Virtually every concept refers to a real company, a real situation, or a real event. Pratt 9e takes an integrative look at accounting and finance by considering the impact of economics, internal controls, international standard, ethics, decision-making, and earnings management.

This text enables MBA and undergraduate students to develop an understanding of the impact that economic events have on business. New elements in the ninth edition sharpen the text's economic decision-making foundation and is available with Quantum's intelligent adaptive learning and assessment software.
