How will statement readers reconcile the differences between firms who opt to use GAAP vs. those who use IFRS during this period of transition?
How should educators incorporate IFRS into the accounting curriculum?

Do existing differences between IFRS and GAAP adversely impact global markets?
Are US companies prepared for IFRS compliance?
