These short stories are very weel written to invoke the thought processes of
ethical accounting. Although there are no comments from professors, these do
help with the possibility of daily ethical choices. it is very though provoking
to say the least. Well done!

The 10 short cases are based on real world senarios that accountants very well
might face. The cases are well written and address tax, banruptcy, forensic
accounting and auditing issues and no doubt could be used to generate lively
class discussion. No instructor teaching notes are provided. Goals,
objectives, prerequsite knowldege have not been included. Most cases end with
a single question being posed, something like "What should Mr. or Ms. X do?"
