Credit Rating Agencies: Current Federal Oversight and Congressional Concerns

Date: August 1, 2005
Creator: Seitzinger, Michael V
Description: Credit rating agencies rate the creditworthiness of public companies so that the public will have an objective opinion as to the risk of investment. These ratings have become an important component of the financial reputation of a rated company. However, especially since the bankruptcies of Enron and WorldCom, whose debt had been rated investment grade, there has been concern that perhaps credit rating agencies should be regulated.

Date: November 15, 2005
Creator: Lyke, Bob & Shorter, Gary
Description: The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued a long-anticipated rule that stock options must be recognized as an expense on corporation income statements.

This report examines the debate surrounding the issue and discusses the potential consequences.
