IFRS Article Appreciated


I wanted to let you know that I thought the article “Countdown to Convergence” (March 10, page 24) was very good. I participated in the AICPA IFRS revenue recognition task force and I am helping write IFRS questions for the 2011 CPA exam, so I have a particular interest in IFRS. It is good to see the topic covered at the level that you presented.
