Why is financial accounting important?

At the beginning of the 20th century in the U.S., the mob phenomenon exploded. One of the most influential exponents was Al Capone. He ranked among the most despicable gangsters of all time. He killed dozens of people. The climax came in 1929 when he ordered the assassinations of seven rivals. It became the greatest massacre in mob history.

How did the story of Al Capone story end?

Although he committed thousands of crimes, he was only convicted with one. In 1931, he was finally sentenced for Tax Evasion. A pool of Forensic Accountants directed the investigation. He served in prison for almost seven years. After that Al Capone was debilitated and mentally ill, he had to renounce to his mob career.

Accountants were the ones that brought down Al Capone. While you may never bring criminals to justice through your accounting, you can realize the power that accounting does have.
