Your supervisor has informed you that your company's CEO wants to know, "Is the assumption that the dollar is a stable unit of measurement realistic? What alternative procedures would you suggest?"
You have been directed to prepare a memo of 2-3 pages to describe this situation to the CEO of the company.
Take the following into consideration as you complete your assignment:
What does the monetary principle mean?
What is the basic measuring unit for financial reporting?
What is the common denominator that is used to make and summarize accounting measurements?
What are the stable units of distance and area?
Why might the dollar not be a stable unit of value?
