Accounting Policies Standards and Performance in Relation to Global Reporting Initiative


Stigler’s ‘private interest theory’ proposes that regulatory bodies (including accounting standard setters) are made up of individuals who are self-interested, and these individuals will introduce regulation that best serves their own self-interest. If regulators acted in accordance with the predictions provided by private interest theory of regulation, what is the likely of the introduction of regulation aimed at reducing the problems associated with climate change, particularly if business corporations opposed such regulations?
