The article presents an interview with James E. Copeland Jr., chief executive officer for Deloitte & Touche. He believes that an era of corporate scandals in the U.S. will give way to an era of top-quality financial reporting. In his view some of the reforms imposed in the wake of accounting scandals will have harmful, unintended consequences. He sees continued difficulties in reconciling principles-based international accounting standards with rules-based U.S. standards.
