Enron The Smartest Guys In The Room


Enron dives from the seventh largest US company to bankruptcy in less than a year in this tale told chronologically. The emphasis is on human drama, from suicide to 20000 people sacked: the personalities of Ken Lay (with Falwellesque rectitude), Jeff Skilling (he of big ideas), Lou Pai (gone with $250 M), and Andy Fastow (the dark prince) dominate. Along the way, we watch Enron game California’s deregulated electricity market, get a free pass from Arthur Andersen (which okays the dubious mark-to-market accounting), use greed to manipulate banks and brokerages (Merrill Lynch fires the analyst who questions Enron’s rise), and hear from both Presidents Bush what great guys these are.

    @disamjisa Jesus, relax. It was a little throw away comment and a joke. I think people liked it because it was clearly in humour. I wouldn’t jump to the conclusion that I’m devoid of respect & honour because of a sentence I wrote on a youtube video…

    @29:47 *Cough, splutter* Holy fuck, that woman makes me want to turn straight for a day

    @jazz4 Yeah, I suppose it is a win if concepts like honour, respect, social affirmation and the like, mean absolutely nothing to you. Of course, everyone else will see you as a loser, and only nerdy sycophants living in their basements will looks up to you, but hey.. you had a “win”.

    My favourite part? Their gay little ‘motorbike holiday’. Just makes it even more obvious that they were all a group of socially frustrated geeks. They weren’t cool or popular or good-looking during their developmental stages at school, so now live out their insecurities through being the most aggressive, the most dishonest, and the ‘smartest’ in order to make revolting amounts of money. Congrats guys. But, sadly, you’re still not very cool ;D
