Thank you Daniel. I’m taking my first accounting class and your video was
very helpful. I needed to better understand this one concept and when I
asked my instructor to explain, his answer was to “read the Principles of
Accounting”, which for me was like saying why don’t you go hunting for
flies with an elephant gun.
