    Abstract

    The standard setting bodies face ethical questions about the nature of empirical evidence when they consider assertions made by respondents against or in favor of a proposed standard. This study explores whether respondent firms to the International Accounting Standards Committee's extractive industries issues paper (issued for comment in November 2000) possess characteristics likely to induce managerial intent to smooth income and if these possibly influenced the pattern of their responses.
