Boring scientists say accountants are boring

TS has been campaigning for years to spice up the world of accountancy, if it wasn’t interesting enough for you already, but boffins now tell us that we are fighting a losing battle. The City University of Hong Kong has said it can prove why accountants are boring.

We don’t want to give this ‘study’ too much credence, so we won’t go into too much detail, but apparently it’s got something to do with the language used by the nation’s beancounters and the environment they work in.

TS reckons this study must be seriously flawed, after all who could possibly find capital gains tax or even interest rate margin hedging dull? See Colin’s view on the blog…
