"In an effort to curb the unnecessary "man-made aftershocks" that continue to ripple throughout the business world today, Corporate Aftershock: The Public Policy Lessons from the Collapse of Enron and Other Major Corporations has been written as a reasoned, informed response to the numerous proposals to restrict derivatives, stifle structured financing activities, and amend shareholder protection principles and practices following the failure of Enron and other corporations. Editors Christopher Culp and William Niskanen have assembled an expert cast of contributors, each of whom are leaders in their respective fields - from credit risk management to energy and derivatives markets - to provide an unbiased public policy analysis of the failure of Enron and other major corporations."--BOOK JACKET
