If your employer will not provide an entry, you may use this sample financial analysis statement. (see attachment)

After selecting the financial statement(s) to use, you will need to read the following article: Fisher, J. G., & Krumwiede, K. (2015). Product costing systems: Finding the right approach. Journal of Corporate Accounting & Finance, 26(4), 13–21. Retrieved from http://libraryresources.waldorf.edu/login? url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bsu&AN=102202378&site=ehost-live&scope=site 

Once you have read the article, address the following questions based on both the article and your chart(s): 

analyze your current system using the three dimensions of convenience, correctness, and costs of implementation; 

correlate your current company’s product cost design abilities by answering the four key product design questions; 

and employ strategies for how businesses can better present financial statements for other businesses or financial institutions.

 Your assignment must be at least two pages in length, not counting the title and references pages. You must have at least two outside sources, which can include the textbook and the Fisher and Krumwiede article. Remember to use APA style format throughout all portions of the assignment.

Discussion: The Globalization of Health

Discussion: The Globalization of Health

Cell phones, video cameras, and other technologies are changing the way we live today. It is difficult to avoid the stories and images of poverty, human rights abuses, disasters, diseases, and other tragedies that plague people in rich and poor countries alike.

It is not just communications technology that is making the world a “smaller” place. Globalization is also exerting a powerful effect on the conditions in which people live and work, (i.e., the social determinants of health) and, thus, on health itself.

To prepare for this Discussion, review your Learning Resources. Search online for current stories/events related to population health.

Post a brief summary on the effects of globalization on health in Russia. Discuss one change in quality of life in post-transition Russia. Also, explain one change in mortality in post-transition Russia. Provide examples for both. Expand on your insights utilizing the Learning Resources.

Use APA formatting for your Discussion and to cite your resources.
