The Ethics of Enron

The Ethics of Enron


The 2001 collapse of the Enron Corporation shook Wall Street to its core. The Texan energy giant had been named ‘America’s Most Innovative Company’ by Fortune for six years in a row; breaking new boundaries with its pioneering business model, its extraordinary growth and a peak share price of $90.75. But in 2001 it all went wrong. Collapsing in dizzying fashion, Enron’s stock price plummeted to $0.26, bringing down with it $74 billion in investors’ money. Over 4000 employees lost their jobs immediately, pension plans collapsed into dust and families were financially ruined.

In this talk, we ask whether it can be justified. How far should innovation go before the human toll is considered? In discussion with Enron employees, we will unpack the ethics of the financial disaster that drove a soaring company to its knees.
