This Week: Enron
This Week
August 12, 2005


This week on NOW:

When THE NEW YORK TIMES reviewed filmmaker Alex Gibney's latest documentary ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM, it called the film: "a fascinating chronicle of arrogance and greed." David Brancaccio talks to Gibney about what his fresh look at Enron's corporate excess and abuse of power can tell us about the flaws in the system and in human nature that allowed it to happen. "It's staggering how little regard there was for any kind of moral consequence of what they were doing," says Gibney.
