Inaugural lecture by Professor Alan Lowe

Financial Crisis

Some limits to knowledge…

accounting and transparency

Tuesday 6 December 6.30pm in the Sumpner Lecture Theatre

The consequences of the long depression are still making themselves felt on all aspects of social and economic activity. The economic slowdown and social costs of the Financial Crisis are affecting ‘the 99%’ in, pretty well, every developed country across the world.

What has this to do with accounting?

The talk will address a very specific part of the global reaction to improving accounting and financial reporting. This will be set within the context of a broader academic debate about transparency, accountability and some concepts of what constitutes knowledge. Technically the specific issue to be addressed will be ‘Interactive Financial Reporting’.

No knowledge of the technology will be expected or required!
