Executive Compensation and Financial Accounting provides research perspectives on the interface between financial reporting
and disclosure policies and executive compensation. In particular, it focuses on two important dimensions: * the effects of
compensation-based incentives on executives' financial accounting and disclosure choices, and * the role of financial reporting
and income tax regulations in shaping executive compensation practices. Executive Compensation and Financial Accounting examines
the key dimensions of the relation between financial accounting and executive compensation. Specifically, the authors examine
the extent to which compensation plans create incentives for executives to make particular financial reporting and disclosure
choices. They also examine the extent to which accounting regulation creates incentives for firms to design particular compensation
plans for their executives.
