the lost book of remedies pdf
This book began as a series of lesson notes for a financial accounting theory course of the Certified General Accountants' Association of anada. The lesson notes grew out of a conviction that we have learned a great de 1 about the role of financial accounting and reporting in our society from sec ities markets and information economics-based research conducted over ma y years, and that financial accounting theory comes into its own when we for ally recognize the information asymmetries that pervade business relationships. The challenge was to organize this large body of resea ch into a unifying framework and to explain it in such a manner that professio ally oriented stu- dents would both understand and accept it as relevant to the financial accounting environment and ultimately to their own professional careers. This book seems to have achieved its goals. In addition t being part of the CGA program of professional studies for a number of years, it has been exten- sively class-tested in financial accounting theory courses at the University of Waterloo, 01ieen's University, and several other universities, both at the senior undergraduate and professional Master's levels. I am encoura ed by the fact that, by and large, the students comprehend the material and, i deed, are likely to object if the instructor follows it too closely in class. Despite its theoretical orientation, the book does not ign re the institution- al structure of financial accounting and standard setting.
