The PCAOB has announced a Center for Economic Analysis to study the role and relevance of the audit in capital formation and investor protection. In particular, the Center will provide information to the PCAOB on how economic theory, analysis, and tools can be better used to enhance its effectiveness.

The Center will be operational in early 2014 and will be directed by economist and professor, Mr. Luigi Zingales of the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. It plans to host a conference in 2014 to discuss economic research relating to audits in the capital markets.

For additional information, please see the press release on the PCAOB's Web site.
