Frank Clark and Graeme Dean with Matthew Egan



177 pages




The prologue's first sentence: "Increasingly, the modern corporation is unaccountable, ungovernable." Intended for advanced students and scholars of accounting, business, law, and finance, this book presents analysis and "make-over" ideas. The authors are accounting scholars affiliated with the U. of Sydney, Australia, and this study draws on their accounting and auditing experiences over several decades as well as reports of failed companies, takeover dilemmas, and employees left without payments for entitlements, among other materials. They contend that "the modern corporation, especially in its present holding/subsidiary form, may well be nearing its use-by date." ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
