Overview

In recent years, issues of business ethics, social responsibility, and accountability have been at the forefront of corporate policymaking and public concerns. Dramatic stories of abuse of stakeholder trust and outright criminal behavior at companies like Enron, Global Crossing, and Tyco have triggered a reexamination of the role of corporations in society and of the responsibilities of executives, managers, and board members--and the accountants who are supposed to watch over them. This landmark set of essays brings new clarity to the issues, as societies around the world begin to hold corporations and their leaders to higher standards of conduct. Covering a huge array of topics from white collar crime to community partnerships, whistle blowing to corporate philanthropy, and featuring insights from the world's leading academics, business leaders, and consultants, including strategy guru Michael Porter, Enron whistleblower Sherron Watkins, and famed international corporate attorney, Ira Milllstein, The Accountable Corporation provides provocative analysis, cultural and historical context, and emerging solutions from the public, private, and non-profit sectors toward more responsible, ethical, and accountable business.
