Double Entry Bookkeeping

Jane Gleeson-White has written a lovely book about the history and implications of double entry bookkeeping.

‘The rise and metamorphosis of double-entry bookkeeping is one of history’s best-kept secrets and most important untold tales … Through its logic we have let the planet go to ruin – and through its logic we now have a chance to avert that ruin.’

On Saturday morning she was interviewed by Kim Hill on Radio New Zealand. If you love bookkeeping and accounting you’ll enjoy the interview.
