This study determines whether U.S. GAAP or IAS/IFRS is more susceptible to earnings management. U.S. GAAP firms are less inclined to smooth income via R&D expenditure, not more inclined to smooth income via discretionary accruals and not less inclined to smooth income via deferred tax expenses vis-?-vis IFRS firms.
