Example text

The problem with the existing framework is that such a rule is absent; instead, a number of measurement bases are allowed, and it is left to entities to choose the appropriate one. If there is a general measurement rule it is of the kind ‘either measure the elements of financial statement at historical cost or current cost or realizable value or present value’. What is clear from a general rule of this kind is that decisions need to be made as to which of the alternatives is to be chosen. Again, some kind of reasoning is involved in making this kind of decision or choice, which is not deductive.

One can still want to follow a prudence rule in general and a matching rule in general even if, on occasions, one cannot follow specific rules derived from them because they are not compatible. This throws an important light upon how a theory of accounting that involves the identification of conventions might be used to derive more specific rules to be included in accounting standards. If the reasoning is not deductive then the desire to follow a specific rule on the basis of a desire to follow a general rule is not necessitated by acceptance of the general rule.

Instead the chapter will go on to consider the nature of the underlying ‘principles’ that either underpin standard setting decisions directly or provide the reasons for adopting conventions or general rules. ANOTHER KIND OF ‘PRINCIPLE’ Young suggests that what characterizes the conceptual framework approach is a move away from the traditional conception of theory as something setting out the conventions of accounting to something that arises out of the decision-usefulness approach to theorising.
