Event description

Description

This BrainBite evening lecture will consider the important role of accounting in the history of civilization.

Often overlooked, reliance on accounting (and accountability) has played a critical role in the rise of nations and empires over the past 3,000 years, and the neglect or suppression of the importance of accounting (and accountability) has been a precursor to the decline of empires and national revolutions.
