Editorial Perspective

“RAR was initiated at a time when deregulation and the discipline of market forces were popularly viewed as the appropriate approaches to policy and social control of economic market activity and related accounting disclosures and measures,” noted Editor Previts. “In the 21st century, rising concern over sufficiency of market discipline and the implications for information it provides has heightened the awareness of and attention to regulatory legislation, agencies, as well as resulting measurement and disclosure matters.” He continued, “Attention has also increased on themes of government and self-regulation, making research into the processes and subjects of such regulation both timely and important.”
