Abstract

In order to achieve a satisfactory solution to the current problems in reporting procedures, it would be necessary to conduct intensive discussions and build a consensus on these issues. However, such a discussion should not be focused on value alone, as the case used to be in the past on the basis of the English concept of ‘fair value’. Admittedly, it is rather difficult to argue against a ‚fair’ valuation. It is possible that fair value will re-emerge in the future more strongly as ‘current exit value’. It seems indispensable to include the economics of regulation more intensively into corporate practice and research.
