SOX Analysis

Search for 4-5 scholarly source articles that have been published in the last three years that specifically relate to the effect of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002 on today's business policymaking.

Create a 1,400 to 1,500-word paper based on those articles discussing the applicability of SOX and how SOX has affected ethical decision making in today's business environment. The paper is to be a discussion of changes seen in business as a result of SOX, not a summary of the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act or the history behind the enactment of SOX. In your analysis please discuss the following issues, among others:

  • How SOX has affected ethical decision making in today's business environment?
  • What changes are seen in business as a result of SOX?
  • Discuss how SOX aided in the implementation of accounting reforms.
  • Explain how SOX strengthened the enforcement of securities fraud.
  • Discuss what role, if any, SOX plays in small business ethics and accounting practices.
  • Discuss what role, if any, SOX plays in the business ethics and accounting practices of non-publicly traded companies.
  • Evaluate the ethical implications to businesses operating now. Are businesses more ethical? Support your conclusions with citation to scholarly references.
  • Explain how SOX and associated ethical considerations may affect consultants.

Remember, you must identify and discuss the elements of the rule for each issue that you identify using an IRAC analysis.

Cite a minimum of four (4) scholarly sources.

Format consistent with APA guidelines.
