Fully updated and revised to include IFRS materials and problems, Financial Accounting 8E explores important accounting concepts from an economic perspective.

on management decision-making.
• Economic Factors: Over 10,000 relevant references to actual events and real companies.
• Integrated Questions for Discussion and Review: End of Chapter Questions for Discussion and Review are strategically
placed in separate boxes within each chapter, immediately after the coverage of the concepts they refer to.
• Real-World End-of-Chapter Exercises and Problems: Several end-of-chapter Exercises and Problems ask students to
respond to real-world information or situations.
• Ethics In Action: Located at the end of each chapter, an ethical dilemma and relevant, open-ended questions drawn
from the examples of actual companies challenge students' critical-thinking abilities.
• Two Comprehensive Case Studies: Presented at the end of Chapter's 8 and 14, these thorough case studies provide a
timely, well-placed opportunity to examine the real-world application of accounting principles in action.
• Measurement Issues: Cash and accrual statements are treated as equally important, with the statement of cash flows
covered throughout the text.
