Project #54131 - Finance

1.     In early 2014, the United States government had more than $17 trillion in debt (approximately $55,000 for every U.S. citizen) outstanding in the form of Treasury bills, notes, and bonds. From time to time, the Treasury changes the mix of securities that it issues to finance government debt, issuing more bills than bonds or vice versa.With short-term interest rates near 0 percent in early 2014, suppose the Treasury decided to replace maturing notes and bonds by issuing new Treasury bills, thus greatly shortening the average maturity of U.S. debt outstanding. Discuss the pros and cons of this strategy.

 

2.    2.  Financial executives insist that there should be no separation between an individual's personal ethics and his or her business ethics. "It's a jungle out there" and "business is business" should not be excuses for engaging in unethical behavior. Many firms have ethics codes which are based on economically rational concepts such as integrity and trustworthiness, which guide the decision maker in attempting to increase shareholder wealth. Of course, some employees sometimes choose to not comply with their firm's ethics code. How do ethics codes apply to project selection and capital budgeting? What are the potential risks to a company of unethical behaviors by employees? What are potential risks to the public and to stakeholders? Please explain how Saint Leo’s core value of integrity is reflected in your answer.

 

 

3.     Is there a conflict between maximizing shareholder wealth and never paying bribes when doing business abroad? If so, how might you explain the firm's position to shareholders asking why the company does not pay bribes when its foreign competitors in various nations clearly do so? Please explain how the core value of responsible stewardship is reflected in your answer.
