Question description

Even though firms follow the accounting rules (GAAP) when presenting their financial statements it is still possible for conflicts of interest to exist between what management wants investors and creditors to see and the economic reality of transactions. Write a short essay (roughly 200 words) explaining how this can occur. In your essay explain how there are still conflicts of interest, even when firms are following the generally accepted accounting procedures (GAAP), between what management wants investors and creditors to see and the economic reality of transactions.  (No Wikipedia References Please)
