The Enron verdicts: corruption and American capitalism
29 May 2006
The guilty verdicts handed down by a Houston jury last week against former Enron chiefs Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling provide an opportunity to evaluate the significance of the company’s rise and fall within the context of American capitalism.
Accounts by jurors given after the verdicts were announced indicate they all agreed that the evidence against the two executives was overwhelming.
It consisted mainly of testimony from over a dozen former executives, who implicated Lay and Skilling for their roles in defrauding investors and employees through various forms of accounting manipulation.
The jurors quickly rejected the absurd position of the defense that Enron was basically a healthy company that collapsed into bankruptcy in December 2001 largely as the result of Wall Street machinations and negative press coverage.
Several jurors indicated they reacted negatively to the testimony of the defendants, and particularly Lay, who could not hide his arrogance while on the stand.
Arrogance which Lay also showed, eg, in a 2004 interview with Larry King on CNN, in which he claimed the God of Christianity was on his side.
