IHT: A role few want to audition for

While Biggs twists in the Republican wind, another potential board member, Donald Kirk, is under attack by Democrats who question his reformist credentials.Kirk, a professor at Columbia Business School and a veteran of the accounting standards process, may find himself blackballed precisely because he has prior experience working constructively with accountants. .But back to the chairmanship.A further look at the job description should give anyone pause. .Item: The board will set U.S. auditing standards.It can choose to adopt the standards of existing bodies.But this is not necessarily a harbinger of success - considering that the current standards, on the watch of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, evolved over eras of geological time while public companies tumbled into wreckage. .Of course, the board could publish its own auditing standards.But with only two out of five seats open to qualified accountants, that would seem a challenge - one at least as great as overcoming its stumbling beginnings to attract a professional staff remotely capable of such a task. .
