Recent scandals over how large companies have been cooking the books reminds me of a basic accounting course I took years ago. The professor was explaining an accounting method called First In Last Out, which is useful for industries that accumulate large inventories of stuff. It explains why the oil industry, for example, reported huge profits during the 1970’s when the oil shortage occurred. They stopped buying oil, so they had to use oil that, on paper, had been purchased in the 1930’s at 20 bucks a barrel. They of course sold it at current market prices, which accounted for their huge profits. One of the students put up his hand and said, “Excuse me, sir, but that doesn’t sound very ethical to me.” To which the professor replied, “You’re in the wrong class, son, this is Accounting 101. Ethics 101 is down the hall.”
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “You’re U.S. Government property. You’re a malfunctioning thirty million dollar weapon.”
Answer: The Bourne Identity! Conklin said this Jason when Jason finally caught up to Conklin and demanded to know who he was. I really recommend that you read the books. The movie was good, but nowhere near the book. If you have read the three Bourne books, then take my quiz on them.
