Abstract:

Oscar-nominated documentary revealing the psychology of greed and corporate corruption that facilitated Enron's rise and fall. When Enron went bankrupt in 2001, the principals walked away millionaires, but later faced legal proceedings and jail sentences. Meanwhile, many employees and investors were left with nothing. Shedding light on the new economy of the 1990s when predictions and book-cooking flourished without actual profits, the film shows how it was not Enron alone but a network of bankers, traders, and accountants who turned a blind eye to the company's clearly suspicious numbers.
