Playing by the Rules: Ethics at Work

Ask Why - Full Episode

Season 1 Episode 2 | 26m 53s

The name “Enron” remains synonymous with corporate greed. In late 2001, Enron went bankrupt after using a series of accounting schemes to exaggerate its bottom line. Few at Enron admit they knew what was going on, yet that scheming didn’t happen overnight. This episode explores the rise and fall of Enron, and the story of one Enron employee brave enough to take her concerns straight to the top.
