Sarbanes-Oxley Keeps Us Honest
A new survey has found that more than half of public companies have changed their "revenue recognition policies" in light of Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. (Rather than, for example, go to jail.)
Sarbanes-Oxley was put in place to stop companies from cheating on their financial reporting to boost stock prices and personal perks (paging Enron, Adelphia, WorldCom and others).
Apparently, it's working.
