Managerial Accounting & Control

Main Line vs. Basinger

„

Evaluate the defense argument that Mazzocone “has a duty under the law to minimize his loss, and this does not include going out and making a picture knowing you are $2m short.
„

At what stage in the negotiations did Basinger withdraw?
„

If late, it is possible some costs were contractual obligations (such as rights to script) at the time, and these obligations were assumed with the presumption of Basinger participating.

Main Line vs. Basinger

„

What were Mazzocone’s options following Basinger’s withdrawal?
„ „

Do not make movie – this assumes all costs sunk. Make with another actress – this assumes some cost recoverability.

„

„

„

How does this relate to example in previous class about airline pricing? Evaluate the following claim: “at the time of Basinger’s withdrawal, Mazzocone was faced with a short run decision.” Does loss minimization imply not making the movie, as suggested by the defense?
