MBA 1. Is Warren Buffett’s decision to bet against the dollar a good one? Why or why not?

Yes Warren Buffett’s decision to be against thedollar is a good one. Buffett is betting that American trade deficit will not be restored and the country’s practice of borrowing from abroad to pay for the current goods and services will not stop. The USA borrows from abroad to finance its trade deficit, on top of that the USA government spends more money than it takes from taxes. The budget deficit increases the gap between country’s national savings and national income and and also widens the deficit in the current account by necessitating the country to borrow more money from other foreign countries. This widened current deficit puts strain on the USA currency in the financial markets. If Americans are going to buy inexpensive imported goods and the USA government has a budget shortage, I think Warren Buffett is making a fantastic move by betting against the dollar. Between 2002 and 2007 the dollar has fallen by 40 percent.

2. Why has the United States developed such large current account deficits?

I and a lot of people believe the United States has developed such a large current account deficit is the trade deficit. The USA is importing more goods and services more than it exports so it has held trade deficit since the late 1960s and this trade deficit has been mushrooming at an unbelievable rate since 1997. The increasing oil prices in the last few years has helped increased the current account deficit too. Another reason for the current account deficit could be attributed to the budget deficit. In almost every year the government cuts taxes and increases spending. The United States had a surplus of $127 billion in 2001 and anticipated to have a budget surplus for a while. All the surplus disappeared as sthe USA approved a tax cut during President Bush’s…...

Mba Rational

...MBA Rational MGT/521 10/06/2012 Richard Bowman Abstract In this paper the subject to address are the objections to obtain an MBA and argue the points with reason to obtain an MBA. The three main objections to entering an MBA program are: 1) Cost 2) Time and effort required 3) Job availability in the current economic slowdown. Each argument against obtaining an MBA is countered with evidence that supports reasoning to obtain an MBA at almost any time, personal situation or career position. MBA Rational While an MBA might improve your quantitative, presentation, and communication skills, it might even get you thinking about ethics and strategy. However, one to two years of case studies aren’t going to turn you into a leader if you weren’t born one. There’s no learning charisma, persuasiveness, elegance, or gut instinct. This is why an MBA is no guarantee of advancement or even a job. Many MBAs find that they are not advancing and that, even in some circumstances, that they cannot find a job at all. This can be a very unfortunate situation, and yet it is important to acknowledge as a possibility for anyone going into an MBA program. This is particularly true in a down economy. Quitting your job to get an MBA, therefore, has risks that are important to acknowledge. Throughout my career, I've been in mainly in the financial services. My Bachelor's is in Business Management. I enjoy the creativity and personal interaction that the industry offers;......

Compunere Cu Titlul - Limba Româna Este Patria Mea

...visele mele sunt în limba română. Totul în viața mea se învârte în jurul acestei limbi, pe care nu doar că o vorbesc și o înțeleg, dar care a devenit o parte din mine, fără de care nu mă pot imagina. Privind toate acestea nu e prea mult dacă spun că eu sunt român pentru că vorbesc românește. Nici măcar nu contează dacă locuiesc sau nu în România. România, ca spațiu geografic în care s-a cristalizat poporul român, popor care a dat naștere limbii române, este foarte importantă. Fără România limba română nu ar fi existat. Dar odată fundamentată, limba română se ridică deasupra teritoriului geografic. Limba română devine moștenirea poporului român, transmisă prin viu grai sau prin scris tuturor urmașilor. În felul acesta, oriunde m-aș afla pe acest glob pământesc sau de ce nu chiar în afara acestei planete, eu, la fel ca ceilalți oameni care vorbim limba română suntem români. Așa cum un melc își duce în spate propria cochilie, fiind peste tot și în orice moment acasă, tot așa și eu port cu mine propria-mi casă - limba română. Dacă în primii ani de viață, limba română a fost doar un instrument cu ajutorul căruia am interacționat cu ceilalți oameni din jurul meu, odată cu trecerea timpului a devenit patria mea. Ea este locul comun în care mă pot înțelege cu părinții, frații și cunoscuții mei. Pe teritoriul patriei mele, format din cuvintele limbii române știu cel mai bine să simt, să iubesc, să visez, să cred și să mă rog. Fără patria mea, limba română, m-aș simți fără......

...Ms. Tracie Jones Intro to College Writing 100 February 25, 2009 My Educational Experience As a freshman in college, I have had numerous experiences with education. Although some of my educational experiences have been negative most of them to date have been positive and very beneficial to me as a student. Many of my educational experiences have been from various sources. Such as, educational videos, the news, lectures, and many other sources. An educational experience I have encountered is watching Bill Nye the Science Guy videos in my 7th grade earth science class. My class would watch a video on what topic we were discussing that week in class. These videos are very easy to understand and informational. Watching the videos would give me a better understanding about the material we were going over. Over the years I have learned that I learn and remember things better by seeing them on an educational video rather that just listening to the teacher lecture. Watching videos in 7th grade was an immense benefit to my learning. In my college experience I haven’t watched any educational videos to help my learning and understanding of the material. The classes I have been enrolled in, the professors lecture the material and my fellow students and I take notes on the lecture. In America today, many children sit in front of the television and watch it for hours at a time. Thus, watching the videos at school would keep them more interested in the material because......

Mea Heat Exchanger Design

...designed in this project is lean/rich MEA heat exchanger E-114. This heat exchanger is a counter flow shell and tube heat exchanger and is designed to heat up the rich MEA stream flowing from the CO2 absorber to the stripper. The principle that is applied is heat exchange between cold stream and hot stream which in this case the heat energy is transferred from the lean MEA stream to the rich MEA stream. Apart from this, the chemical engineering design for this heat exchanger includes the determination of its dimensions and heat exchange coefficient as well as pressure drop. The mechanical design covers the design of pressure vessel, head, supports and piping. In addition, the operating design which includes the commissioning, start-up, shutdown and maintenance procedures, process control, and HAZOP study is considered. 2.0 Process Description Figure 2.1 Schematic of rich/lean MEA heat exchange process flow sheet The lean/rich MEA heat exchange process is presented in Figure 2.1. The MEA-2 stream containing rich CO2 is flowing from CO2 absorber and enters the heat exchanger to be heated up from 61°C to 80°C by MEA-7 before entering the stripper. The MEA-7 is then cooled down from 105°C to 84°C when pass through the heat exchanger and recycle back to the CO2 absorber. The cold stream in this case is MEA-2 and MEA-3 while the hot stream is MEA-7 and MEA-8. 3.0 Chemical Engineering Design 3.1 Design Methodology The rich/lean MEA heat exchanger is a counter flow......

Mba Pursuit

...Pursuit of an MBA Marvin Conway MGT/521 1 April 2010 Construct and Support an Argument Decision to Pursue an MBA To some, pursuing higher education is a waste of money and time. Others, such as me, may argue that it is an accomplishment and the benefits from acquiring a degree are worth the efforts and hard work. With the current national unemployment rate at 9.7% (US Department of Labor, Feb 2010) and steadily rising, it seems improbable that finding that “ideal” job is likely. During these tough economic times, I find myself with a bachelor’s degree at a low paying job with a child to take care of. It is because of this situation that I have chosen to pursue a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) degree with an emphasis in Accounting; receiving higher education could be the answer to my problem. According to the job outlook by education 2006-16 (Occupational Outlook Quarterly), increased earnings and lower rates of unemployment are trends associated with additional levels of education (Liming & Wolf, 2008). After taking the Jungian 16-Type Personality Self-Assessment test, scoring ISTJ, I found that my results support my decision to pursue my MBA with an emphasis in Accounting. A person scoring ISTJ are found to be organized, compulsive, private, trustworthy, and practical people. Their possible career choices are office manager, accountant, business manager, tax agent, and public servant (Pearson Prentice Hall, 2007). I recognize that I......

The-Mba-Decision

...THE MBA DECISION Ben Bates graduated from college six years ago with a finance undergraduate degree. Since graduation, he has been employed in the finance department at East Coast Yachts. Although he is satisfied with his current job, his goal is to become an investment banker. He feels that an MBA degree would allow him to achieve this goal. After examining schools, he has narrowed his choice to either Wilton University or Mount Perry College. Although internships are encouraged by both schools, to get class credit for the internship, no salary can be paid. Other than internships, neither schools will allow its students to work while enrolled in its MBA program. Ben’s annual salary at East Coast Yachts is $50,000 per year, and his salary is expected to increase at 3 percent per year until retirement. He is currently 28 years old and expects to work for 40 more years. His current job includes a fully paid health insurance plan, and his current average tax rate is 26 per- cent. Ben has a savings account with enough money to cover the entire cost of his MBA program. The Ritter College of Business at Wilton University is one of the top MBA programs in the country. The MBA degree requires two years of full-time enrollment at the university. The annual tuition is $65,000, payable at the beginning of each school year. Books and other supplies are estimated to cost $2,500 per year. Ben expects that after graduation from Wilton, he will receive a job offer for about $90,000 per......

...Keeping jokes apart, this is for all MBA-Freshers who are expecting big bucks after completing their MBA. “Dreaming Big” is not an issue but achieving that dream always starts with small steps. It is said that “Rome was not built in a day” similarly you can’t demand higher salaries because you are a MBA. What if you are a MBA? Are you having anything else to boast, about which the corporate world would appreciate. If yes, then go out and shout “I am having this X thing which could meet Y Company’s expectations and for the same reason, I should get salary of ` Z”. The point is to think big but build small, something you can be proud of. If you don’t have the things to boast about try for Plan B. Make your career plan in such a way that you start with small company with small salary learn lots many things over there of-course at the Company’s cost, look out for options and in next couple of years take a big leap. Being a Placement Officer with KSMCS, I hear lot many times that students are saying; that I am having 2 years of work-experience and my last salary was ` 20K. So they must get at least that amount during placement process. My question to them is that if they are having experience of selling pharmaceutical products and they are applying in a Financial Company, how much relevance of their experience is to the latter company. As you are pursuing your MBA, you must be aware that MCA is always a Three Year Program, can’t you take your MBA also for Three Years, in......

Acc Meas

...An Accountant's Measurement Primer! A primary function of accountants is to develop, implement, and monitor measures of economic resources, business processes and utilization of resources by such processes. Wide varieties of stakeholders use these measures in making a range of economic decisions about business organizations. Pension fund managers, as do stockholders and financial analysts, use accounting information reported by companies to assess the economic performance of those companies and form expectations of future performance. Production managers use accounting information to estimate the cost of products they produce and thus, the relatively profitability of producing more of some products and less of others. Executives use accounting information to budget economic resources among operating units. Stakeholder decisions generally have in common the objective of allocating scarce economic resources to their most productive uses, whether it is managers allocating organizational resources among subunits (or alliances of organizations) or capital owners allocating their capital among organizations (or portfolios of organizations). Consequently, it is vital for accountants to understand measurement concepts (theories) in order to achieve accounting's measurement objectives. We start with a working definition of measurement. Measurement is the assignment of numerals and other symbols to represent the magnitude of an attribute of a phenomenon. 2 A phenomenon is an object...

Bunica Mea

...Bunica mea Eu cred că un copil poate spune că a avut o copilărie fericită mai ales atunci când şi-a petrecut-o alături de bunicii lui. Bunicii întotdeauna vor putea să te facă să râzi, vor ghici toate dorinţele tale cele mai ascunse şi îţi vor mângâia copilăria cu zâmbete calde şi multă iubire. Bunica mea este cea mai bună din lume. Are ochii de culoarea ciocolatei, calzi, parcă tot timpul zâmbitori. Părul grizonat e tuns scurt şi îi încadrează faţa ovală, crestată puţin de anii bătrâneţii. Nu e înaltă, e plăpândă şi subţire însă de multe ori mă uimeşte cu forţa de care dă dovadă. Duce pe rând câte zece găleţi cu apă la grădină, ca să ude straturile şi parcă nu oboseşte deloc. Iar când se întoarce din grădină, întotdeauna îmi aduce ceva bun: o pară, un măr, un pumn de căpşuni. Bunica mea face cele mai bune prăjituri. Are reţete vechi, numai de ea ştiute. Are şi un caieţel vechi în care sunt scrise toate aceste reţete dar nu îl foloseşte niciodată. Uneori îl iau la răsfoit şi când găsesc câte o reţetă care mi se pare delicioasă îi spun: * Îmi faci prăjitura aceasta? Şi întotdeauna o pregăteşte pentru mine cu drag. Şi toate le ştie pe de rost. De multe ori încerc să o surprind cu câte o reţetă din caietul ei de care sunt sigură că nu îşi aminteşte dar ea doar îmi zâmbeşte şi îmi pregăteşte prăjitura. O iubesc mult. Şi nu pentru că mă răsfaţă cu bunătăţi şi cu cadouri, ci pentru că de multe ori mă trezesc uitându-mă la ea şi întrebându-mă cum a fost viaţa acestei......

Mea (Masyarakat Ekonomi Asia)

...BAB I PENDAHULUAN I. LATAR BELAKANG Masyarakat Ekonomi Asia (MEA) atau Pasar Bebas Asia merupakan kawasan yang akan dibentuk oleh Indonesia dan negara-negara di Asia Tenggara. Bertujuan untuk meminimalisasi adanya hambatan-hambatan dalam melakukan perdagangan lintas kawasan. Memungkinkan satu negara dapat menjual barang dan jasa dengan mudah ke negara lain di kawasan Asia Tenggara yang tentunya akan membuat kompetisi antar negara semakin ketat. Oleh karena itu, keberadaan MEA menjadi sebuah langkah awal bagi Indonesia untuk mengembangkan kualitas perdagangan khusunya di kawasan Asia Tenggara. MEA memiliki dua sisi bagi Indonesia. Yang pertama, MEA menjadi kesempatan yang baik untuk menunjukkan kualitas dan kuantitas sumber daya yang dimiliki Indonesia. Yang kedua, dapat menjadi bumerang bagi Indonesia apabila tidak memanfaatkannya dengan baik. Berkurangnya hambatan perdagangan akan berdampak pada meningkatnya kuantitas ekspor dan impor yang akhirnya akan meningkatkan Gross Domestic Product bagi Indonesia. Dengan adanya perdagangan bebas, Indonesia dapat meningkatkan ekspor. Kegiatan ekspor impor dapat menumbuhkan hubungan harmonis antarbangsa. Ekspor menjadi perhatian dalam memacu pertumbuhan ekonomi seiring dengan berubahnya strategi pada industri impor ke industri ekspor. Akan tetapi harus tetap waspada akan resiko kompetisi yang muncul dengan banyaknya barang impor yang masuk dan mengancam industri lokal dalam bersaing dengan produk luar negeri...

Why an Mba

...Why an MBA The MBA is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. What will you get out of an MBA? Aside from a powerful life experience, the MBA degree should supply three main value propositions: Skills, Networks, and Brand. Skills These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance, marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. Since MBA programs attract people from very diverse industries and cultures, a program should be able to leverage these differences and translate them into learning opportunities. Networks An MBA degree program offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business and community leaders. This network can be very useful when beginning a job search, developing a career path, building business relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise outside your current field. For example, entrepreneurs need access to capital, business partners, vendors, and clients. Arts-related businesses need access to funding and strategic management in order to position themselves to be relevant in the marketplace. Global businesses need access to local business cultures as they expand their enterprises to new......
