Finish my section of a group project going over a comparison of Alcatel-Lucent's consolidated financial statement reconciliation to U.S. GAAP from IFRS
Read about derivatives. I got through the first page and didn't quite see how it "managed" risk, it seemed a lot like gambling but hedge funds, speculators, and derivatives make a bit more sense to me now than it did last month.
Get started on my paper on Germany regarding the social/economic/political implications they've encountered in switching from German GAAP to IFRS.
I don't know if I'll get it all done tonight. Maybe the first two... in my group project I was assigned to write about capitalization of development costs & liability recognition of employee benefits. I've only finished the first one.
And I've only started the brainstorming portion of the Germany paper.
Kicker is, this is all for ONE class.
My tax class is fairly easy and I'll probably get more into now that we're past the research portion and will now start establishing how to determine basis.
Next semester I believe I'm supposed to be taking advanced financial auditing and professional ethics/legal issues with accounting. The ethics one will probably be easy.
On the agenda
