As I am reading IETC for the second time, I have come across a slight confusion. It lists that "stock holders equity is considered free" as an enterprising investor's problem with the accrual income statement. However, to me it sounds as if this point should be listed under the defensive investor. From what I understand, an enterprising investor tries to look for understatements in the accrual income statement and a defensive investor looks for overstatements in the accrual income statement. Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.
