Abstract

This commentary reflects the views of a panel of six experts tasked with writing an essay on the most incorrect beliefs of accounting experts. The title provides ample motivation for this discussion – to document the views of some thought leaders in accounting research on a seldom-debated and mostly ignored issue – incorrect beliefs. While each essay offers a thoughtful message on its own, in combination they reflect an even stronger view, and offer sound advice for accountants of all stripes and persuasions.
