Many believe this is a necessity for a vital and growing global economy. In this articlethe authors tried to present the issue of convergence between US Generally Accepted AccountingPrinciples (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Adoption of IFRS(International Financial Reporting Standards) in the US undoubtedly would mark a significantchange for many US companies. It would require a shift to a more principles-based approach,place far greater reliance on management (and auditor) judgment, and spur major changes incompany processes and systems.
