Presented below are three models for setting GAAP.
1. The purely political approach, where national legislative action decrees GAAP.
2. The private, professional approach, where GAAP is set and enforced by private professional

As time passes, during which consumers adjust to using substitutes, a new shortrun

represents a much larger decrease in quantity. Thus, we
