paper Link to whitepaper Lehman Brothers Accounting Magic Deleveraging Manipulation and Moral Hazard White Paper The Role of Savings Rate in the Economic Crisis White Paper Author Dr Amir Shoham Temple University Published date June 13 2012 When considering the current economic crisis we can discern that variables of two different types contributed to its creation and magnitude The first are the real variables that caused the initial imbalance in the economy The second variables are the nominal ones which are usually catalysts that accelerate situations Metaphorically the real variables can be compared to fire and the nominal ones to the fuel Considering the way the crisis evolved there is a clear view of the chief real variable that caused the crisis This variable is the change in the savings rates primarily in the US If we briefly review the history of the crisis we see that the first signals of genuine economic instability began to appear in the first half of 2007 when a large wave of sub prime mortgage lenders in the United States became insolvent However the seeds of the crisis were planted many years before The United States created a deficit in its current account that grew steadily throughout the last decade The deficit on one side of the ocean created surplus on the other side especially in countries like China and Singapore These countries then loaned the surplus back to the US so that it would be able to continue buying imports Usually a current account deficit is highly correlated with a government deficit and the data from years before the crisis show that the US is no different During this period several bubbles were created in the American economy The first bubble appeared in the lending market led by the housing market where mortgages are granted to sub prime borrowers and prime borrowers with low self equity These loans expanded beyond all reasonable proportions because of the financial system s eagerness for short term profits This eagerness was ignited by short term incentive contracts signed with managers of financial companies or what is known professionally as the principal agent problem Simultaneously mortgages became securitized which created an additional problem when rating companies granted these securities AAA ratings despite the high risk levels The lack of supervision over the highly influential rating companies working in an unregulated branch exacerbated the crisis Click on the link below to download the full white paper Link to whitepaper The Role of Savings Rate in the Economic Crisis Paper Crowdfunding A New Era of Democratized Entrepreneurship Paper Author Dr Sunil Wattal Temple University Published date May 10 2012 Crowd funding has been defined as a collective effort by consumers who network and pool their money together usually via the Internet in order to invest in and support efforts initiated by other people or organizations Crowd funded marketplaces Internet platforms that support the crowd funding process have recently emerged as a viable new approach to sourcing capital to support innovative entrepreneurial ideas and ventures In these markets any individual can propose a project and interested others can contribute their funds to support it These markets typically come in one of four configurations i lending based ii reward based iii donation based and iv equity based Amongst these lending and donation based platforms are the longest standing Well known examples of lending and donation based markets include Kiva org micro finance which was established in 2005 and Prosper com peer to peer lending which was established in 2006 Recently reward based platforms have come to the fore A prime example of this marketplace type is Kickstarter which helped entrepreneurs to raise just under 100 million in 2011 and is set to raise triple that amount in 2012 Finally equity based platforms are virtually non existent in the United States at the moment due to legal restrictions that are currently undergoing changes However CrowdCube founded in 2010 and based in the United Kingdom is the best known example of this crowd funding format Click on the link

Michael Moughan CPA CFP Ph D Temple University Published date April 24 2012 Can the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the International Accounting Standards Board Agree on One Set of Global Accounting Standards and will the Securities Exchange Commission Agree to the Standards adopted The Securities and Exchange Commission SEC is on record as stating that they are responsible for the protection of American investors and that they will never compromise that mission The SEC believes it has set the highest regulatory standards for the financial markets of any country on earth as it oversees the Financial Accounting Standards Board FASB and approves the FASB s formulation of accounting principles for US companies These principles are known as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles or GAAP Starting in 2001 the International Accounting Standards Board IASB a successor of the 1973 established International Accounting Standards Committee has been issuing International Financial Reporting Standards IFRS for most of the rest of the world to follow when producing financial statements over 100 accounting organizations and 80 countries and 9 000 companies are involved complying with the IFRS However for many years the accounting profession both within the US
