The foundations of mathematics and the roots of finance
An important spreadsheet-checking tip; if a company has both negative net asset value and operating losses, it will show up as having a positive return on equity.
(Extra credit question: Is the number you get by dividing the losses by the shareholders' funds deficit a meaningful quantity to measure?
For the journalism and English majors: If company X lost $100 last year and lost $50 this year, has the attributable profit "increased" or "decreased"? (Significant amounts of money has been lost and lifelong friendships broken up, basically over this point of usage).
