Accounting Classification and the International Harmonisation Debate ? An Empirical Investigation
Accounting, Organizations and Society
In the current debate on international accounting harmonisation, references are made to accounting model categories. In particular, a distinction is made between the Anglo-American accounting cluster and the continental European cluster. First, we provide a review of the related accounting classification literature. Different classification results can be traced back to differences in the conceptional and methodological research designs.

Basically, a picture of an Anglo-American or continental European accounting model cannot be established.
