 Good Governance--The IMF's Role
Our approach is to concentrate on those aspects of good governance that are most closely related to our surveillance over macroeconomic policies—namely, the transparency of government accounts, the effectiveness of public resource management, and the stability and transparency of the economic and regulatory environment for private sector activity.
Third, the IMF has promoted transparency in financial transactions in the government budget, central bank, and the public sector more generally, and has provided assistance to improve accounting, auditing, and statistical systems.

 Learn more about Goodness and value theory in the online encyclopedia.
Electoral reform and accounting reform and even monetary reform all proceed directly from the desire to make the economic and social relation accurately reflect values decisions made by at least the wiser individuals.
Values collectivism is the view that individual lives (or their eudaimonia) are only instrumentally valuable, i.e., good only as a means to, or as an outcome of the flourishing of society; the flourishing of society (whatever this might be) is the only intrinsically good thing.
Values individualism is the view that only individual lives (or their eudaimonia) are intrinsically valuable; and so they are valuable not merely as a means to the flourishing of society.

Since the Islamic society is supposed to base its societal relationships, its economic activity and accounting on the basis of the Sharia’, it would be good to consider the general and especially the economic objectives of the sharia in addition to surveying the specific commandments related to economics and accounting.
Accounting theory is that branch of accounting which consists of the systematic statement of principles and methodology as distinct from practice...which it underlies, explains and attempts to predict.
A positive view of accounting theory states that the purpose of accounting theory is to explain and predict accounting practice as it is. This is the view of positivists such as Watts and Zimmerman (1978), Jensen and Meckling (1986) and Dopuch (1980) who criticise the value-ladenness and ‘unscientific’ nature of normative theory.

The NNP in anarchist economics should be corrected in several ways from the registrated market values of today's (2002) usual bureaucratical national accounting.
Also a more democratic society, economical and political/administrative in private and public sectors, is a public good in itself.
All of the anarchist principles should be taken into account in management and coordination, political/administrative as well as economical in private and public sectors.

 Common good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A more satisfactory definition of the common good, as the quintessential goal of the State, requires an admission of the individual's basic right in society, which is, namely, the right of everyone to the opportunity to freely shape his life by responsible action, in pursuit of virtue and in accordance with the moral law.
However, in economics, the term "common good" is used to refer to a competitive non-excludable good.
The common good, then, is the sum total of the conditions of social life which enable people the more easily and straightforwardly to do so.

 Substitute good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fact that one good is substitutable for another has immediate economic consequences: insofar as one good can be substituted for another, the demand for the two kinds of good will be bound together by the fact that customers can trade off one good for the other if it becomes advantageous to do so.
In economics, one kind of good (or service) is said to be a substitute good for another kind insofar as the two kinds of goods can be consumed or used in place of one another in at least some of their possible uses.
One good is a perfect substitute for another only if it can be used in exactly the same way, at exactly the same cost, and with exactly the same quality of outcome; that is, when there is no particular incentive for a customer to prefer one over the other.

 Search good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, a search good is a product or service with features and characteristics easily observable before purchase.
Search goods are more subject to price competition, as consumers can easily verify the price of the product at other outlets and make sure that the products are comparable.
collective good (social good) - private good - common good - club good - public good - global public good - Accounting good

 Complement good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A complement or complementary good is defined in economics as a good that should be consumed with another good, its cross elasticity of demand is negative.
An example of complement goods is hamburgers and hamburger buns.
A few types of pricing strategy exist for complementary good and its base good:

The visibles in the current account of balance of payments accounting are the legal imports and exports in the balance of trade, for which data tend to be relatively good.
A Veblen good is viewed by its owners as a status symbol, and such a good is valued by an individual because its high price places it beyond the reasonable budgets of other individuals.
Velocity (V) is the average rate at which money turns over in a period for transactions (PT) or for expenditures on final goods and services (often measured as the ratio of GDP to the money stock: V=GDP ∕ M).

 Gresham's Law (tdctrade.com)
Sir Thomas Gresham probably did not expect, when he expressed his opinion that "bad money drives out good", that it would become a dictum, and indeed a Law in monetary economics named after him.
The intrinsic values of the two currencies could be equalised through a freely determined exchange rate, and possibly through interest rates, if there is a reliable market for it, in which case it would be difficult to choose between the good money and the bad.
In terms of bank deposits, therefore, the good money would be favoured and would possibly dominate in the balance sheet of the banking system.

 The National Income Accounts
However, it’s good for you to know what the national income accounts are composed of because almost all countries in the world use it, and they are also used in contexts of valuing environmental goods in some instances.
One thing that we don’t spend as much time on in economics nowadays is national income accounting.
But a quick exercise to see how the national income accounts work is good to see – the national income accounts are frequently cited in the media.

Media concentration One of the common fears that people have over media concentration is that putting news into only a few hands may result in unscrupulous barons using their bully pulpit to achieve their own ends -- ends contrary to the public good.
Here, I'm talking about social security and Medicare -- two entitlement programs so large that they dwarf whatever paltry "deficit" or "surplus" that blips around the cash accounting system the government uses today.
All of it, I might add, was done in the name of the public good, at the behest of activists and industry lobbyists, and is supported by the same folks for the same reasons today.

 Bad Money Drives Out the Good Service
A negative EROEI means that mankind is throwing "good" energy away to move "dirt" and, in the end, recover low-grade raw hydrocarbon material that requires even more energy to upgrade to some useable form.
According to Huber, Hubbert's Peak Oil theory is "junk economics." Huber believes that EROEI is "sophomoric" and "irrelevant." And Huber states that Hubbert's matter-energy system is "nonsense" whose "constraints count for nothing." After all, states Huber, we are talking about "the real world" in which all that "investors...care about is dollar return on dollar invested."
Huber explains and justifies his ad hominem assault on the departed Hubbert as follows: "Today this same nonsense (Hubbert's 'matter-energy' system) is often dressed up with numbers in an analysis that's dubbed 'energy return on energy invested' (EROEI).

 Robert Merton Solow, Biography: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of Economics and Liberty
His article originated "sources-of-growth accounting," which economists use to estimate the separate effects on economic growth of labor, capital, and technological change.
Solow once wrote that Galbraith's disdain for ordinary consumer goods "reminds one of the Duchess who, upon acquiring a full appreciation of sex, asked the Duke if it were not perhaps too good for the common people." Of Milton Friedman, Solow wrote, "Everything reminds Milton of the money supply.
Solow followed shortly after with another pioneering article, "Technical Change and the Aggregate Production Function." Before that article economists had believed that the main causes of economic growth were increases in capital and labor.
