by at least $184,615 (3.51%) plus the net increase in depreciation. This required expense reduction is shown below with some more-or-less reasonable assumptions. This estimate also is conservative because the cost of new equipment was not included in total assets.
The company's growth led the board of directors to expand the group of companies it uses to gauge the adequacy of its executive compensation and said it increased Grant's annual salary 18 percent to $1.36 million for 2008.” Although Grant “earned” is compensation by leading the company to an increase in sales, I am not sure if his executive compensation was equal to the job he did.

This is due to the fact that the enrollment of students at Normandale Community College has increased 10% since last year. Normandale is using the tactic of ‘education comes first’, without enough parking spaces students would have trouble getting to school on time and would also get students frustrated. Also, students have been complaining to Normandale Administrators to handle the parking situation and make it easier for them to find a parking lot.
The New York Times claimed that, “When immigrants do take jobs, they’re hard workers” (Preston and Connelly a1). Therefore, it greatly contributes to America’s retirement system. The presence of immigrants also contributes to America’s long term population growth, necessary to stabilize the overall retirement fund. The Springer Science and Business Media’s journal states that some other countries in the world suffer from the labor shortages and a demographic crunch, in which a very small number of workers will be expected to pay the retirement and health care for elderly people (Gold 409). The ratio of retired people to workers is expected to dramatically increase in the coming decades, which would result in significant changes in the Security System of America’s retirement money.
