The National Emperors of Avarice: Corporate Greed

The National Emperors of Avarice: Corporate Greed

Join Rex Murphy as he reflects on the corporate scandals of Enron, WorldCom, ImClone and the downfall of various CEOs. The U.S., in Murphy’s view, is a society that has lost its ethical and moral core in the face of a hot stock market. Even the gatekeepers – auditors – were complicit in their creative accounting. Murphy asks: where did it all go wrong? After a decade of decadence and self-interest, businessmen are asking themselves if there is any integrity left in the system. Murphy wonders where Canada sits in the midst of this corporate crackup.
