Who else will tell us - the owners and employees, the investors and the creditors, the state and the citizens - what if there are no accounting professionals? And who will confirm that what accounting professionals are saying is true, if not auditors? Both of these professions are the backbone of the market economy, providing the most important - resource - information needed to make decisions.
