Mission Impossible? Structuring and Auditing Australian Corporate Groups

Powered by Research Breakfast Series - Thursday July 15, 2010, 7.15-9.00am

The Faculty of Economics and Business invites you to attend the second Powered By Research Breakfast event for 2010 - Mission Impossible? Structuring and Auditing Australian Corporate Groups.

By highlighting recent business catastrophes such as AIG's alleged capers; Lehmann's repos; Melbourne Storm's alleged salary cap rort; the solvency dilemmas at One.Tel and the James Hardie asbestos conundrum Professor Graeme Dean, from the Discipline of Accounting, will analyse the need for commerce to have 'trust' in audited accounting information. And, how without it, there is a fine line between order and chaos.

Graeme Dean is the Chair of the Discipline of Accounting in the Faculty of Economics and Business, For nearly thirty five years, Professor Dean's research has comprised three main areas: an analysis of corporate failures and the role of accounting in those failures - as well as an analysis of optimal distributions in liquidations, public sector accounting and accounting for inflation. His latest major work (with Frank Clarke) Indecent Disclsoure: Gilding the Corporate Lily (CUP 2007) was shortlisted for the prestigious Blake Dawson Business Literature Prize for 2007.
