Accounting Differences
Accounting Differences General Comments about the Insurance Industry Insurance Companies generate revenues by selling insurance policies. These policies provide a known amount of revenue for an unknown amount of losses offsetting that revenue. This can make the matching principle difficult. Some of the potential losses can come years after the insurance policy was written and the premiums received. The liabilities for these future losses are estimated by actuaries and are subject to a certain am

France Was An Absolute Monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 1715) Was The Envy
France was an absolute monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 ? 1715) was the envy of all other rulers in Europe. During his reign he had centralized the government and had encouraged trade and manufacture. His undoing was the long list of over ambitious wars that he had participated in. His successors Louis XV (1715 ? 74) and Louis XVI (1774 ? 93) also participated in lengthy and costly conflicts. France had suffered defeat in the Seven Years War against Britain (1756 ? 63). Her army in Europe was crushed b
