    AIB Greatest Planner -- Who is the greatest accountant ever?

    Michaelski's "Greatest Planner" thread got me to thinking about my first field of study and got me to wondering... Who is the greatest accountant of all time? I'm sure the American Accounting Association has had an extensive debate over this question.

    I mean who was the accountant that perfected the abacus? Who was the first to offer electronic tax filing? Who determined that a solid double line to be under the grand total? Who decided that my check book should always be described as "in the red" when it could have been any color? Who designed the tax forms for ease of use? Who proofreads the GAPAs? Who among these great contributors should be crowned the "Greatest Accountant of All Time"?
