Banking Industry's Fair Value Accounting (FVA) Conundrum
Every company and almost every individual holds fixed assets. Over time, these assets change in value. For example, real estate tends to increase in value

Times are Tough - RIR Might Leave More Cash on Your Balance Sheet


For residents and tourists of Paris (France), using RER or Paris Metro is certainly a way to save on commuting costs (and parking frustrations) compared to owning and renting cars. This blog post is not about transportation, but rather about an inventory management method with a similar name.
