Corporate Aftershock: The Public Policy Lessons from the Collapse of Enron and Other Major Corporations

Buy
"In the near future, someone will build a better Enron–a legitimate company with the means and integrity to revolutionize markets. That person will want to use Corporate Aftershock as his business manual and had better hope that government regulators are reading it as well."

–Ross M. Miller, author, Paving Wall Street, coauthor, What Went Wrong at Enron

"During periods of crisis, it’s important for us to have an unemotional and objective analysis that can help us better understand the consequences of policy alternatives before the political process overwhelms sensible choices. Fraud and deceit are not common characteristics of our highly successful market economy. This volume recognizes this and presents a well-thought-out alternative that needs to be read and understood by all voters."
–Joel Stern, Managing Partner
Stern Stewart & Co.

"The effects of recent corporate and accounting scandals continue to be felt in financial markets and the economy. Predictably, these events have touched off a cry for Washington to ‘do something so it never happens again.’ The cry has already been answered, but the pressure for more regulation continues. This book, centered on the granddaddy of recent scandals, the Enron implosion, argues forcefully that this reflexive call-the-cops response may do more harm than good. Many skilled contributors dissect a variety of accounting, corporate governance, and financial management issues that have arisen in the aftermath of Enron and similar events. The articles in the book provide helpful perspective not only on what went wrong but on the important market forces that created firms like Enron and that will not soon go away. The book is a useful antidote to the steady diet of recrimination and scapegoating that have dominated recent public debate about these matters. It will also be useful to specialists in accounting and risk management who have been left to cope with the issues that have emerged in the wake of these seismic events."
–Sam Peltzman, Professor of Economics
Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago

"The greatest tragedy of the Enron debacle is not likely to be the consequences of its bankruptcy, but from the erroneous institutional reforms that will take hold if its causes are not well understood. This thorough and thoughtful set of essays touches on all aspects of Enron, from accounting practices, to disclosure requirements, to trading strategies, to corporate governance, rate regulation, and much more. It is essential reading for those who want to walk the fine line between complacency in the face of failure and overreaction through excessive regulation."
–Richard A. Epstein, professor of Law
University of Chicago, senior fellow, Hoover Institution

Guest: I have been for more than 20 years a very supportive investor to the US. I have managed a hedge fund and retired a few years ago and have also invested in public companies and found that in EVERY SINGLE PUBLIC COMPANY I INVESTED I FOUND SHAREHOLDER ABUSE AND FRAUD. I am not buying any US stocks anymore, too much deception and fraud. This was very hard to accept to me but even what VIVEKANANDA (The complete work of Vivekananda page 596) said more than 100 years ago is more true then ever........ It looks like you get more when you fail as a CEO than succeed. I am deeply disgust by that society.
