Net income results, reported in the financial statement presentation, can be affected by the inventory reporting methods used. FIFO, LIFO, and weighted average methods each have their own implications during periods of inflation and deflation. Assume the role of a manager, employee, or an investor, and in 1–2 pages analyze the GAAP and ethical implications of each reporting method in a hypothetical company. Then, given your role, select which reporting method you would use, and explain why. Consider tax liabilities and profit levels in your response, as well as ethical considerations you may have for your valuation method selection.
