Description

The World About Us 2017 – Individual Lectures

Prof. David Collison

What are the economic and social consequences of traditional accounting practice? This lecture will examine the “varieties of capitalism” and their relevance for the health of society as measured by a range of social indicators. The role of accounting, finance, company law and corporate governance traditions in approaches to socio-economic organisation will be considered. David Collison is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Dundee, having retired as Professor of Accounting and Society in 2015. His research has included aspects of social and environmental accounting, with a focus latterly on international comparisons of societal well-being, and the significance of the values implicit in Anglo-American accounting and finance practice.
