  • To what extent is profit a good indicator of the success of an organisation

So there is no exact answer to respond what extent is profit a good indicator of success of an organisation. But reader should recognize that we can solve this problem by analysing profit that organisation achieve with a lot of other external complications."

But the adoption could also lead to a great danger, it is because if the UK joins the eurozone, UK will be also affected by the crisis in Greece and lead to depreciation in euro, and businesses will be suffered a lot and some may even lose out in the market. Also at present there are still no plans for the UK to join the euro, so now businesses can suffer less, and also as UK expectation growing, business might reach success soon."
