>>> The case analysis in books like PAPER PROPHETS (don't buy it, just try
read it) are a politically effective way of alerting, galvanizing and

ethical, and professional malaise that will confront them. <<<

Hi Tony T:

Doesn't the force of competition tend in general to reward unethical
accountants and punish ethical ones?  I.e. the more highly paid
accountants are expected to be more "innovative" and able to "bend
the rules" wheras if one complains to associates about unethical
practices doesn't that brand someone as being not a "team player"
and subject to retaliation?

In solidarity, Jerry
