Running Head: ETHICAL ENRON 2 Enron is a company that has been around for a long period of time and was later managed by Jeffery Skilling President, Chief operating officer, and CEO. Andrew Fastow also worked alongside with Jeffery Skilling as the Chief Financial Officer. The problem and the down fall of this company is that the CEO of the company was gambling the business and had been doing so for so long the business ended up going into bad debt. The company was misrepresenting earnings reports while continuing to appreciate the revenue that was being provided. The executives of the company knew that the earnings and reports were fraudulent and continue to provide false information. In a summary of the business they were embezzling funds. I believe that this business would have never went downstream if someone in upper management would have had a conscious and spoke up to advise what the company was doing was wrong.

I believe that most of the schemes with business be successful is no outsider are really looking at the stocks and revenues.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
