Grading The Accountants

from the fail-'em! dept

An analyst at CSFB has come up with an additional rating for companies beyond the buy/sell/hold etc. ratings. This analyst has also started giving letter grades to the accountants who files financial statements for each company. In the wake of the Enron scandal, when everyone now assumes that all accountants are lying bastards, this sort of thing might be useful (assuming you trust the analyst as well – which might be a leap of faith in its own right). Maybe we now need to set up a grading system that will grade the analysts who grade the accountants.
