Is helping people understand and exercise their legal rights not useful to society? Rule of law is pretty useless if people don't have the ability to enforce those rights when necessary. There's a good argument that our legal regime is too complex, but regardless lawyers seem pretty necessary in any society that claims to have functioning laws.

Nobody's being "purposely confusing." Legal terms are very precise, so that you know whether you've actually broken laws or not. If laws used basic, simple words, they wouldn't have enough precision, which would allow the government/plaintiffs/etc. to manipulate them. Laws are complex and specific out of necessity, for the protection of people's rights. Yes, it means that experts are necessary to help understand them, but overall it makes the system more fair.

And it's obvious that lawyers always act in their own best interest anyway
So this is obviously anecdotal evidence, but I've been a lawyer for some time now, and I and everybody I work with genuinely acts in the interests of our clients. Feel free to disbelieve me, but that's my experience. I'm not saying there are lawyers out there who prioritize their own interests over their clients, there definitely are. But by and large, lawyers do what they're supposed to, which is act in their client's best interest. Unfortunately those who don't give the rest of us a bad name.

They need to purposely be that way so that they're not ambiguous. They need exact, specific definitions utilizing the utmost of the english language so that everyone is on the same page

as for accountants: how the fuck is moving invisible numbers around a job?

I don't think you actually know what accountants do. By your logic then all mathematicians, scientists, chemists, et cetera are just "moving imaginary shit and writing dumb things down" so it's useless, right?

but they aren't exact. They really can't be. Look at the definition of "obscenity" for example

https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/obscenity

How do we know "whether ‘the average person, applying contemporary community standards’ would find that the work, ‘taken as a whole,’ appeals to ‘prurient interest' "?

that's confusing as hell and it's still vague because we can't just find the "average person" and ask them. That's the point of having courts.

also, "Currently, obscenity is evaluated by federal and state courts alike using a tripartite standard established by Miller v. California 413 U.S. 15 (1973). The Miller test for obscenity includes the following criteria: "

How does the word "tripartite" make this any less vague? could they possibly be any more elitist and pretentious?

This is what it should say:

"Currently, the definition of obscenity is defined in federal and state courts by the standard established by Miller v. California 413 U.S. 15 (1973). The Miller test for obscenity is:"

as for accountants: how the fuck is moving invisible numbers around a job?

Accountant is a very broad term when it comes to fields of work. The "invisible numbers" comes from interpreting transactions. Sensitive transactions have restrictions by accounting law how they are supposed to be handled, but there are loop holes that a company can use to affect their results for a couple years depending on their strategy. However this isn't accountants trying to screw you over. It's usually the CEO trying to earn a quick buck by manipulating results.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

@RavySnake

Yes because it has results with verifiable value.

"wow, with these new engines our fleet of aircraft is 2% more efficient. We'll save 420$ per flight."

Accounting however is just pulling money out of nothing by strategically moving magic numbers around, which is cheating the system. Also how is it fair to get money doing shit with no value while other people do shit with actual value?

"Damn, I just spent all day looking over our records and if we hire a pregnant woman the government will let us keep 69 cents next year"

To spend one's career on cheating the system is shameful.

The extra money comes from bonus systems for doing good as a CEO that the company itself has implemented. Which technically has nothing to do with accounting itself.

Most bonus plans have restrictions to stop people from trying to squeeze out those percentages through questionable accounting strategies.

You have to understand that this isn't illegal in any way. Accountants just write down that the company has done by the numbers, retarded business decisions or not.

Plus there is a lot of arguing about technicalities.

For example: let's say the law states building sites fall in a different tax bracket. Then the next day you will have people who will put a shovel into the ground in their garden and then claim it's a building site.
Or if books fall under a different tax category then you will get comic books, three page books, empty books claiming it falls under that tax category.

The same thing happens in murder cases for example. There is a case for example where some guy died after his wife threw a slipper to his head. You have doctors who make mistakes that could have been prevented, but it's also the risk you take when undergoing surgery. You have cops who have to make a split second decision when a reportedly armed man grabs something out of his jacket after being warned not to. It just goes on and on.

@Evil_kitten
To bluntly say it should be illegal is naive. Hiring a CEO is walking on barbed wire thanks to a concept called agency costs. You're basically trusting your company to a complete stranger.

What if he's not that dedicated and slacks off? Hence the bonus system to keep him focused on results.

What if he just thinks short term and fucks off in a year? That's where 3 year plans and that kind of stuff comes in.

"But why did that CEO get 100 million for ruining this and that company? Fucking corporations down with the system!!1!"

Failing as a CEO can be very destructive for your career. A company getting bad results can't be avoided in some cases. If they can't get ensured a safety net for doing potential career suicide or public defamation, then nobody would apply as CEO.

Doing short term strategies isn't against the law. Even if the company didn't have the best intentions with it. It's very hard to accurately fingerpoint moral standpoints in those situations.

After the shitshow ended, lawmakers came up with the Sarbanes Oxley act. A new set of heavy regulations of public accounting. You'd probably orgasm over how it fucks over companies. However it's a cruel joke outside of the US and has led to less international companies setting foot in America. Basically an international company has to file 10 times the accounting paperwork if they want to conduct business in the US.

No, they aren't pretty because all cases get treated uniformly based on simple laws. So people get unfitting sentences for unfitting situations.

That's why precise laws and case law are so important.

The IFRS foundation is trying to create a global set of accounting rules that exist solely for simplicity and looking beautiful in the eye of investors. They've come a long way and have considerations depending on industry and etc.

However accounting isn't an exact science when it boils down. And the truth is that trying to get the perfect results is a waste of time and resources. The general idea of a company's status is the realistic goal.

Auditors know this and constantly consider an accounting errors impact on the big picture. If it has no impact, then it's ignored.

But how do they know what numbers have impact or not?

A lot of accounting research is about trying to find what makes investors tickle. How different accounts correlate with the market value.

Legal terms have a long history to them. Which often have to be looked up to truly understand what is meant by them. And every time a judge does a verdict the terms get more loaded.

I mean, when we are having a simple conversation we constantly interpret words and make assumptions. When you and I talk about "insist" "law" "people" "understand" "just using english" and "random" phrases we might not even be talking about the same thing.

Brilliant. Let's have a system where when the government accuses you of a crime and wants to put you in jail for 20 years, you don't have the right to have an expert defend you, because who needs that?

Lawyers exist because in countries where the rule of law is strong (which I'd hope you agree is unambiguously a good thing), we like to have experts do their best to make sure that the correct outcome is reached under the law. A system where someone with no training in the law can do as well as someone with years of training is probably a system with a pretty shitty, vague, unfair legal system.

Accountants serve to manage costs and benefits effectively to maximize profits. They also choose the best methods for taxpaying, work to comply with federal regulations, and work to assure investors that data is accurate, real, and reliable.
In addition to this, accountants report the information on which essentially all financial markets are based.
