Right, well I'm writing a paper that is concerned with accounting ethics. But I can't really think of any ideas to talk about. I wrote 1 page already and it covered the different accounting code of ethics. But after that I really don't know what to write about. Any ideas?

All help is really appreciated

Ethics are relative. I may think I'm the most ethical person in the world, but a Christian would think I'm going to the deepest level of hell.

I agree 100 percent, and thats why im having a tough time writing this paper. It's all subjective.

Never thought of that, thanks for the replies everyone. Am I really in the pit?

Ignore that "ethics are relative lol" stuff, this isn't a highschool philosophy paper. You could make that comment about interest though. However, the main focus of your essay should be on unethical business practices and accounting methods.

talk about things like inflating assets, deflating liabilities and debts. Over estimating income, collection of credit, etc.

Yes, but I find masturbation ethical, whereas a christian would say I'm condemned to hell for it.

Hmm. Perhaps you could add religious ethic codes and the reforms associated with the Industrial Revolution (the meatpacking industry of Chicago, as shown in The Jungle?).


EDIT: I missed the "accounting" part. I guess those won't work then, lol.
