广州大学永利总站官网地址会计系黎文飞博士（通讯作者）与（蔡贵龙和Zhenyang Tang）合作的学术论文“Religion and the Method of Earnings Management: Evidence
from China”在FT50期刊《Journal of Business Ethics》（JCR一区）2020年第161卷第1期正式发表。
Previous studies argue that religious frms are more ethical and thus engage less in accrual earnings management. At odds with the ethical view, we use a sample of Chinese listed frms and show that frms in religious regions use more real earnings management. We postulate that besides ethics, religion also proxies for risk aversion, which motivates frms to substitute
accrual earnings management with real earnings management. Consistent with this view, we show that the positive (negative) association between religiosity and real (accrual) earnings management is more pronounced for frms with lower litigation risk and for frms with less reputable auditors. In addition, we use a mediation model introduced by Baron and Kenny (J
Pers Soc Psychol 51(6):1173–1182, 1986) to show that religiosity afects earnings management through the channel of risk aversion. We conclude that frms choose real earnings management over accrual-based earnings management because of risk aversion, rather than ethical reasons.
