About some phrase in a news story:
"The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company said on Wednesday that it expected to restate as much as $100 million in earnings dating back to 1998 because of a series of accounting and billing errors."
Does "earnings dating back to 1998" mean 1) earnings received in 1998 alone, or 2) earnings received since 1998?
Welcome to the forums, choktar.
2) is correct.
