The EU and the United States are considering mandatory auditor rotation. Some have opined that this will lead to nomadic accountants, auditors who move every five years in search of green fields of audit clients to graze upon.
Bob Jensen (Trinity University retired professor) is a prolific web surfer who posts his finds on AECM, the e-mail listserv for accounting professors. His finds relate mostly to accounting.
Jensen has occasionally wondered about lifestyle issues for auditors forced into a nomadic life. Today he suggests that housing issues can be solved by building a Mongolian Ger (call a Yert in Russian). The following Dan Grossman video shows how a Ger can be built in about one hour.
But what about the inside? Could it possibly be spacious enough for the 21st century auditor and all his/her toys?
However, we all know that large firm auditors stay in luxury hotel accomodations:
I ask my auditor readers. Where would you rather live, Ger or luxury hotel room?
