ABSTRACT
The article focuses on college teacher Timothy J. Fogarty, who teaches at the Case Western Reserve University's Weatherhead School of Management in Cleveland, Ohio. Fogarty is passionate about independence in accounting. He said the Enron debacle gave the accounting industry an example of how a lack of independence can be the industry's downfall. Another downfall is working accountants not keeping an eye toward academic accountants' research. Fogarty said he sees his duty as two-fold teaching accounting and instilling moral values, which Enron Corp. undermined. Fogarty said that even with the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 that requires public companies to certify their financial statements and the creation of the Public Company Oversight Board to regulate the accounting profession, he still has his concerns.
