Dr. Sarveshwar Pande ★★★★★

A very good book, student centered and promotes serious reading.

Beskrivelse

This online textbook is a one stop resource for accounting theory. The whole field is covered in plain language.

It begins by explaining what theory is, why and how agency theory underpins accounting and how to distinguish positive from normative theories. The book covers the IASB conceptual framework and its changing emphases, how accounting standards fit within the framework, and how standards exemplify theories of regulation. Capital market theory is covered with minimal mathematics, and accounting pathologies with minimal pontification. Theories of measurement and valuation are explained. Theories of accountability are compared. CSR, sustainability and integrated accounting are evaluated. In the final chapter issues in accounting that could emerge in the next millennium are discussed.

Far more than its wordier competitors, the book aims to develop the readers' ability to think critically about accounting and be aware of its inconsistencies, assumptions and omissions.
