    KINDLE [Power Failure] Wow It is said that money and power are the root of all evil This book proves that assertion It is unbelievable to me unfathomable actually that human beings are as greedy and narcissistic as described in this book Even the heroine the whistleblower was susceptible to these traits and as such should be given no sympathy Ken Lay CEO of Enron was found guilty of 10 counts of securities fraud circumvented incarceration by

Power Failure Free download ï 104 Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook å Mimi Swartz Mimi Swartz å 4 Free download “They’re still trying to hide the weenie” thought Sherron Watkins as she read a newspaper clipping about Enron two weeks before Christmas 2001 It uoted CFO Jeff McMahon addressing the company’s creditors and cautioning them against a rash judgment “Don’t assume that there is a smoking gun”Sherron knew Enron well enough to know that the company was in extreme spin modePower Failure is the electrifying behind the scenes story of the collapse of Enron the high flying gas and energy company touted as the poster child of the New Economy that in its hubris had aspired to be “The World’s Leading Company” and had briefly been the seventh largest corporation in AmericaWritten by prizewinning journalist Mimi Swartz and substantially based on the never before published revelations of former Enron vice president Sherron Watkins as well as hundreds of other interviews Power Failure shows the human face beyond the greed arrogance and raw ambition that fueled the company’s meteoric rise in. Power Failure is the third book I ve read on the Enron scandal so far and complete with some humorous uotes it manages to be entertaining while still telling the true story of what happened and not dramatizing anything It s one of those stories that s so sad and so weird all at the same time a massive company ahead of its time in marketing and advertising anyone remember the Ask Why commercials committing fraud in a way so blatant it seems almost implausible You ve gotta admire the company s ability to pull the wool over everyone s eyes but hate it all at once

Power Failure Free download ï 104 Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook å Mimi Swartz Mimi Swartz å 4 Free download The late 1990s At the dawn of the new century Ken Lay’s and Jeff Skilling's faces graced the covers of business magazines and Enron’s money oiled the political machinery behind George W Bush’s election campaign But as Wall Street analysts sang Enron’s praises and its stock spiraled dizzyingly into the stratosphere the company’s leaders were madly scrambling to manufacture illusory profits hide its ballooning debt and bully Wall Street into buying its fictional accounting and off balance sheet investment vehicles The story of Enron’s fall is a morality tale writ large performed on a stage with an unforgettable array of props and side plots from parking lots overflowing with Boxsters and BMWs to hot house office affairs and executive tantrums Among the cast of characters Mimi Swartz and Sherron Watkins observe with shrewd Texas eyes and an insider’s perspective are CEO Ken Lay Enron’s “outside face” who was interested in playing diplomat and paving the road to a political career. Given that Power Failure was written with Sherron Watkins a player of sorts in the situation I expected it to have some uniue insights but to be very agenda driven While Watkins comes out of it looking good the book s strength actually turns out to be its relatively straight recounting of the events One can t pretend to be unbiased about the figures involved in the Enron scandal but Power Failure does not aggressively push any particular theory about why things went wrong compared to for example Kurt Eichenwald s Conspiracy of Fools Since it manages to that without being completely boring it s a worthwhile book to have in the mix of books about Enron
