Read the Event Summary.

Robert Herz has presided over one of the most productive periods in the FASB’s history, including the issuance of a long-awaited rule on stock-option expensing. Looking ahead, the expected introduction of international financial reporting standards in 2005 is likely to herald a major step forward in streaming practices. Mr. Herz, who has served as a part-time member of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), has been steadfast in representing U.S. interests in the IASB’s move to a global standard. He shares his views on what lies ahead, including efforts to globalize and harmonize accounting standards, and gives his perspective on regulatory reform in the global markets.
