  • Could Gambling Save Science: Encouraging An Honest Consensus - 4,913 words
    ... section is somewhat dense, and may be profitably skimmed on a first reading.) ASSETS Imagine that John bets Mary $5, at even odds, that it will rain next Monday. Since they don't entirely trust each other, John and Mary put the bet in writing and each give $5 to Frank, a trusted third party. John has essentially paid $5 for an I.O.U. that says "Worth $10 If Rain Monday", since if he wins he gets $5 from Mary and his own $5 back. Mary's I.O.U. says "Worth $10 If Not Rain Monday". On Tuesday one of them can cash in their I.O.U. for $10 from Frank. This standard betting scenario can be improved by breaking it into different transactions; first create the I.O.U.s and then sell them. Replace ...

  • Financial Case Of Deanna Perez Fashions Inc - 1,426 words
    Financial Case Of Deanna Perez Fashions Inc. 1.The financial strength of Deanna Perez Fashions in comparison to the industry can be found by a relative comparison of its Current and TIE ratios to the industry averages. Both of these averages show the lack of their ability, relative to the industry to cover expenses. DPFs current ratio, an indicator of the extent to which claims of short-term creditors are covered by current assets, is much lower than the industry average, suggesting that its liquidity position is relatively weak. The DPFs TIE ratio of 1.5 is also very low in comparison to the industry average of 3.5. This shows that for DPF, relative to the industry they have less leeway in ...

(Retailers Would Put Teeth 1921, 190) The Canadian government, in passing the Fraudulent Advertising Act, had followed some U.S. states in implementing a watered-down version of legislation requiring proof of intent to deceive. This, of course, made it very difficult to obtain convictions. Fifteen years later, the act had yet to be used and was soundly criticized by a Canadian lawyer writing in the retitled EA, now called Marketing. It [the Fraudulent Advertising Act] serves only to bring law into general contempt; for though it proscribes lying in advertising, lying continues to flourish with impudent impunity (Wilson 1929, 2 ...
