Accounting is everywhere.

 

Accounting is everywhere, in everything we do. Nothing happens without someone counting the cost. This changes how we think about the world and how we act on it.

This website offers a glimpse into the theory and practice of accounting around the world. You will find articles on how accounting is used by corporations and governments to achieve their aims, how it impacts the lives of individuals, and how people push back. You will learn how we have used accounting in the past to get where we are, and how accounting affects where we might go next.

Cameron Graham is Professor of Accounting at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto and Past Chair of the Canadian Abilities Foundation.
