Question: Is depreciation based on "market value at the time" because if so it could be like an old mint baseball card that increases even thought "naturally" it is decressing. If they stop making computers for a year and you got the latest line before the stoppage and you wish to resell it on the market wouldn't you get an appreciation on it even though its "naturally" depreciating.

I am saying there are three types of depreciation: Physical Depreciation Psychological Depreciation Legal Depreciation Physical depreciation is like your car wearing out, or your house needing a new roof every 20 years. These are the result of use and environmental factors. They must be fixed or replaced by consumers and businesses, but businesses make money on the consumers. Psychological depreciation is the result of a reduction in people's willingness to pay a certain amount of money for...

Re: Danish Newspaper And Mohammed Cartoon

The cartoons were originally commisioned to test the boundaries of free speech in Denmark. An ethnically Danish author who was writing a pro-Muslim children's book on Islam, couldn't find anyone to illustrate it for fear of violence and persecution from the Muslims in Denmark. He questioned whether political correctness in regards to Muslims was hindering free speech in the country. The newspaper drawings were meant as a test--granted, a rather childish one.
