International Accounting

I would like the term paper on International accounting. Please add a works cited page as well.Each student will be responsible for a term paper on either international or social/environmental/sustainability accounting. So, you can choose one topic between the two areas. The paper must have no more than 5 double spaced (normal font) pages. The paper must be referenced using the social science reference style, (i.e. Radebaugh and Gray 1997) in the body of the paper and then a complete listing in the bibliography. You must use sources in addition to the materials on reserve. If you use internet sources make sure they are either refereed or from an official body such as government or quasi-governmental source. Your essay will be evaluated based on whether it identifies and evaluates all important evidence and addresses existing or potential consequences. The paper is due November 19th. If the paper is late for any reason you will be penalized and the longer it is late the greater the detriment.  Do not wait for the last minute to do the paper. Also plagiarism will result in a zero for the assignment. Please hand in 2 copies of your paper. One will be used for department assessment purposes.International AccountingThe assignment is to compare some aspect of financial accounting (e.g. Disclosure, Reporting Practices, Measurement or specific topics–e.g.-Goodwill) of two countries. One of the countries needs to be in the Anglo-American group, but not the U.S. (Canada, Great Britain, Australia or New Zealand). The other must be outside the Anglo-American group (e.g. Germany, Japan, France, China, Argentina, etc.). What you are to do is to explain why there is a difference based on cultural aspects. To help you with the cultural aspects I have uploaded two key articles, which may serve you as initial readings, on differences in international accounting systems (Please check the pdf files uploaded in this folder). You may, instead of comparing two countries, compare international accounting standards (as a concept or for a specific financial accounting topic) to the accounting standard in a country outside the Anglo-American group. Again, culture should be a key factor in explaining any differences.Sustainability/Environmental/Social AccountingThe second paper topic concerns the financial accounting aspects (e.g. disclosure) of sustainability/environmental/social accounting. My view of accounting is that we should be providing information about the entity’s (e.g. the corporation) impact on society. Traditional financial accounting has limited itself to certain measures of financial performance and ignored other measures. These areas of accounting attempt to fill that void. You only need to focus on one of these areas.  What I would like you to do for this topic is a little research on one of the areas of sustainability/environmental/social accounting and discuss the issues involved and implications for disclosure. Disclosure can be in annual reports or in a separate document. You need not take a pro-sustainability, etc. view. However, you need to justify whatever conclusion you reach. To help you jump start your reading on the topic, I have uploaded two more articles in this folder. You need to find sources other than the select papers I uploaded in this folder.
