ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL REPORTING IN A CHANGING ENVIRONMENT: HISTORICAL AND THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVES

Stanley Salvary ()

Economic History from EconWPA

Abstract: Over time, a changing environment has produced changes in the types of accounting information and in the dissemination of such information (financial reporting). Certain changes in the environment do impel changes in accounting. This paper examines various theoretical issues in accounting in a historical setting and provides some insight on the manner in which the accounting profession has responded to problems.

Keywords: evolution of the manorial system; manorial revenue; the manorial establishment; the joint stock company; 'business reporting'; financial profitability; static theory and dynamic theory. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
