This article develops a single-play game theory model that looks at the strategic interactions between auditors and managers. The article adds to the literature by explicitly modelling the possibility of collusion in a context where the outcome is unverifiable and the manager has the possibility of funding side-payments in such a way that they have little effect on his personal payoff.
