Accounting researchers have long been interested in the ways in which power dynamics and social structures shape financial reporting and organisational decision-making. Social reproduction theory provides a crucial perspective in this regard, as it focuses on how these structures and dynamics are perpetuated over time through institutions such as the economy and the accounting profession.
