The fall of Enron was much more than a business scandal. Not only did the events of October 2001 have a more damaging effect on the markets than 9/11 but, like Watergate, it was an event that sent shivers throughout the whole world. The subsequent unravelling of the truth would bring down CEOs, taint the President, destroy the accountants Arthur Andersen, and call into question corporate governance throughout the US. It was the beginning of the end of confidence in American stakeholder capitalism. This is an in-depth investigation of the fall of Enron.
