Corporations exist in an odd information space, requiring detailed public reporting and simultaneously allowing enormous secrecy. Financial reporting, however, does not paint a full and meaningful picture of corporate activities. Several straightforward changes to financial reporting can make them much more meaningful and useful to investors, analysts, regulators and the financial world in general. More robust changes to information on products can make the market system as a whole more efficient.
