During week five we will be focused on activity based costing and management. For your discussion board post this week I would like you to read about activity based costing in chapter five of our textbook. Then I would like you in your post to summarize what is meant by this concept. Then I would like you to go to page 228-229 in your textbook. Read case 5-70 and answer the three questions. 1. Is the controller, Erin Jackson, acting ethically? 2. Is the production manager, Alan Tyler, acting ethically? 3. What are Jacksonâ€™s ethical obligations? To the president? To her friend?
