An attempt to go beyond conventional financial accounting information


  • Josep Vallverdú


Conventional financial accounting information is slanted in favour of certain economic interests. This paper argues in favour of accounting information capturing and showing relevant aspects of the economic-social situation, and of decision-making based on it allowing for decisions to be taken with economic-social, and not purely economic-weighted, awareness.
