#22099 Socialism etc.

Posted by Moral Fabric on 11 May 2005 - 01:13 PM in General Chat

I've just joined HSN and I was guided towards this argument by a current member and friend, ermdeviation. I'm a Capitalist on a personal level and but I have to agree with some socialistic views and policies like Benefits and free healthcare, etc.

However it does not work. It is highly unreasonable to think that by turning a world into equally distributed wealth that it will work, there are people in this world that just would not conform, some people strive for more. Majoritably mankind would benefit, but in the long run it would just lead to a huge revolution because of personal wants becoming 'needs'.

Maybe it is just my view, but I cannot see a world working purely on Socialism or Capitalism, a blend will need to be created, a fair one, where it is possible to progress in life and become wealthy without being taxed 90%, but with poverty and crime non existent and human rights adhered to.

It i this Utopian situation that, both sides of the coin, whether Socialist or Capitalist, strive for, but arrogance causes them to rarely see the advantage of the 'opposing' side. A blend must be created, fairly to achieve what both parties are after before another cold war is initiated.

Thanks for reading,
Regards,

We live in a country with a mixed economy and it has not ended poverty or crime. To me the Welfare State has served to prove a point: that watered down, social-democractic policies will not acheive their Socialist objectives because they still rely on a capitalist economy - an economy which breeds inequality and injustice.

That's just your opinion though, and granted. mine is an opinion also biggrin.gif

I'm not going to appeal at all in any subject, I would rather let someelse do it, they only let one person per class...

QUOTE(wikked-dfc @ May 16 2005, 09:04 PM)
I put depreciation in because it is a cost which is fixed throughout the year and I assumed it was mentioned as being excluded since there was a Cash Budget and it isn't included in the Cash Budget. I'm really not sure though. The COntribution worked out above is correct though I missed out thelabour cost per hour and just used the £9 how stupid of me duh!

i didnt put dep in, i didnt think it was meant to be included, i'm sure you write that off with profit rather then in the price of the product...

Oh yeah I just used the £9 but I'll only lose like two marks for it for adding wrong

View Post



you might lose more though, cos of the question you "had to sell less" for...
and the MOS will be consequential
there are some others you may lose a further mark...



#23734 Horrendous Exam

Posted by Moral Fabric on 16 May 2005 - 04:28 PM in Accounting

Personally i feel the paper was quite hard, there was alot a places you could slip up on. I was looking at past pass marks, last year you needed 71% then 2003 was 75% hopefully they won't raise it this year, if anything it should go down a few %.
what do you guys think? sad.gif



#23724 Horrendous Exam

Posted by Moral Fabric on 16 May 2005 - 04:10 PM in Accounting

question 6 is wrong, break even is not 1200 units, its 2500 units
Contribution = £50 - 5 - (3x9) - (2x3) = £12
BEP = FC/Cont = 30,000/£12
= 2,500 Units, Sales Value = 50x2,500 = £125,000

I think. laugh.gif

Im not sure about that mistake.

People have told me that 22 is the 11 months figure, so 24 will be the 12 months one.

Still it was a complete f*ck up and the reason we could have done pishly is because the stupid SQA think its great to have two common Highers on the same day - how are we able to have our "wits" about us and avoid making stupid mistakes when your completely exhausted?

OHHH MAN, thats crap!!! i couldnt work that out, i kept making that mistake, i though he was owed it from a seperate month out of this year and had to be payed this month, they should have worded it more clearly, hopefully that'll come up at the markers meeting!

Louts, you've changed the title biggrin.gif

Just from this thread, I reckon its obvious the Accounting Paper has been a difficult, although the SQA didn't exactly help with their shocking wording of questions and "odd" compulsory questions.

What was it before? biggrin.gif
Well I guess it makes things a bit better that there are a few of you that found the exam to be really nasty. Pass marks will most likely be lower at least!

Are you sure about the B/E? I couldn't decide whether to add depreciation in or not for fixed costs. Anyways, all of my figures were whole numbers throughout the rest of the Q so that has to be good biggrin.gif

Man, tht was a bad exam - still feeling goroggy, just having done geo, then hit with wthat. Kept getting temperature fluctuations.

On the bright side - I won our accounting prize. Me gets a shield thing for it biggrin.gif

stolen from my clutches i may add tongue.gif lol
joking biggrin.gif
it was a hard exam, in a hot n stuffy classroom with an invidulator that interupted once or twice, lol... i guess she was just trying to help
anyway, i've failed,... and yes... i'm positive about the B/E cos your accounting for one unit, one unit takes 3 labour hours to produce to the variable cost is the labour hours X the rate they are paid at cool.gif
