Make a Difference
By Edith Orenstein, FEI Financial Reporting Blog -
I’ve been waiting for this day (my birthday) to provide a link to John Ondrasik’s song, 100 years. Gives you something to think about. Ondrasik, who has performed under the name Five for Fighting, is also the founder of www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com, which encourages people to make a difference through supporting charities. Another way to help shape the direction of history is by exercising your right to vote. And, for followers of this blog, you can make a difference by putting your views and analysis into the hands of policy makers by filing a comment letter on proposed rules, such as FASB’s Exposure Documents, IASB’s [Documents] Open to Comment, SEC’s Proposed Rules and Other Orders and Notices, and PCAOB’s Proposed Rules. PCAOB is slated to vote tomorrow (Oct. 21) on whether to release a new proposal for public comment on the auditor's assessment of and response to risk. And, one of the most watched for proposals is SEC’s upcoming proposal on the IFRS roadmap, which the Commission voted to release earlier this year.
