    Historical-cost accounting Is a system of accounting based on the principle that assets should be valued at historical cost or historical cost is the original monetary value of an economic item.

In some circumstances, assets and liabilities may be shown at their historical cost, as if there had been no change in value since the date of acquisition. The balance sheet value of the item may therefore differ from the "true" value. It is relaxed to some extent by such practices as the valuation of stock at the lower of cost

    Questions 1. How have the inaccurate performance ratings created more problems? The inaccurate performance rating created an ethical dilemma for Hubert Johnson. Rating both employees the same even though one is more capable can lead him to making the wrong decision when retaining one supervisor for the job.

    Determine whether shareholders are better off or worse off with more leverage. Using the results of problem 2, we calculated the total value per share when firm borrows money to repurchase shares. From the calculation below, we can see that total market value of equity declined from 10,000 to 6,700, while total value per share rose from $10 to $11.70. Therefore, as the firm borrows and repurchases shares, the total value of equity declined, but the price per share rose. Assume that all the new debt is used to repurchase shares.
