Foolish QuickBooks Change – Backups

Intuit recently again wasted money on a foolish QuickBooks change, when it should have given us a choice. This involves having Automatic BackUps add ABU_0_, ABU_1_, etc. before file names. I can understand why some might wish to separate automatic backups from manual backups, though it seems like a foolish QuickBooks change to me. However, […]

QuickBooks Fraud

I have seen too much QuickBooks fraud to remember. A new bookkeeper tried to cover his tracks by backdating embezzlement entries to before he arrived. At the time, he was among the many who did not know that QuickBooks already had an always-on audit trail. Turning it on simply made QuickBooks begin tracking CHANGES to […]

Old-Fashioned Fraud

I saw too much old-fashioned fraud (before QuickBooks) to remember. My first audit, as an employee, caught repeat submission of the same petty cash receipts. The same company later caught the fraud of a neighbor’s son. My first personal audit client caught much more old-fashioned fraud. A bookkeeper helped me get four good new non-profit […]

Smart New Phones

Smart New Phones

My smart new phones (phone lines) mean you now need only one number for me, 24/7/365: 954-903-7250 or 888-503-8677. These smart new phones are voice – fax phones, so I am dropping my separate 954-649-7541 fax number. Why pay $50+ for a fax and $50+ a month for a fax line that only handles one […]

Keynes is Fiction

Keynes is Fiction

Keynes is fiction to the extent Keynes followers say the government can stimulate the economy by spending more than it takes in.  Keynes himself effectively said Keynes is fiction. According to Wikipendia and other sources, “… Keynes told an advisor to the Bank of England of his hopes that Adam Smith’s ‘invisible hand’ can help Britain out of the […]
