Uploaded by :

A 5 page paper discussing the continued relevance of the audit and auditor for stakeholders in today's business environment.

Auditors may or may not be able to uncover intentional deception, but their role in ensuring uniformity over time is valuable to all stakeholders, particularly investors. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
