ABSTRACT
In this article the authors examine proposals made in 2007 by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) to redefine the accounting term "fair value." The IASB opinion reflects that of the U.S. Financial Accounting Standards Board, according to the authors. Opinions on fair value, as voiced by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, are presented. The authors suggest that the term be abandoned altogether.
