Om Regulating Capitalism?
This book charts the regulatory changes at the heart of capitalist economies; the financial reporting on financial markets. It is a unique contribution interconnecting issues both of contemporary political science and accounting research. The book contains in- depth descriptions of regulatory settings (and changes) in six countries: Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States and aims to takes a close look at drivers of change such as crises and globalization. The book also links these drivers of change with moderating institutional structures such as the legal and financial systems, but also the welfare states in place. Taken together, it shows how a trend to more transnationalization in accounting emerges but also its likely limits.
