Representation Without Accountability?


By: Michael Lavi

The Fordham Corporate Law Center, in conjunction with KStone Partners, hosted a public forum on whether financial reporting by the federal government comports with Constitutional requirements.  In what was perhaps the first public conference on this topic, distinguished panelists discussed the federal government’s actual expenditures, its current financial reporting, its historic choices about financial reporting, questions surrounding the Statement and Account clause of the U.S. Constitution, and proposed reforms.
