Description - Following the Money by George J. Benston

The failure of Enron has pushed the issue of corporate disclosure policies in the US onto the front pages of major newspapers, into the halls of Congress and onto the agendas of key players in the regulatory community and the private sector. Only a few years ago, the Asian financial crisis of 1997 called attention to the devastating impact of disclosure failures on the world economy. Today, the increasingly multinational character of equity markets has intensified the need for systems that are global in nature. While many countries impose disclosure rules on their public corporations, differences in accounting standards, verification and enforcement across countries are introducing uncertainty and risk that inhibit cross-border movement of capital. This text focuses on the disjunction between national systems of corporate disclosure and the increasingly global character of capital markets. The authors offer recommendations for public and private decision-makers on the accounting and reporting reforms necessary to improve disclosure in international equities trading.
