A Nobel Prize in Accounting?

Posted on

A weird thought came to me this morning. Why isn’t there a Nobel Prize in Accounting?

And then it occurred to me that this was absurd. What innovations have there been in accounting that could be celebrated?

And how would we know given the professions dedication to opacity?

And does the profession as it is contribute to social welfare anyway?

It was a depressing moment of perception on the state of my first profession.
