讲座题目：The Accounting Machinations of Corporate Australia
Abstract：Most academic research and reports from Australian, European and U.S. institutions have studied corporate tax avoidance, its estimated cost and the different mechanisms of tax avoidance used by multinationals. A social network analysis of the regulators, auditors and directors of corporations indicated the existence of strong educational and professional connections between regulators and companies practising tax avoidance. The findings confirmed that there are, at least, two types of connections, educational connections and professional connections that exist between regulators and companies practising tax avoidance.
