Our Accounting area faculty conduct research on a number of different topics important to the accounting profession. Below are a few examples of our recent work.
Daniel Saavedra, "Why Don't Firms Claim Their Tax Refunds?"
A puzzle in the literature is why a large fraction of firms eligible for income tax refunds not file claims for such refunds on a timely basis.
Beatrice Michaeli, "Divide and Inform: Rationing Information to Facilitate Persuasion"
Michaeli develops a Bayesian persuasion model examining a manager's incentives to gather information when the manager can disseminate this information selectively to interested parties ("users") and when the objectives of the manager and the users are not perfectly aligned.
