Corporate Crooks: How Rogue Executives Ripped Off Americans...and Congress Helped Them Do It!

  Corporate Crooks

By Greg Farrell with foreword by Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA 



How did the most trusted financial system in the world become the breeding ground for the massive corruption uncovered in the Enron and WorldCom scandals?

In this book, veteran USA Today investigative journalist Greg Farrell explains how this breakdown happened. Corporate Crooks shows how incentive compensation for CEOs, combined with the decline of the American auditing industry, led to a series of spectacular accounting frauds, not just at Enron and WorldCom, but at other companies as well.
