A CPA’s Anguish

BY MARVIN SMITH

My pride in the accounting profession has been severely injured as a result of the recent reports relating to Enron and WorldCom.

An auditor should be inquisitive, dig into financial transactions and ask questions. I received my CPA certificate in 1951, and I do not believe my generation would have allowed what has happened to our profession.

I wonder if the hurt will ever be healed.
