Essay 1: Interesting Accounting Topics - MindMeister Mind Map
The application of scientific methodology to interesting accounting topics has not only gained the respect of economists, it has produced some robust empirical results which were previously unknown (to me at least). An example is the result that the higher the leverage of a firm the more likely it is to use accounting procedures which increase the present value of reported earnings. Such results, together with the insights produced by the analysis, suggest that the current thrust of economics-based accounting research will provide a better explanation for accounting practice. If it does, I expect practitioners to be more actively involved in the accounting research process.
