The Economics of Organizational Design and Accounting
Vicente Salas Fumás
Information is a key variable to understand the nature and internal functioning of organisations and markets. The internal design of organisations seeks to make the best possible use of the information available in order to efficiently solve the problems of coordination and motivation within the organisational boundaries; it also influences the definition of tasks and the relations among them in order to change information needs. Accounting plays a tripe role in organisations, decision, control and bonding (specially with respect to third parties such as investors). All of them rely on information production, analysis and transmission. Information is then the nexus between Accounting and Organisation and this paper explores common interests and opportunities for research in the two fields of knowledge.
