Two years ago, The American Assembly, an arm of Columbia University in New York, began a project to determine whether America's current accounting model was able to deal effectively with contemporary business practices.

Members of the project steering committee include IASC Foundation Chairman Paul Volcker and IASB Chairman Sir David Tweedie. The project included numerous commissioned research papers and a national meeting from 13-15 November 2003 in which Mr. Volcker and IASB Vice Chairman Tom Jones participated. The report of that project, titled The Future of the Accounting Profession, has now been published. Click to Download the Report (PDF 836k) from the American Assembly website.
