After Enron / HART PUBLISHING (2006)
Titre : After Enron : improving corporate law and modernising securities regulation in Europe and the US Type de document : e-book Auteurs : John ARMOUR, Éditeur scientifique ; Joseph MCCAHERY, Éditeur scientifique Editeur : HART PUBLISHING Année de publication : 2006 Importance : 701 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 978-1-84731-290-7 Langues : Anglais (eng) Mots-clés candidats : Corporate governance Law and legislation United States. Securities European Union countries. Law reform CORRUPTION CORRUPCIÓN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMÉRICA ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE SPECULATION ESPECULACIÓN Résumé : At the end of the twentieth century, it was thought by many that the Anglo-American system of corporate governance was performing effectively. Some observers claimed to see an international trend towards convergence around this model, in which firms raise finance on capital markets from dispersed investors, and corporate governance seeks to keep managers accountable to shareholders. There can be no denying that the recent corporate governance crisis in the US - Enron and related scandals - has caused many to question their faith in this view. This collection of essays provide a comprehensive attempt to answer the following questions: firstly, what went wrong - when and why do markets misprice the value of firms, and what was wrong with the incentives set by Enron? Secondly, what has been done in response, and how well will it work - including essays on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the US, UK company law reform and European company law and auditor liability reform, along with a consideration of corporate governance reforms in historical perspective. Three approaches emerge. The first two share the premise that the system is fundamentally sound, but part ways over whether a regulatory response is required. The first view argues that the events of the 'fall' have indicated a need for greater regulation to curb the excesses of the market. The second view suggests that Enron was merely an aberration, which 'self-corrected' anyway, and consequently the regulatory response has been unnecessarily restrictive. The third view, in contrast, argues that the various scandals demonstrate fundamental weaknesses in the Anglo-American system itself, which cannot hope to be repaired by the sort of reforms that have taken place. It is for the reader, and ultimately history, to decide which view is correct.

Titre : Enron and world finance : a case study in ethics Type de document : e-book Editeur : New York : PALGRAVE MACMILLAN Année de publication : 2006 Importance : xvi, 257 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 978-0-230-51886-5 Note générale : Index. Langues : Anglais (eng) Mots-clés candidats : Enron Corp Case studies. Corrupt practices Energy industries United States. Corporations United States Business ethics Corporate governance Corporate culture CORRUPTION CORRUPCIÓN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMÉRICA ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE SPECULATION ESPECULACIÓN Résumé : Four years after the debacle, the term 'Enron' has earned its place in the everyday vocabulary of business ethics. Hardly anyone understands the business intricacies of what really happened with the sophisticated energy conglomerate. Even fewer are those able to envision, beyond the business case, the ethical questions and dilemmas facing actors at any one stage of the drama. Using the collapse of Enron as a case study, this book not only shows how and where ethics came into play, but also draws lessons and discusses possible remedies that may prevent the whole financial system from falling apart as a result of either excessive greed or over-regulation.

Titre : A financial history of modern U.S. corporate scandals : from Enron to reform Type de document : e-book Auteurs : Jerry W. MARKHAM, Auteur Editeur : M.E. SHARPE Année de publication : 2006 Importance : xviii, 742 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 978-0-7656-2110-8 Note générale : Bibliogr. p.677-692. Index. Langues : Anglais (eng) Mots-clés candidats : CORRUPTION CORRUPCIÓN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMÉRICA ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE SPECULATION ESPECULACIÓN Résumé : The author of the award-winning trilogy A Financial History of the United States now provides a definitive new reference or the major failures of American corporate governance at the start of the 21st century. An essential resource for students, teachers and professionals in business finance, and securities law, this exhaustive work provides in-depth coverage of the collapse of the Enron Corporation and other financial scandals that erupted in the wake of the market downturn of 2000. The authoritative volume traces the market boom and bust that preceded Enron's collapse, as well as the aftermath of that failure, including the Enron bankruptcy proceedings, the prosecution of Enron officials, and Enron's role in the California energy crisis. It examines the role of the SEC's full disclosure system in corporate governance, and the role of accountants in that system, including Arthur Andersen LLP, the Enron auditor that was destroyed after it was accused of obstructing justice. The author chronicles the meltdown in the telecom sector that gave rise to accounting scandals at Nortel, Lucent, Qwest, Global Crossing, Adelphia, and WorldCom.
He traces other accounting and governance failures at Rite Aid, Xerox, Computer Associates, AOL Time Warner, Vivendi, HealthSouth, and Hollinger. Markham also covers such Wall Street scandals as the Martha Stewart trial, the financial analyst conflicts, and the mutual fund trading abuses. He analyzes the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation that was adopted in response to these scandals, the burdens it imposes, and continuing flaws in full disclosure. Markham also traces the remarkable market recovery that followed the scandals and addresses the misguided efforts of corporate governance reformers that led to the abuses.

Titre : Enron : the rise and fall Type de document : e-book Auteurs : Loren FOX, Auteur Editeur : Sussex : WILEY Année de publication : 2003 Importance : xiii, 370 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 978-0-471-43220-3 Note générale : Index. Langues : Anglais (eng) Mots-clés candidats : CORRUPTION CORRUPCIÓN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMÉRICA ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE SPECULATION ESPECULACIÓN Résumé : "I′d say you were a carnival barker, except that wouldn′t be fair tocarnival barkers. A carnie will at least tell you up front that he′s running a shell game. You, Mr. Lay, were running what purported to be the seventh largest corporation in America."–Senator Peter Fitzgerald (R–IL) to Enron CEO Kenneth Lay, Senate Commerce Science & Transportation′s Subcommittee, Hearing on Enron, 2/12/02 The speed of Enron′s rise and fall is truly astonishing and perhaps the single most important story of corporate failure in the twenty–first century. In Enron investigative journalist Loren Fox promises readers nothing short of the most compelling and insightful investigation into Enron′s meteoric ascent–regarded by Wall Street and the media as the epitome of innovation–and its spectacular fall from grace. In a lively and authoritative manner, Fox discusses how the biggest corporate bankruptcy in American business history happened, why for so long no one (except for an enlightened few) saw it coming, and what its impact will be on financial markets, the U.S. economy, U.S. energy policy, and the public for years to come. With access to many company insiders, Fox′s intriguing account of this corporate debacle also provides an overview of the corporate culture and business model that led to Enron′s high–flying success and disastrous failure. The story of Enron is one that will reverberate in global financial and energy markets as well as in criminal and civil courts for years to come. Rife with all the elements of a classic thriller–scandal, dishonest accounting, personal greed, questionable campaign contributions, suicide–Enron captures the essence of a company that went too far too fast.
