Accounting in Conflict by
Publication Date: 2016-11-18
Global forces and accountability once again converge in this volume, illustrating the significant and multifaceted nature of the role of accounting in societies. The accounting discipline in its numbers, its silences, its privileging of select classifications over others, it is continually constructing knowledge, cultivates meaning, and impacts public policy in the intersection of socio-political-economic realms. The research in this volume responds to calls for examining accounting as an interdisciplinary role in neoliberal governance by examining migration, race, gender, class and the creation of the 'other'. Each paper uniquely contributes toward significantly exploring accounting's role in disenfranchising populations while identifying participants actualized and potential role in emancipatory struggles. By recognizing marginalized groups embedded power rather than casting them as victims, the authors reject an inevitability of widening inequalities and forms of violence to world populations. Rather these critical accounting researchers seriously tackle the task of transformation, providing pathways for thinking differently and aspiring for change.

Behavioral Accounting by
Publication Date: 2013-01-01
Mainstream accounting research is dogmatising an image of efficient capital markets in which investors make rational decisions by evaluating all risks and returns of alternatives. In order to make such decisions, investors interpret unbiased information (which is equally available to all market participants) and select the alternative with the highest return or lowest risk. Behavioural accounting is challenging such simplistic assumptions. It is concerned with the explanation and prediction of human behaviour in an accounting context such as the usefulness of financial statement data, materiality judgements, decision effects of alternative accounting procedures, and the impact of culture and language on the interpretation and application of accounting pronouncements. This book gives insights into the newest developments in behavioural accounting, and provides evidence that behavioural aspects cannot be ignored in the interpretation and application of accounting information.
