  • The first empirical research book from Japan based on the “new institutional accounting” approach
  • Investigates the differences of IFRS and local accounting standards from the viewpoint of earnings property
  • Articulates globalization and localization of accounting standards, explaining inherent characteristics of disclosure behavior by Japanese firms and diagnosing its effects on capital markets
Despite the globalization of accounting standards occurring through convergence to International Financial Reporting Standards, local accounting systems are deeply intertwined with each country’s unique institutions such as its corporate system, disclosure practices, and enforcement mechanisms. First, this book empirically analyzes the effects of globalization and localization of accounting rules on corporate behavior such as earnings management, signaling, investment behavior, and dividend payout policy. Second, the book unravels the economic consequences of disclosure based on the concept of self-disciplining enforcement such as management forecasts, environmental disclosures, and risk disclosures by Japanese firms. This volume is a step forward in understanding the link between accounting and corporate behavior based on a new institutional accounting approach.
