Question:

Describe common traits of religions that originated in South Asia, and provide examples of major traditions within this family.

Answer:

Major South Asian religions (such as Hinduism, Buddhism, or Jainism) are all based upon the notions of reincarnation, dharma, and enlightenment. The aim of existence is ultimately to achieve escape from the cycle of life-death-rebirth through enlightenment (which can mean much ranging from cessation of being to an unending state of bliss). Although they disagree on what "dharma" means, South Asian religions agree that dharma represents the way out of the fundamental problem of existence. Additionally, each of these traditions considers the role of "karma," or the relationship between actions/intent and consequences.

Question:

What characteristics distinguish early agrarian societies from their hunter/gatherer counterparts?

Answer:

Agrarian societies tended to be more hierarchical, more attached to a limited geographic range, and more specialized in terms of skills. Additionally, agrarian societies could support a greater population, and family units were also typically larger. Individuals in agrarian societies typically had less variety in their diets, with greater bulk and fewer calories.

Question:

What is the "matching principle"?

Inactive

Answer:

This basic principle means that an entity recognizes revenues and the expenses to generate those revenues in the same accounting period. For example, if a company earns sales revenue for a particular product, the costs they incurred to produce that product and bring it to market (including the salaries of salespersons) should be recognized in the same period during which they recognize the sales for that product.
