Whether it’s finding new ways to recognize environmental externalities or understanding the tax implications of international opportunities, accountants will be needed more than they ever have been. In a world where accounting is the language, accountants are the translators.

As accountants figure out ways to incorporate other disciplines into accounting, that will make more routine accounting things more automated. Then we can focus on creative business solving problems and improving business practices.
