This book investigates current resistance to the ongoing change from US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). 138 countries have, thus far, adopted IFRS as a singular accounting language, while the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB), and the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB) have determined that IFRS should be adopted optionally in the United States by 2016. The book shows that IFRS should act as a singular accounting language, which will promote high transparency and a better economic position in the world financial market.

"Dr Lemus' concise yet comprehensive and rigorous work may well serve as primer to those not yet familiar with the GAAP vs IFRS discussion, as well as a "go to" guide for well-seasoned domestic and foreign practitioners navigating though the changes from GAAP to IFRS in their respective jurisdictions. Policy makers at public and private institutions, including those of higher education, large publicly traded companies and small businesses alike, as well as US Federal and State regulators should benefit from the useful insights provided by Dr.Lemus' research. Both opponents and proponents of the change from GAAP to IFRS will find this work useful in refining and framing their arguments. By providing a balanced treatment of the subject, the book work makes a timely and important contribution to promoting a constructive "rules-based" vs "principles-based" financial reporting debate." Dr Edward Recio, JD "Dr Lemus' timely book explores the fragmented nature of accounting standards. [It is an] erudite treatment of the topic by an upcoming scholar who presents a complex phenomenon in a highly enjoyable fashion. I recommend this book to practitioners and researchers interested in the macro level analysis of the accountant world. Dr Otto F. von Feigenblatt Count of Kobryn, Academician, Royal Academy of Doctors of Spain, Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, Spain "Fantastic, a must-read for all involved in international business. Dr Lemus breaks down, in easy to understand terms, the ever-complicated accounting standards!" Miguel A. Orta Professor of Entrepreneurship, Nova Southeastern University, USA
