Hypothetical Scenario

As you are returning home to the U.S. from a 10-day study tour of South Africa (what an experience!), your plane had to divert to the country of Mali.   You had to stay one night in Mali, in a moderately priced hotel—it seems pretty raunchy at first.  As you are having dinner at a sidewalk cafe you notice a 9-year-old girl sitting on a curb across the street wearing torn and dirty clothes.  Something about her catches your eye, so when you finish dinner you approach her and strike up a conversation.  She slowly warms up to you and tells you about her predicament.  Her family and the fields in their village have been badly disrupted by the recent situations (food insecurity; economic distress, etc.) in the country and they are struggling to make enough to eat.  There are few jobs, and she has fallen a year behind in school.  

On the plane home the next day you are, coincidentally, seated next to an economic development consultant who is working for the World Bank Emergency Safety Nets project.  Click on this text:  Safety Nets Project (Links to an external site.).  You tell her the story of this little girl and the consultant gives out a little laugh and tells you that there are hundreds of millions of kids just like that in Africa, and while each child has a tragic story, the best way to address this is not to tend to the individual child but to introduce a food safety micro-level development project

[ Safety Nets Project (Links to an external site.)].  You ask her how to do that and she replies with a faint smile and then quotes a famous development scholar, Abhijit Banerjee.  The consultant basically suggests that you might want to help extend the micro-level development  Safety Nets Project (Links to an external site.) in the girl’s village in Mali. 

When you get back home, you watch a film about world poverty:  The End of Poverty?  One friend recommends that you read: Banerjee and Duflo’s book, Poor Economics.  You hear about participatory development, and this makes sense: you need to ask the local people, those who are marginalized, how best to help.  But then, you read a pretty damning critique of participatory development practices of the World Bank:  Cooke, Bill, “Rules of Thumb for Participatory Change Agents.” 

You speak to one of your professors and she tells you that there are all kinds of structural violence in that part of the world: from colonialism, vestiges of slavery, class hierarchies, poverty, misogyny, etc.  This makes sense, as does the development literature talking about poverty traps, conflict traps, education traps, resource traps, etc.  

Additional Essay Requirements:

Write a 3-page essay reflecting upon the World Bank’s [WB’s] food safety micro-level development project [ Safety Nets Project (Links to an external site.)] in Mali.  Draw upon the micro-level poverty reduction arguments from (a) Poor Economics, (b) relevant critiques of the World Bank from Bill Cooke, “Rules of Thumb for Participatory Change Agents,” and (c) ideas concerning poverty reduction from The End of Poverty? Also, draw on the (d) SDG Report for causes of hunger and data on hunger in Mali.

Undergraduates: Your reflections should describe the basic goals of the WB micro-level development project in Mali and possible pitfalls

Required 3-Page limit: (1 ½-spaced–11 pt. font: WORD SOFTWARE only)

audit – DISCUSSION

These studios have been releasing major blockbusters with both storylines and characters that are meant to specifically target Chinese audiences.  In fact, studios depend on these overseas audiences to save critically slammed blockbusters.Auditors at PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) found that about 9% of ticket revenues were unreported or skimmed and that this amounted to at least $40 million in revenue for the six major studios.Issues noted in the audit resulting in missing revenue included: Sales listed as concessions, incorrect audience numbers, and screenings that were completely unreported.This was part of an investigation on behalf of the Motion Picture of America Association (MPAA). The auditors examined the 29 biggest blockbuster movies released in China in 2016 and looked at 125 screen locations run by 27 different movie chains.At the time of the video and the report, the U.S. motion picture industry was renegotiating a revenue sharing agreement with China, since the original five-year agreement ended.  At question were the push by Hollywood to have more market access, as well as the Chinese to boost product from their growing movie industry.The investigation was only a sample of screens.  In fact, China has the largest number of screens in the world, numbering about 43,000.Prior to renegotiating the WTO agreement on revenue sharing, U.S. studios officially grossed $1.87 Billion and took home $470 M.Unit Learning OutcomesULO # 1: Explain the nature of the revenue process (CLO 1)ULO #2: Evaluate how an auditor’s understanding of an entity and its environment affects audit planning decisions in the revenue process (CLO 3)ULO #3: Determine inherent risk for various assertions in the revenue process (CLO 3)ULO #4: Evaluate control activities for the revenue process (CLO 2, 3)Directions View the video found here: Ch 11: Business Video: Hollywood Studios Audit China Box-Office Figures.  Answer the following questions:What events or agreements in 2015 indicated that audits between studios and the Chinese movie market would become more important?What was the revenue sharing percentage prior to renegotiation of the 2015 WTO agreement?According to the textbook, revenue recognition is more problematic with respect to audit inherent risks in some industries, as compared to others. Would this be the case in the movies industry in China? Why?Revenue recognition in Chinese movie theaters is also problematic with respect to audit control risks. Why?Note: You may perform some research to support your answer.  Some helpful links are included below.Brzeski, P. (2017).
