The Financial Crisis Impact on Institutions and Accounting Practices Internationally

Synopsis

This monograph sets out a framework for the analysis of institutional environments and accounting practices around the world during the pre-crisis period, followed by an examination of the impact of the crisis. It scrutinizes the changing roles of debt and equity markets and banking; the shift in accounting practices and capital financing choices due to the economic downturn; and the lessons that can be obtained from the financial crisis around the world, while considering the institutional architecture of business environments there. This is especially timely work in the light of the latest rise of nationalistic sentiments in different economies around the world that seems to replace ongoing for a long time global market integration.

Work in progress, planed to be published by Rutledge, Spring 2019.
