- The context in which this Act was passed what problems it is intended to solve

- How the Act will help ensure that corporate financial reports are accurate

- How the Act has been interpreted in the year after its passage

Approximately 23, 335 words.

Includes exercises and quick quizzes.

ABOUT THE SARBANES-OXLEY ACT

Congress took this action because so many individuals and organizations are dependent on the integrity of the U.S. stock market. Millions of people in the U.S.and indeed the worldare making investment decisions based on what they believe a share of stock is worth.

In the years leading up to the Act's passage, some highly publicized cases of misrepresentation caused serious financial losses to individuals and investment funds.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act is designed to protect the public from willful lies, deceit and misrepresentations. With this protection, investors can be more sure that their success or failure in the stock market will be based on their own choices and not on faulty information.
