Ray Chambers And Ernest Weinwurm - Scholars In Unison On Measurement In Accounting, Graeme Dean, Frank L. Clarke 2010 University of Mississippi

Ray Chambers And Ernest Weinwurm - Scholars In Unison On Measurement In Accounting, Graeme Dean, Frank L. Clarke

Accounting Historians Journal

Drawing on new evidence (Napier, 2002), we examine how ideas on measurement in accounting developed in the 1950s and 1960s. We show that for the question of measurement to be addressed properly, there is a need to consider the function of accounting. The analysis of private correspondence between Professors Ray Chambers (Sydney University, Australia) and the U.S.'s Ernest Weinwurm (DePaul University, Chicago) reveals that those ideas were nurtured in a way not previously disclosed. We provide unequivocal insights into how the latter, a scholar relatively unknown in accounting, mentored the former through the maturation of Chambers' accounting measurement ...

Development Of Modern Auditing Standards: The Strange Case Of Raymond Marien And The Fraud At Interstate Hosiery Mills, 1934-1937, Jan Richard Heier, Maria A. Leach-Lopez 2010 University of Mississippi

Development Of Modern Auditing Standards: The Strange Case Of Raymond Marien And The Fraud At Interstate Hosiery Mills, 1934-1937, Jan Richard Heier, Maria A. Leach-Lopez

Accounting Historians Journal

In February 1938, the police arrested Raymond Marien, a small, bookish man, for forging checks at Interstate Hosiery Mills, Inc. During the ensuing investigation, the New York Attorney General's office found that Marien had juggled the books of the corporation and that these accounting irregularities inflated Interstate Hosiery Mills' assets by $1.9 million or about 40% of the company's assets. In an irony of history, the company's external auditors, as it turned out, employed Marien. The extensive investigation conducted by the SEC into Marien's manipulations found that, save for forged checks amounting to about $2 ...


Changing Legitimacy Narratives About Professional Ethics And Independence In The 1930'S Journal Of Accountancy, Diane Roberts 2010 University of Mississippi

Changing Legitimacy Narratives About Professional Ethics And Independence In The 1930'S Journal Of Accountancy, Diane Roberts

Accounting Historians Journal

The 1930s in the U.S. were marked by an economic crisis, governmental regulatory response, and a significant audit failure. This paper examines the profession's struggle for legitimacy during these times through its choice of narratives regarding professional ethics and independence as revealed in the national professional organization's monthly, the Journal of Accountancy. Initially ethics is a state-of-mind or narrative of character was used but transitioned to a more objectively determinable narrative of technique as the decade progressed. To counter governmental regulation, the profession attempted to shift the independence discourse away from regulation of accountants to regulation of ...


Patterns Of Accounting History Literature: Movements At The Beginning Of The 21st Century, Juan Banos-Sanchez Matamoros, Fernando Gutierrez-Hidalgo 2010 University of Mississippi

Patterns Of Accounting History Literature: Movements At The Beginning Of The 21st Century, Juan Banos-Sanchez Matamoros, Fernando Gutierrez-Hidalgo

Accounting Historians Journal

This paper addresses and updates the challenge made by Carmona [2004] regarding the need to broaden the accounting history literature into periods, settings, and sectors outside those traditionally published in specialist journals. For this purpose, we review three international journals the Accounting Historians Journal; Accounting, Business & Financial History; and Accounting History and two national publications Rivista di Contabilita e Cultura Aziendali (Italy) and De Computis (Spain) over the period 2000-2008. The results show changes in the publishing patterns of accounting history research. We also explore whether non-Anglo-Saxon researchers have widened the settings, periods, and sectors studied from those of Anglo-Saxon researchers, thus ...


Market For Luca Pacioli's Summa De Arithmetica: Some Comments, Basil S. Yamey 2010 University of Mississippi

Market For Luca Pacioli's Summa De Arithmetica: Some Comments, Basil S. Yamey

Accounting Historians Journal

This paper explains why Pacioli's exposition of double-entry bookkeeping, published in his Summa of 1494, was neither an effective reference text for merchants nor a satisfactory text for their sons. In doing so, the paper contradicts some of the points made in the interesting and wide-ranging article by Sangster, Stoner, and McCarthy in the June 2008 issue of this journal.

Accounting And Financial Reporting By A Late 18th Century American Charity, Roger B. Daniels (1966-), Mike Braswell, Jesse D. Beeler 2010 University of Mississippi

Accounting And Financial Reporting By A Late 18th Century American Charity, Roger B. Daniels (1966-), Mike Braswell, Jesse D. Beeler

Accounting Historians Journal

Empirical research to date has neglected accounting and external financial reporting among 18th century American charitable institutions. Contemporary understanding of 18th century American practices is supported by evidence relating to commercial transactions primarily among colonial merchants. Our study examines the accounting and financial reporting of the Charleston Orphan House, the first municipal orphanage in America, from its inception in 1790 through its first five years of operations. The institution was established by city ordinance in 1790 which required the institution to keep a book of fair and regular accounts of all receipts and expenditures which will be subject at all ...

Transfer Pricing: Current Problems And Solutions, Ronald Wu 2010 Claremont McKenna College

Transfer Pricing: Current Problems And Solutions, Ronald Wu

CMC Senior Theses

The current problems and possible solutions surrounding United States transfer pricing regulations are discussed and studied. The schemes large multinational companies are implementing to legally evade taxes are uncovered as the financial effects to the United States Treasury and government are becoming material. The benefits for these schemes are financially advantageous for corporations as they are able to report larger profits and higher returns for investors. But this is being done at the expense of our government. Corporations are finding ways to escape the high U.S. corporate tax rate and lower their global tax liabilities by allocating income to ...


Are Family Firms More Tax Aggressive Than Non-Family Firms?, Shuping CHEN, Xia CHEN, Qiang CHENG, Terry Shevlin 2010 University of Texas at Austin

Are Family Firms More Tax Aggressive Than Non-Family Firms?, Shuping Chen, Xia Chen, Qiang Cheng, Terry Shevlin

Research Collection School Of Accountancy

Taxes represent a significant cost to the firm and shareholders, and it is generally expected that shareholders prefer tax aggressiveness. However, this argument ignores potential non-tax costs that can accompany tax aggressiveness, especially those arising from agency problems. Firms owned/run by founding family members are characterized by a unique agency conflict between dominant and small shareholders. Using multiple measures to capture tax aggressiveness and founding family presence, we find that family firms are less tax aggressive than their non-family counterparts, ceteris paribus. This result suggests that family owners are willing to forgo tax benefits to avoid the non-tax cost ...


American Economic Development, Managerial Corporate Capitalism, And The Institutional Foundations Of The Modern Income Tax, Ajay K. Mehrotra 2010 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

American Economic Development, Managerial Corporate Capitalism, And The Institutional Foundations Of The Modern Income Tax, Ajay K. Mehrotra

Articles by Maurer Faculty

Histories of the modern American income tax have generally focused on the role that social and political forces have played in the development of a new tax system. This article seeks to move beyond the social and political determinants to examine the economic factors that facilitated the adoption of the modern, graduated income tax. Without marginalizing the importance of social and political factors, the central aim of this article is to make a modest contribution to the legal and political historiography of the U.S. income tax by highlighting how changing material economic conditions afforded social groups, political reformers, and ...


Tax Collection Methods: Understanding Business Tax Collection And The Psyche Of Evasion, Kara Johnson 2010 University of Kentucky

Tax Collection Methods: Understanding Business Tax Collection And The Psyche Of Evasion, Kara Johnson

MPA/MPP Capstone Projects

“Taxes are the life-blood of government, and their prompt and certain availability an imperious need (Justice Owen J Roberts, Bull V US 295 U. S. 247 (1935))” (Scharf). Tax collection is necessary to ensure revenues are collected to fund governmental services. States are losing tax revenue for a variety of reasons; this paper explores some of the major factors causing states to lose out on tax revenue. It addresses the tax gap, or unpaid taxes due and the economic inefficiencies caused by tax evasion. It analyzes the psyche of noncompliance in an attempt to discover the most efficient manner of ...


Rethinking Collection Development In Disaster Mental Health: An ‘All Hazards’ Model, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold 2009 Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute Research Library

Rethinking Collection Development In Disaster Mental Health: An ‘All Hazards’ Model, Ardis Hanson, Claudia Dold

Claudia J. Dold

The connection between weather-related disasters and mental health is bound up in treatment, both acute and long-term, of suddenly vulnerable populations, whether they are in-place survivors, displaced persons, or refugees. The Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI) Research Library/ University of South Florida Library System has undertaken a collection focus on disaster mental health. We have re-examined the traditional models of collection development and chosen instead to frame our collection development initiative around an ‘all hazards’ model, that allows us to proceed within both a national and international framework. Our model, conceptualized in a matrix of domains ...


Spatial Variations In The Character Of Off-The-Books Entrepreneurship: Lessons From A Study Of Contrasting Districts In Moscow, Colin C. Williams 2009 University of Sheffield

Spatial Variations In The Character Of Off-The-Books Entrepreneurship: Lessons From A Study Of Contrasting Districts In Moscow, Colin C. Williams

Colin C Williams

Although there is growing recognition that many entrepreneurs start-up trading partially or wholly off-the-books, few have evaluated whether the character of this hidden enterprise culture varies spatially. To begin to do so, this paper evaluates whether and how the nature of off-the-books entrepreneurship differs across an affluent, mixed and deprived district of Moscow. Drawing upon 313 face-to-face interviews, the finding is that wholly legitimate enterprises represent just the tip of the iceberg in Moscow. Beneath the surface in all the districts is a large hidden enterprise culture. However, off-the-books entrepreneurship in the affluent district is comprised more of registered businesses ...


Explaining The Off-The-Books Enterprise Culture Of Ukraine: Reluctant Or Willing Entrepreneurship?, Colin C. Williams 2009 University of Sheffield

Explaining The Off-The-Books Enterprise Culture Of Ukraine: Reluctant Or Willing Entrepreneurship?, Colin C. Williams

Colin C Williams

In recent years, there has been a growing realisation that beyond the realm of legitimate entrepreneurship is a large hidden enterprise culture composed of entrepreneurs conducting some or all of their trade off-the-books. Until now, however, few have evaluated how many entrepreneurs start-up their ventures trading off-the-books and why they do so. Reporting face-to-face interviews conducted in Ukraine during 2005-06 with 331 entrepreneurs, the finding is not only that the vast majority (90%) operate partially or wholly off-the-books but also that they are not all driven by necessity and as a last resort and survival strategy into entrepreneurship. Revealing how ...
