Lobbying on Accounting Standards ( Self opinion and thinking)

ORDER THE PAPER NOW

“Several academic studies ….have illustrated how the consideration of the potential
economic consequences of proposed accounting standards motivated particular
organisations to lobby regulators either in opposition to particular accounting standards or
in support. This lobbying attempts to shape the regulations in a manner that will maximise
the expected positive, or minimise the expected negative, economic consequences from the
new accounting regulations for the lobbying organisations.” Deegan 2014, p. 88

The Chair of the Australian Accounting Standards Board has commissioned you to assist with

FORMAT
A report format is required for this assignment. In a report, the Executive Summary should
provide an overview of the whole report, including any recommendations. This is a ‘thinking’
assignment and what is expected is the personal view of individual students’ based on research
and the evidence that has been sourced. Further, an assignment which presents more quotes than
constructive analysis and argument may be heavily penalised.
