The chapter commenced by exploring some empirical evidence that suggests that accountants and accounting students do not seem to be as morally developed as we might expect them, or at least like them, to be. However, we noted that concern over members’ ethical competencies does not seem to be isolated to the accounting profession. There appears to be growing concern among the established professions in general over the ethical proclivities of doctors, lawyers and engineers as well as accountants.
However, the worry over the nature and impact of accounting education persists (Williams 2003). Low and colleagues (2008), for example, lament the continuing inability of accounting and business education to prepare accountants for the ethical capacities they require to engage with complex ethical issues. And Beggs and Dean (2006) explain that the debate continues post Enron as to whether the best way to deal with the issues is via legislation or education. 3 Your own experience of accounting education If you are reading this book, the chances are you will already have some experience of accounting education – perhaps at university, or as part of a professional course.
THE ETHICS OF ACCOUNTANTS AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS Post Enron, the accounting profession has been going through something of a crisis (see, for example, Low et al. 2008). However, the accounting profession is no stranger to scandal. There are many historical examples of individual accountants who have acted unethically. For example, following extensive lobbying, the Bankruptcy Act of 1831 was amended to allow accountants to be appointed as official assignees in bankruptcy cases. One of the most prominent assignees appointed by the Lord Chancellor was a man called Peter Abbott, ‘the leading public accountant of the day’.
