On August 16, 2018, the International Accounting Standards Board (the Board) posted a speech by IASB® member Ann Tarca, who gave a lecture during a conference at the University of Western Australia in Perth.

Her speech entitled "Check the numbers: Accounting information still matters to you, me and investors around the world" covered (1) the relationship between accounting information and share prices, (2) whether current accounting practices and economic changes have diminished the role for accounting information, and (3) how the IASB is addressing issues raised by those who consider accounting has lost its relevance.

Review the full version of Ms. Tarca’s speech is available on the Board's website.
