Watts’ accounting regulation explanations and evidence have important implications for accounting regulators (Watts 2003). Asymmetry in litigation leads to asymmetry in regulator’s cost. In essence, what Watts is saying is that, conservatism cuts the political expenses on regulators and standard setters. Moreover, to decrease taxes and increase a firm’s value, there must be an asymmetry between gains and losses. If a firm under report profits they will pay less money, hence there is a direct link between profits and
Additionally, they came together with other countries for one purpose and that was to pass the Open Door Policy to allow everyone to access China. Thus humanitarian reasons for imperialism is invalid because the U.S. wanted to trade with China to improve their economy. Overall, out of the three theories, humanitarian, defense, and economic, economic is the main reason for American imperialism. This is shown in many case studies like Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and China. The U.S. looked for opportunities to gain economic benefits
Protectionism can also have a negative impact on the growth of the national economy, for instance economists argue that imposing trade barriers on imports from other countries would harm the exporting competing industrial sectors in US as trading partners would also impose protectionist measures to balance the returns from trade which will result in the decrease of US
Capital reduction is the process of reducing a firm’s shareholder equity through share repurchases and share cancellations. The reduction of capital method is used if the firm wishes to increase the shareholders’ values and to produce a more efficient capital structure. Hill country can repurchase their shares from the marketplace. A share repurchase not only reduces the number of shares outstanding, it also increases the earnings per share and elevates the market value of the remaining shares in the market.

Of course there are many more factors make the formation of the stock market bubble and burst.

The emerging economies are having a forceful power of influence and are therefore an assertive force in the global economy. “For example, when China entered the WTO in 2001, no one expected it to become the world’s largest exporter in 2010; now, issues like China tariff profile or renminbi value have become of global interest giving China great influence during negotiations.” (Hufbauer, 2011). The Doha Development Round focused on the developing countries and wanted to accord great flexibility for the market-opening obligations. But on the contrary, the developed countries like the United States or the European Union were left behind. In order that the developing countries were gaining progressively influence while the developed countries were losing their power.
Porter’s five forces model To analyse the microenvironment facing United Biscuits in China, Porter’s five forces model is selected to provide an understanding of the competitive forces, to determine the competitive position of the company and profitability within the biscuit industry whilst offering a framework for predicting and inﬂuencing competition over time (Porter, 2008, p.80). The findings are explained below: Threat of new entrants • The high capital cost required for investing in developing distribution, sales network and acquiring production equipment could deter new entrants. The barriers are high when capital is necessary for unrecoverable expenditures such as marketing and product development capability which is difficult for new entrants to succeed in the short-term (Euromonitor, 2014; Porter, 2008, p.81). • In China, government regulation and policies regarding food products are very strict due to various food safety scandals in recent years. All biscuit manufacturers have to reach the state standard requirements for quality, packaging etc.
