If Albert switches from position 1 to position 3 he gains an extra week of vacation but a salary cut of $10,000. If Ben switches from position 1 to position 3 he gains a $10,000 raise but loses a week of vacation.

In modern professional sports, athletes are paid a wage that is determined by their potential economic impact on a team. For instance, a team will sign a player to a $10 million contract only if they believe that the player will have an economic impact of at least $10 million (Landsburg).

Another advantage associated with REITs is the requirement to pay a high percentage of the revenue to its shareholders – in the US it is defined that at least 90% of the revenue has to be distributed each year (Krewson-Kelly and Thomas, n.d.). In certain cases, the REITs are choosing to distribute up to 100% of its ordinary income and capital gains as this enables to save most of the taxes that would otherwise be payable at the entry level (Simontacchi and Stoschek, 2011). Same as in the US, in countries such as the UK, Argentina, South Korea et al, it is also mandatory for REITs to distribute 90% of the total revenue (Stooker, 2014). In the UAE the minimum dividend payment requirement stands at 80% of the total audited annual net income (Enbdreit.com,

The depreciation period is inversely related to the monthly amount of non cash costs. The longer the depreciation period, the lower monthly depreciation is. Likewise, the shorter the depreciation length, the higher monthly non cash costs are. Budget modifications. If the cost of equipment purchased in May was $120,000 instead of $150,000 with the depreciation period of 80 months, non cash costs would decrease by 1.28% to $77,000 but our losses will rise to $1,268,429.
