    ACCTMIS 8890 - Econometric Analysis of Accounting Choice

    As econometrics suggests we combine theory and data to explore welfare implications of various accounting choices such as disclosure policy. These are causal effects, in other words, the effect of manipulating accounting while holding everything else constant. Ignorable treatment, instrumental variable, Bayesian network, and more generally, structural causal modeling (SCM) identification and inference strategies are explored.
