    There is a limit to how much goodwill (the accepted nomenclature for intangibles in the balance sheet) can be foisted on the self.... in this case, a privately held company of modest tangible assets. Non-profits can have a much higher ratio of intangibles:tangibles in their books.​

    "On Acknowledgement" thread of @Rihana make me think of how Amreeki born desi children are raised like most other local middle class children in saying "Thank you". When a potluck auntiji gives a gift (a toffee, for example), the child would take it, and try to walk away.
    Mummy would stop the child and say:
    Mum: Now... now... what do you say to the nice auntiji ?
    Child: huh ?
    Mum: Come now... we know what to say to the aunty who gave the chocolate.
    Child: oh... thank you ?
    Mum: good girl... now give Auntiji a kiss.

    [At this point the Amreeki child may curse her fate, and comply.... OR... do what the child in the video (below) does... and back away]


    But still saying Thank You all the way..

    That link is "cropped" to just display Lyndon Johnson's quote.​

    The decluttering of life in the Marie Kondo Way involves holding the item in your hand, and asking yourself:
    Does it spark joy ?

    The Amreeki child was cordially Americanized by e.e. cummings who also bowed with 'no thanks' to the publishers who rejected his poetry collection. Not despaired, he self-published his early anthology No Thanks (1935) and dignified the act by listing all the fourteen publishing houses who snubbed the miniaturized poetry. Understanding of cummings that such eccentric writing would baffle publishers, the gratitude was still retained.

    The Amreeki kid, too, is mannered in unstinting acknowledgement that underpins our civility.
