Another long week. Currently, I’m grading a grand total of 1,016 exam questions offered up by 130 students (and only 20% complete), so all serious blog articles will be put off. The next posts out will be from the following topics:
- “Accounting Professors Who Blog,” In some academic areas, it is almost mandatory for professors to blog (i.e., Law). Why is it then that there are only nine blogs by accounting professors, and only six of those are American. I can’t get to all of the things I’d like to read about.
- A review of Niemeier’s keynote address to the NYSSCPA conference on PCAOB. He was kind enough to send it to me. Eventually, I’ll try to put together all points made by the six principal critics of IFRS in the USA.
- A review of two pieces by Cara Patterson of the NYSSCPA e-zine Trusted Professional,
- An article in which I examine the original dream of IFRS and the nightmare it has become.
- General thoughts on my job search. If you have a need for an accounting professor, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- I have not even weighed in on Congress’s intent to have the final say on fair value accounting (and the implications of this for IFRS). I can’t imagine any more devastating turn of events for IFRS than to have Congress get involved in tinkering with individual accounting rules.
If you would like for me to consider additional topics, please e-mail me or leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
I appreciate that readership is up to about 150 on the days I add an article, and about 75 on the off days. If you like this blog, then please pass the word.
