Critical Thinking Question:
Background: At its London Summit in 2009, after the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2008, the G20 proposed a number of strategies to strengthen financial supervision and regulation. These included a call to accounting standard setters “to work urgently with supervisors and regulators to improve standards on valuation and provisioning and achieve a single set of high-quality global accounting standards” (BBC News, 2009, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7979606.stm ).
Response: The International Accounting Standards Committee Foundation responded to this call with a letter to G20 participants dated 16 September 2009 (here: http://www.ifrs.org/News/Press-Releases/Pages/Trustee-letter-to-G20-participants.aspx or at Blackboard/Learning Resources/Additional Documents & Reports).
Required:
Access the G20 proposals and the IASC Foundation’s letter and address the following statement using the AREA Framework.
The pro-regulation approach of both the G20 and the IASC Foundation, while claiming to be in the public interest, is designed to support the economic agenda of powerful interest groups.
