Quotations: “I write to stimulate professional and student thinking. My topics are current issues of import to financial executives. During the writing process, I develop a testable hypothesis, and then I gather empirical data to test that hypothesis. I am inspired by an interest in extending the frontiers of my chosen specialty — international accounting.”
