Too Long; Didn't Read

Yuji Ijiri created triple-entry accounting in 1989. Without accounting, you wouldn’t be reading this article on your iPad, driving to work in a new car or listening to music on Pandora. Without accounting there’s no commerce, no trade. Without commerce there would be no planes, no trains, no tractors, no steam engine, no skyscrapers or computers. The earliest examples of single entry accounting go back to the Sumerians about 5000 years ago on cuneiform tablets.
