Finance Management Insights

Definition of Finance:
The science that describes the management of money, banking, credit, investments, and assets. Corporate or Business Finance is basically the methodology of allocating financial resources, with a financial value, in an optimal manner to maximize the wealth of a business enterprise. There are three major decisions to be made in this allocation process: capital budgeting, financing, and dividend policy

"Student's perceptions are catching up with reality. As college juniors and seniors are about to embark on life after college, they're starting to realize they could use more credit education information and resources to help make smart financial decisions. It's critical for college students to learn responsible personal finance management early to build a strong credit history, which they'll need to help establish their lives after college."
Jeff Schumacher

"I have never been in a situation where having money made it worse." - Clinton Jones

The IRS spends God knows how much of your tax money on these toll-free information hot lines staffed by IRS employees, whose idea of a dynamite tax tip is that you should print neatly. If you ask them a real tax question, such as how you can cheat, they're useless. So, for guidance, you want to look to big business. Big business never pays a nickel in taxes, according to Ralph Nader, who represents a big consumer organization that never pays a nickel in taxes - Dave Barry

I'm proud to be paying taxes in the United States. The only thing is - I could be just as proud for half the money. - Arthur Godfrey

Everything in the world may be endured except continued prosperity. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Only the little people pay taxes. - Leona Helmsley, hotel owner and prison inmate, 1989

I figure you have the same chance of winning the lottery whether you play or not. - Fran Lebowitz

We haven't the money, so we've got to think.- Lord Rutherford

It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating. - Oscar Wilde

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. - Oscar Wilde

I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart. - EE Cummings

Financial education needs to become a part of our national curriculum and scoring systems so that it’s not just the rich kids that learn about money.. it’s all of us. - David Bach

Before you can really start setting financial goals, you need to determine where you stand financially. - David Bach

The basic prescription for preventing deflation is straightforward, at least in principle: Use monetary and fiscal policy as needed to support aggregate spending, in a manner as nearly consistent as possible with full utilization of economic resources and low and stable inflation. In other words, the best way to get out of trouble is not to get into it in the first place.- Ben Bernanke

The sources of deflation are not a mystery. Deflation is in almost all cases a side effect of a collapse of aggregate demand.. a drop in spending so severe that producers must cut prices on an ongoing basis in order to find buyers. - Ben Bernanke

There’s no denying that a collapse in stock prices today would pose serious macroeconomic challenges for the United States. Consumer spending would slow, and the U.S. economy would become less of a magnet for foreign investors. Economic growth, which in any case has recently been at unsustainable levels, would decline somewhat. History proves, however, that a smart central bank can protect the economy and the financial sector from the nastier side effects of a stock market collapse. - Ben Bernanke

Mr. Greenspan did a very good job in the early 1990’s. But recently he’s fallen prey to this crazy theory that prosperity causes inflation. So they’re trying to slow the economy down by raising interest rates. It’s like a doctor saying you’re in great health, so we have to make you sick a little bit. It’s a bizarre theory. It’s going to hurt our economy. - Steve Forbes

I'm quite worried about the fiscal imbalances that we've got and what that might mean in terms of financial crisis ahead. - Bill Gates

Any informed borrower is simply less vulnerable to fraud and abuse.  - Alan Greenspan

To succeed, you will soon learn, as I did, the importance of a solid foundation in the basics of education-literacy, both verbal and numerical, and communication skills. - Alan Greenspan

The reason I entered the election race was to promote reforms. For us who engage in business, we will be severely affected if financial and structural reforms don't proceed. - Takafumi Horie

A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life. - Suze Orman

Owning a home is a keystone of wealth.. both financial affluence and emotional security. - Suze Orman

After you marry, every asset either of you acquires is jointly held. That's why you both need to be in sync on your long-term financial goals, from paying off the mortgage to putting away for retirement. Ideally, you should talk about all this before you wed. If you don't, you can end up deeply frustrated and financially spent. - Suze Orman

In all realms of life it takes courage to stretch your limits, express your power, and fulfill your potential.. it's no different in the financial realm. -Suze Orman

A weak currency is the sign of a weak economy, and a weak economy leads to a weak nation. - Ross Perot

Debt has become a part of who we are. - Dave Ramsey

The most important thing for a young man is to establish a credit.. a reputation, character. - John D. Rockefeller

Business is not financial science, it's about trading.. buying and selling. It's about creating a product or service so good that people will pay for it. - Anita Roddick

The pace at eBay was frantic and urgent. We knew that if we didn't move fast, somebody would come into the market and quash us. Participant doesn't make a lot of sense from a financial investment perspective, so it's unlikely that other people will be approaching the business in the same way. So you see less urgency; you see a thoroughness and willingness to spend extra time to get things right. Which I think is really important. - Jeff Skoll

Whenever there is a a financial crisis, it is always the banks that get hit. - Gordon Wu

“We want to expand our investment banking activities especially in risk management and financing,”  - David Wright

The effective management of energy costs is increasingly important as companies strive to maintain a competitive edge. The center looks forward to helping California businesses measure and mitigate these costs, and manage the competitive risks associated with energy price volatility.”  - Andrew Hargadon

"The timing of this financing is opportune. It allows us to pursue the acquisition of the properties, which, once completed, management believes can be put into production faster than other comparable zinc projects." - Michael Judson

Certainty delivers broad Financial Control Management functionality to automate the day-to-day work performed in finance organizations, such as enforcing corporate policies, GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulations.”  - Eric Keller

“I am therefore stepping aside as Minister of Finance and Chair of Management Board of Cabinet pending a resolution of this issue,”  - Greg Sorbara

“Another name that's probably been kicked around by fears over interest rates. It's well off its high. It's a leader in the consumer finance business. At the end of this year, it will have produced 25 consecutive years of earnings increases. That's a pretty impressive record with a rock-solid management, selling at about 15 or 16 times next year's numbers. So it looks like a pretty good deal to me.” - David Brady

“In this case, it's a stealth bull market. You can make money buying stocks of good, understandable businesses - good being defined as good balance sheets, good rates of growth, good management, no off-balance-sheet financing. No nonsense.”  - Harvey Eisen

We're very pleased to welcome her to our team, and look forward to her contributions to our commitment to excellent customer service.” - Vic Angoco

“We have seen quite a few people walk away from deals after the management rejects it. Interest rates are going up. Debt financing is costing more, so that's going to put a bit of pressure on what people can bid for.” - Stuart Fraser
