  • Financial Statements: Economic Analysis and Interpretation


    Financial Statements explains the logic of financial statements, and how we use them to analyse firms in economic terms. Its approach is very different to existing books on financial statements, bringing a remarkable amount of order and simplicity to what can appear a complex subject.

    The book covers a number of issues that have had little attention before, including the analysis of growth, how business model reengineering is affecting reported financial performance, the effect of the firm's accounting model on its reported cash flow and the vulnerability of measures such as EBITDA.

    The book examines the main problem areas in accounting: where balance sheets are frequently incomplete, the techniques of `off-balance-sheet financing' such as operating leasing, how assets and liabilities are valued in balance sheets, and the tension in GAAP between historic cost and current or `fair' value accounting.

    The book contains a concise review of the two dominant accounting systems: US GAAP, or Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and IFRS.

    Finally the book examines the ways in which firms present their income numbers to achieve a favourable look.

    This book is essential reading for practitioners and students, and for anyone who wants to use and understand financial statements

  • Shall We Stay Or Shall We Go?


    This report looks in detail at the available datasets so that we can see the numbers re-migrating and get a clearer picture of who is going and why. IPPR have also gathered new evidence through open surveys and through research in six case study countries, which involved extensive interviewing of people who have re-migrated from the UK.

    In this report IPPR sets out to quantify and analyse re-migration from the United Kingdom, and to understand what motivates immigrants to leave. The phenomenon of re-migration - in other words the emigration of immigrants - has not, on the whole, been well documented or understood. But policymakers should care about re-migration and know more about those leaving.

     This is particularly necessary at a time when the processes for controlling and managing immigration are being tightened, with the aim of selecting immigrants on the basis of their skills. International competition for highly-skilled migrants is intensifying and it makes no sense for the UK to succeed in attracting such migrants only to lose them quickly because of re-migration.

    The report is based on a major international research project ippr undertook in 2008. It uses a wide range of original qualitative research undertaken in a number of countries and involves a comprehensive analysis of all the data relating to re-migration. In mapping an often hidden migration flow we hope it will help all levels of UK government to better manage migration to and from the UK, as well as contribute to international policy debates about onward migration, super-mobility and reintegration of returned migrants in their home countries.


    Various case studies published with this report can be found here.
