For the month of July we would like to honor a longtime member of the society Dr. John Sorros. Since coming to his first meeting in 2009, the 68th International Economic Conference in Boston, he has been an active member and in 2012 he helped in the judging of our annual Best Undergraduate Paper Award Competition. Dr. Sorros is an Associate Professor of Cost Accounting and the Program Director of the Masters Program in Accounting and Control in Business and the Public Sector at the University of Piraeus. He enjoys the fact that through his membership he is able to present and publish his research and the research of his doctoral candidates. His current research interests are the relationship of the real economy to the financial crises in the money markets and the correlation of information from financial statements of the industrial firms to the national accounts.
