Abstract: (VF)Dans cet article, nous avançons que les dirigeants, soucieux de maximiser la richesse des actionnaires, manipulent l'information comptable afin de transférer de la richesse de certaines parties prenantes vers les actionnaires. En particulier, la divulgation d'une image de situation financière différente de l'image fidèle permet aux dirigeants d'optimiser les bénéfices futurs, grâce à une réduction des coûts fiscaux, sociaux, et financiers et à une maximisation des revenus futurs.(VA) In this article, we argue that managers, following an objective of maximizing shareholders' wealth, manipulate accounting information to transfer wealth from other stakeholders to the benefit of shareholders. In particular, not presenting a true and fair view of the financial situation of the firm allows the managers to optimizing the future benefits through a reduction of fiscal, social and financing costs and a maximization of the future incomes.
