FIN 534 Week 1 Discussion
Discussion 1: An Overview of Financial Management
A. What were the principal causes of the recent financial crisis (it is known as the Great Recession)? Would you include Government policies that encouraged housing purchases for those who could not afford them, artificially low interest rates implemented by the Federal Reserve, banks and mortgage brokers who were greedy, the failure of Government regulators to provide proper oversight to the banks and other financial institutions, individuals who borrowed and spent more than they should have, or some other causes?
B. From the e-Activity, examine ethical behavior within firms in relation to financial management. Provide at least two (2) recent (in the last 5 years) examples (other than Enron, WorldCom, and Bernie Madoff) of companies that have been guilty of ethics-based malfeasance related to financial management. What were the specific sanctions that were imposed and explain why the sanctions and penalties were appropriate?
C. How do you describe the significant changes that have occurred in the CFO (chief financial officer) position in recent years? What changes do you think will occur in the future? Provide specific examples that are supported by at least two credible references accompanied by proper reference citations.
