IFRS Adoption and Enforcement as Antecedents of Economic Growth

Syed Kashif Raza Zaidi, Esperanza Huerta


This paper assesses the impact of IFRS adoption on the economic growth of adopting countries taking into consideration the level of enforcement of the adopting countries. We hypothesize that the adoption of IFRS increases the economic growth of the adopting countries. This effect is to be moderated by the level of enforcement. That is, we hypothesize a positive interaction between enforcement level and IFRS adoption on the economic growth rate of a country. Using several statistical procedures and models to estimate regression, we find partial support for our hypotheses.
