Accounting, Technology and Society : A Social Science Perspective on Accounting Information Systems
About this item
Complicated problems in society are increasingly being understood as technological or engineering problems. This techno-utopianism colours much discussion around politics, the economy and society. The ability to think critically about this is important but rare across the social sciences.
This book enables students to understand, measure and evaluate the role of technology in accounting and how that affects the wider world. With coverage of key technologies such as mobile and wireless, cloud computing, robotics and nanotechnology, the author demonstrates how organizations leverage disruptive technologies in order to create value.
Benefitting from an admirably broad scope, this text will provide advanced students of accounting a thorough understanding of the role of technology in their field whilst students in other disciplines will see the importance of accounting in understanding contemporary society.
