At the start of an exam, a student openly wondered, "But Professor Einstein, this is the same exam question as last year!" To which the great man supposedly replied, "Correct, young man, but we need to find new answers."

ABSTRACT:
The crisis in supply versus demand for doctorally qualified faculty members in accounting is well documented (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business [AACSB] 2003a, 2003b; Plumlee et al. 2005; Leslie 2008). Little progress has been made in addressing this serious challenge facing the accounting academic community and the accounting profession. Faculty time, institutional incentives, the doctoral model itself, and research diversity are noted as major challenges to making progress on this issue. The authors propose six recommendations, including a new, extramurally funded research program aimed at supporting doctoral students that functions similar to research programs supported by such organizations as the National Science Foundation and other science-based funding sources. The goal is to create capacity, improve structures for doctoral programs, and provide incentives to enhance doctoral enrollments. This should lead to an increased supply of graduates while also enhancing and supporting broad-based research outcomes across the accounting landscape, including auditing and tax. ©2009 American Accounting Association

June 5, 2013 reply to a long thread by Bob Jensen

Hi Steve,

As usual, these AECM threads between you, me, and Paul Williams resolve nothing to date. TAR still has zero articles without equations unless such articles are forced upon editors like the Kaplan article was forced upon you as Senior Editor. TAR still has no commentaries about the papers it publishes and the authors make no attempt to communicate and have dialog about their research on the AECM or the AAA Commons.

I do hope that our AECM threads will continue and lead one day to when the top academic research journals do more to both encourage (1) validation (usually by speedy replication), (2) alternate methodologies, (3) more innovative research, and (4) more interactive commentaries.

I remind you that Professor Basu's essay is only one of four essays bundled together in Accounting Horizons on the topic of how to make accounting research, especially the so-called Accounting Sciience or Accountics Science or Cargo Cult science, more innovative.

The four essays in this bundle are summarized and extensively quoted at http://www.cs.trinity.edu/~rjensen/temp/AccounticsDamn.htm#Essays 

I will try to keep drawing attention to these important essays and spend the rest of my professional life trying to bring accounting research closer to the accounting profession.

I also want to dispel the myth that accountics research is harder than making research discoveries without equations. The hardest research I can imagine (and where I failed) is to make a discovery that has a noteworthy impact on the accounting profession. I always look but never find such discoveries reported in TAR.

The easiest research is to purchase a database and beat it with an econometric stick until something falls out of the clouds. I've searched for years and find very little that has a noteworthy impact on the accounting profession. Quite often there is a noteworthy impact on other members of the Cargo Cult and doctoral students seeking to beat the same data with their sticks. But try to find a practitioner with an interest in these academic accounting discoveries?

Our latest thread leads me to such questions as:

  1. Is accounting research of inferior quality relative to other disciplines like engineering and finance?

     
  2. Are there serious innovation gaps in academic accounting research?

     
  3. Is accounting research stagnant?

     
  4. How can accounting researchers be more innovative?

     
  5. Is there an "absence of dissent" in academic accounting research?

     
  6. Is there an absence of diversity in our top academic accounting research journals and doctoral programs?

     
  7. Is there a serious disinterest (except among the Cargo Cult) and lack of validation in findings reported in our academic accounting research journals, especially TAR?

     
  8. Is there a huge communications gap between academic accounting researchers and those who toil teaching accounting and practicing accounting?

     
  9. Why do our accountics scientists virtually ignore the AECM and the AAA Commons and the Pathways Commission Report?
    http://www.cs.trinity.edu/~rjensen/temp/AccounticsDamn.htm

One fall out of this thread is that I've been privately asked to write a paper about such matters. I hope that others will compete with me in thinking and writing about these serious challenges to academic accounting research that never seem to get resolved.

Thank you Steve for sometimes responding in my threads on such issues in the AECM.

Respectfully,
Bob Jensen

 

 


My Life Beyond the Numbers by James Don Edwards

On June 14, 2010 (today) I opened an unexpected package from James Don Edwards that totally surprised me.
The book inside the package was entitled My Life Beyond the Numbers (ISBN 978-0-615-36164-2, March 2010)

James Don is the best "boss" I ever had --- while I was a newly minted assistant professor at Michigan State University. In spite of my youth and inexperience he gave me two doctoral seminars to teach, possibly because I was an accountics researcher in those days when accountics research was being revived after over 60 years of dormancy. James Don was never an accountics professor, but he anticipated how accountics would become dominant in academic accountancy henceforth and perhaps forever more ---
http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/395wpTAR/Web/TAR395wp.htm

You can read the Hall of Fame entry for James Don Edwards at Click Here
http://fisher.osu.edu/departments/accounting-and-mis/the-accounting-hall-of-fame/membership-in-hall/james-don-edwards/

His many honors and awards include an honorary doctorate from the University of Paris.

In 1998, he was invited to the Georgia House of Representatives to hear a resolution honoring him and recognizing his contributions to the field of accounting and the State of Georgia. The University of Georgia Foundation recently established a Chair of Corporate Accounting Policy in his honor ---
http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/1997_98/fulltext/hr738.htm

One of his areas of expertise is the history of the accounting profession in the United States.

I've not yet read his latest book I just received, but I'm looking forward to chapters like "Oxford and Sir Edward Heath."
Don was on a first name basis with some of the most powerful people in the world.
He also served tirelessly for the American Accounting Association, including serving as its President 1970-71.

During a period when the University of Michigan (in the shadows of Bill Paton)  totally dominated Michigan State University in doctoral programs and faculty research in accountancy, James Don raised the money and recruited some the outstanding doctoral students in our history. To name a few who joined the Academy at MSU we have Roger Hermanson, Gene Comiskey, Paul Pacter, Bill Kinney, Bob May, Jim McKeown, Barry Cushing, and others too numerous to mention here. And there were of course other outstanding faculty and doctoral students he recruited for the University of Georgia.

I am proud to consider James Don Edwards one of my very best friends. I wish he and Clara an long and happy life, and I especially wish Clara a total successful recovery from her new total hip. Her lovely picture is on the cover of the book alongside her partner in life. Clara is an original Iron Magnolia.

The Secret of Why Bob Jensen Became an Accounting Professor and Not a Practicing CPA
Nursing Schools Should Warn Students About Grueling Hours

Nursing schools should do a better job preparing students for the grueling hours, often unrealistic expectations, and lack of respect that await them when they enter the work force, says an article scheduled for publication today in the July/August issue of Nursing Outlook.
MIT's Technology Review, July 27, 2009 --- http://chronicle.com/article/Nursing-Schools-Should-Warn/47468/

Jensen Comment
Although I always mentioned the long hours faced by newly-hired CPAs, especially in tax season, I'm not sure I ever said enough about it to a point that I did not have some (I like to think only a few students) who really became upset over the long hours and pressures in CPA firms. Perhaps this has changed somewhat, but one of the problems that remains is that many newly-hired students have to travel much more than they expected as either CPA auditors or corporate internal  auditors. When out of town there's a tendency to work days and nights, sometimes in an effort to shorten the time on the road away from home.

Truth Time
When I became a CPA and worked for the largest accounting firm in Denver, I was also an avid, and unmarried, snow skier. I was even tempted to become a ski bum except that my entire family history made me fearful of living without income and security. I was also getting an MBA at the University of Denver and watched my professors work what seemed to me like 12 hours a week while living in the security of tenure for life. This seemed perfect for becoming having my ski time and still having guaranteed income for life.

I even came to a point where I had an ink pen poised above a contract at Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado where I could get a tenure track position, in those days, with only a MBA-CPA credential. As I lowered the pen, I casually asked the Dean how far it was from Gunnison to Aspen (which looked to be less than 30 miles on the map). He said it depended upon whether it was summer or winter. The pass was closed in the winter such that the shortest route was over 200 miles by going around through Leadville.

I dropped the pen and decided to accept a full-ride scholarship that Stanford University had offered me a few days earlier to enter the accounting doctoral program. The rest is history. I skied some while at Stanford, but after I got married at the dissertation stage of my studies, I gave up skiing and chasing wild women. More importantly I discovered that being a professional teacher and researcher was more fun and challenging than being a ski bum.

It's probably a very good thing that I gave up being a ski bum. I always tended to be a bit of a hot dog skier who skied one or two notches above my real farm boy ability. Undoubtedly I would be dead or paralyzed if I'd truly become a ski bum.

Interestingly as a professor and even as a retired professor I've worked longer hours year in and year out that most practicing CPAs. But this is a labor of love and a challenge to the mind and great relief from the boredom of leisure time.

About 20 years ago I recorded a sloppy audio file about becoming a professor --- http://www.cs.trinity.edu/~rjensen/academ01.wav

In your dreams of retirement, which of these scenes appeals to you the most?
My choice in Picture Number 1 (the techie toilet) at http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/NHcottage/NHcottage.htm
At the above site I discuss things to consider in your retirement life, including Mark Jensen vs. Bob Jensen

It is a salutary discipline to consider the vast number of books that are written, the fair hopes with which their authors see them published, and the fate which awaits them. What chance is there that any book will make its way among the multitude? And the successful books are but the successes of a season. Heaven knows what pains the author has been at, what bitter experiences he has endured and what heartache suffered, to give some chance reader a few hours' relaxation or to while away the tedium of a journey. And if I may judge from the reviews, many of these books are well and carefully written; much thought has gone to their composition; to some even has been given the anxious labor of a lifetime. The moral I draw is that the writer should seek his reward in the pleasure of his work and in release from the burden of his thought; and, indifferent to aught else, care nothing for praise or censure, failure or success.

Interview with Mary Joyce by Ben Heine --- http://snipurl.com/mjdigitalsociety

Therein lies the real trouble. Learning is labor. We're selling the fantasy that technology can change that. It can’t. No technology ever has. Gutenberg’s press only made it easier to print books, not easier to read and understand them.
Peter Berger, "The Land of iPods and Honey," The Irascible Professor, February 26, 2007 ---  at http://irascibleprofessor.com/comments-02-26-07.htm

I wonder whether in the rush to celebrate the virtues of openness and the fun of group learning, we’re forgetting the virtues inherent in learning in private, in reclusive Walden-like settings.
Luke Fernandez, Weber State University as quoted by Josh Fischman, Chronicle of Higher Education July 29, 2008 --- http://chronicle.com/wiredcampus/index.php?id=3202&utm_source=wc&utm_medium=en

In one century we went from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to offering remedial English in college.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

The National Debt Clock --- http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/
At the above site it appears to be a fixed number.
But now hit your refresh button to see how much it's changed in just a few seconds.
At 9:34 a.m. on September 23, 2008 it was $9,734,361,140,920.08 trillion
At 9:35 a.m. on September 23, 2008 it was $9,734,365, 595,383.82 trillion
The annual amount of interest per year on the above number at 6% is $584,061,935,723.03 billion
This translates to well over a million dollars a minute.
There's a greatly increased chance in 2008 that U.S. debt will receive a lowered credit rating, which will greatly increase the cost of out national debt each minute.

But the National Debt is only the amount we have actually borrowed on notes because the U.S. needed cash to pay current bills due. Every accountant knows that the unbooked liabilities can be much, much larger because we've not yet needed to currently borrow the money to pay bills that are coming in to us or our grandchildren in the future.

Because U.S. Government accounting is in such chaos (the GAO will not even sign off on its annual audits of the Pentagon), nobody on earth really knows what our total liabilities are. The former top accountant in the Federal government estimates that the total is well in excess of $55+ trillion (present value discounted) before the 2008 deficit is factored in --- http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/2008Bailout.htm#NationalDebt

A huge proportion of our National Debt is held by our friends in the Middle East and Asia. If you plan to watch that 1981 movie entitled “Rollover,” bring along a crying towel --- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rollover_(film)
OPEC could probably put the U.S. out of business in an hour if it was so inclined.
And in doing so it would not have to manipulate oil supplies or prices.

Another trillion for a bailout of the Men in Black is not trivial relative to the nation’s booked debt of nearly $10 trillion.

The CAlCPA Tax Listserv

September 4, 2008 message from Scott Bonacker [lister@bonackers.com]
Scott has been a long-time contributor to the AECM listserv (he's a techie as well as a practicing CPA)

I found another listserve that is exceptional -

CalCPA maintains http://groups.yahoo.com/taxtalk/  and they let almost anyone join it.
Jim Counts, CPA is moderator.

There are several highly capable people that make frequent answers to tax questions posted there, and the answers are often in depth.

Scott

Scott forwarded the following message from Jim Counts

Yes you may mention info on your listserve about TaxTalk. As part of what you say please say [... any CPA or attorney or a member of the Calif Society of CPAs may join. It is possible to join without having a free Yahoo account but then they will not have access to the files and other items posted.

Once signed in on their Yahoo account go to http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/TaxTalk/ and I believe in top right corner is Join Group. Click on it and answer the few questions and in the comment box say you are a CPA or attorney, whichever you are and I will get the request to join.

Be aware that we run on the average 30 or move emails per day. I encourage people to set up a folder for just the emails from this listserve and then via a rule or filter send them to that folder instead of having them be in your inbox. Thus you can read them when you want and it will not fill up the inbox when you are looking for client emails etc.

We currently have about 830 CPAs and attorneys nationwide but mainly in California.... ]

Please encourage your members to join our listserve.

If any questions let me know.

My distant cousin Bob Overn clued me into the Bing aerial view maps. These are great!!

Let me walk you through an example.
I have to take Erika to the New England Baptist Hospital next week for more tests on her broken back.

I tried this for the address in Baltimore where my friend Barry Rice lives.
I then got a good view of his townhouse.

I found that it's not always possible to get a Bing map to come up for an address
For example, the Cannon Mountain Ski Resort mailing address is
9 Franconia Notch State Park, Franconia, NH 03580
Using the above address I do not get an option for a Bing map
But you can use the Franconia Hardware address
334 Main St., Franconia 03580

When I tried this on our cottage I got a map but our cottage was hidden beneath the clouds on the day this aerial view photo was taken
190 Sunset Hill Road, Sugar Hill, NH 03586

The Bing areal views are photographs that do not change from day to day such that you will still get a cloudy view of Sugar Hill even if we're having a clear day.

 

*****************

Now let's try a great Microsoft Silverlight Map Application
I think you have to have the free Silverlight installation for this one ---
http://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/get-started/install/default.aspx

Then go to
Microsoft Virtual Earth Amazing 3D Modeling Fly Over Aerial View Bing.com
http://www.microsoft.com/maps/isdk/silverlight/ 
 

I then move about with my mouse pointer and zoom with the wheel of my mouse.
Wow --- I can zoom in on the New England Baptist Hospital without having to enter an address (as long as I know where it's located in the Boston area)

"Bing's Travel Search, So Much Better Than Google, Gets Even Better," by Marshall Kirkpatrick, ReadWriteWeb, February 25, 2011 ---
http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/bings_travel_search_so_much_better_than_google_get.php

Google does almost nothing interesting in travel search. Bing offers a much more compelling travel search experience and today added a new little feature that makes me want to use it even more.

Search on Bing for the phrase "fly to..." and the name of a major destination city and you will now see an automatic display of the best dates to fly from where you are to that place, with the lowest price for a round trip ticket and advice about whether the price is likely to go up or down if you waited to buy the ticket later. It's really cool.

"3 Higher Ed Lessons from Netflix's "House of Cards," by Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed, February 6, 2013 ---

Jensen Comment
Without intending to puff out my chest, I think things that add value to my Jensen blog and AECM posts are the "Jensen Comments." These add value because of my memory of things posted in the past that I relate to current postings. These add value on occasion I question the assumptions, analysis, and conclusions of a tidbit written by someone else. I can never go so far as to create my own "episodes" in the Netflix sense, but I do try to be more than a forwarder of tidbits.

Of course Netflix is taking the concept of creative episodes to an entirely new level.

Examples of some of my modest "episodes" are as follows:

How Non-Scientific Granulation Can Improve Scientific Accountics

Granulation
Obviously correlation is not causation, but don't suggest this too loudly to referees of The Accounting Review ---
An enormous problem with accountics science, and finance in general,  is that these sciences largely confine themselves to databases where it's only possible to establish correlations and not causes, because zero causal information is contained in the big databases they purchase rather than collect themselves ---

I see from my house by the side of the road
By the side of the highway of life,
The men who press with the ardor of hope,
The men who are faint with the strife,
But I turn not away from their smiles and tears,
Both parts of an infinite plan-
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.
Sam Walter Foss (1858-1911)
