The Economic Value Of The Natural Environment

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Jun 9, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Guest Blogger: Dr. Peter Schuhmann, Professor of Economics, Cameron School of Business

What is clean air worth? Is clean water good for the economy? Do parks, wetlands, beaches and coral reefs have real economic value? 

These are important and timely questions to consider as politicians and policymakers debate the merits of environmental protection.  Arguments for scaling back environmental regulations often include suggestions that environmental protection limits “free” market forces, increases costs to businesses, results in less economic activity and causes the economy to preform worse than it would if such regulations were absent.

In the past, companies have had the luxury of more time to adapt to change than that which is quickly becoming the standard today. In fact, on the technology front, many believe we are outpacing Moore’s Law, which states that technological processing power will likely double in as few as 18 months.

A Powerful But Underutilized Tax Subsidy For U.S. Exporters

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Apr 28, 2017 9:15:00 AM

Guest Blogger: Dr. Allison Evans, associate professor of accounting, Cameron School of Business

U.S. exporters can potentially generate large tax savings - roughly 20 percent of their original tax bill - by forming an IC-DISC (Interest-Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation). The most common type of IC-DISC acts, at least on paper, as the exporter’s sales agent. Yet, while the IC-DISC does have recordkeeping and capital requirements, it does not need to have a physical location, employ a single person or interact with any customers. In essence, it can be invisible to those who do business with the exporter, but yield a substantial reduction in the exporter’s tax bill.
