  4. 4. • Inductive Reasoning: analyzing the logic of a set of sentences not simply by its internal logic. Eg: The cost of goods was $2.00. The cost of labor was $1.00. The sales price is $6.00 per unit; so the item always provides good profit.
  5. 5. Normative (prescriptive) Theory • Employ a value judgement, containing at least one premise saying that this is the way things should be eg: Conceptual framework Deductive system are often normative.
  6. 6. Descriptive Theory • Attempt to find relationships that actually exist. Inductive approaches usually attempt to be descriptive
  7. 7. Global and Particularistic Theories • Global (macro) theories  Deductive reasoning • Particularistic (micro) theories  Inductive reasoning
  8. 8. Directions in Accounting Research 1. Decision-model approach 2. Capital market research 3. Behavioral research 4. Agency theory 5. Information economics 6. Critical accounting
  9. 9.
