If the sales outlook for the coming three years was only 20,000,000 and B.E. continued producing at the rate of 30,000,000 units, a total of 10,000,000 units would be dumped into ending inventory at the end of each year once again reducing costs of goods sold and falsely increasing income. By the end of year 2013, B.E. Company would have 35,000,000 units sitting in ending inventory taking up space and costing money to store. Once again if the president’s bonus is based off of net income, this situation is the most favorable for a high paying bonus and encourages stockpiling inventory to inflate net income.

According to Trends in College Spending, a study done by the delta cost project, "Enrollment in U.S. postsecondary institutions totaled almost 18.6 million students in the 2008 academic year, a nearly 26 percent increase over the ten-year period beginning in 1998." The increase in demand for a college education has directly influenced college costs. It's simple economics, when demand goes up the price of the product being demanded will increase. The power lies on the side of the universities to determine whether their prices will rise or fall. Schools know that the quickest way to an elightened future is through their doors.
,Sarah L. G January 6, 2013 Written Assignment #1 1. A) $1,000 with 5% interest after 10 years gives you $1,628. Therefore, you would gain $628 in interest.

I bring more than 20 years of technical repair and sales skills to the table and am investing $60,000 personally to start this business. I anticipate being able to repay my loan to the company beginning in August 1999. So as to ensure the success of the new location and the business I will hire a marketing manager who will be in charge of all the marketing of the two locations.
