••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• '" 2 '" Accounting and the Contract Model of the Firm Accounting helps make a firm work. To understand accounting, the firm itself must be understood. What is the nature of the firm? What are its components, and how do they fit together? How does it operate, and what is the role of accounting in making it work? We pursue these questions in this chapter. Much of the discussion of firms is applicable to organizations in general. Ac- counting is an essential aspect of the working of government, not-for-profit, and even religious organizations. Some of these organizational forms and the special features of accounting needed to help operate them are discussed in Chapter 13. There are many ways of looking at the firm, each suited for a different purpose.
