Explain the concept of financial leverage and analyze how it can affect capital structure decisions.

 
: The Cost of Capital
To expand operations, firms often require more funds than can be generated from operations. These additional funds require a long-term source of capital. There are two primary means of raising the required additional funds: borrowing the funds (bonds), or selling ownership (stock shares). There is a cost to the firm of raising capital using either method. The firm expects to receive a financial benefit from the assets acquired with the raised capital. To ensure the benefit outweighs the cost of the capital, the firm must determine with some accuracy the cost of the capital and compare it to the benefit to be received. Determining the cost of borrowing is straightforward. Calculating the cost of selling shares in the firm is more complex.
Do the following to complete this assignment:

Explain the cost of capital and how it is determined.
Explain the concept of the optimal capital structure and how it can be determined.
Explain the concept of financial leverage and analyze how it can affect capital structure decisions.
Provide an example of a highly leveraged firm and estimate the leverage’s effect when the firm is doing well, and when there is a downturn in sales.

What are some ways that organizations can ensure third-parties meet the security requirements for their data?

1) One of the major issues with implementing BC/DR is that companies will often miss non-obvious, yet crucial, data and resources. Many organizations have in-house developed scripts, spreadsheets, and other data that is not contained in a database or critical system. If you were the CIO of a company, what procedures would you implement to ensure that recovery efforts brought back all critical data, including these easily-forgotten items?
(Don’t forget to give us at least one good citation for the facts?

2)A common issue we face with cloud storage is whether we trust the third-party to practice proper security habits or not. What are some ways that organizations can ensure these third-parties meet the security requirements for their data?

3)When it comes to business stakeholders and IT personnel, most everyone agreed that it was important to ensure that communication between the two parties be fluid. If you oversaw the BC/DR planning for your organization, how would you ensure that the intentions of the recovery and continuity plans were accurately communicated to business stakeholders? Think about the kinds of resources you could produce, along with the many communication channels organizations have at their disposal.

Discuss the factors that you believe influence inter-industry wage/salary differentials.

 

Some industries appear to pay higher wages than others, even when measurable labor quality or the type of work they do seems similar. Use the Internet or the Strayer Library database to research one (1) company in a high and another in a low paying industry. Next, examine the key differences in the inter-industry wage differentials (e.g., IT vs. Retail industry). You will then need to summarize your findings within your discussion post.
Discuss at least two (2) factors that you believe influence inter-industry wage/salary differentials. 

Respond to classmate:
 
I am going to use the hospitality industry in Las Vegas to do some comparisons, specifically hotel front desk representatives.
The type of work that is required is the same across the board. You must greet guests, check them in and out of the hotel and make their first point of contact amazing. You set the tone for their stay at the hotel. This is the same at any hotel.
The first group of front desk clerks work on the famous Las Vegas Strip, specifically MGM Properties, who own quite a few hotels on the strip as well as across the country. The second group of front desk clerks work in hotel/casinos that are off of the strip in Las Vegas. 
Although the duties for each are the same, the wage differential is big. A front desk clerk off of the strip has an average annual salary between $27,000 – $33,000 per year where as a front desk clerk on the LV strip makes an average annual salary between $38,000 – $43,000 per year.
Two factors of why I believe their is such a wage difference is location and size of company. The Las Vegas Strip is a destination place for tourists from all over the world and the rates for their hotel rooms tend to be higher, especially during peak seasons and special events. They are also owned and managed by very large corporations and are able to pay higher wages. The properties off of the strip cater more to locals and are usually owned by companies that are not as large. They do not have the high guest turnover rate and income potential as the strip properties. 

Explain the international balance of payments (BOP) and the reason for its use.

Do the following to complete this assignment:

Explain the international balance of payments (BOP) and the reason for its use.
Examine how surpluses and deficits in the balance of payments (BOP) affect exchange rates.
Explain the balance of payment (BOP) summary accounts and the process through which surpluses and deficits are tracked through their use.
Provide an example by creating a balance of payment summary account sample, including a surplus or deficit.
