The Fall of Enron

 

The collapse of energy giant Enron in 2001 showed how catastrophic the agency problem can be. The company’s officers and board of directors, including Chairman Kenneth Lay, CEO Jeffrey Skilling and CFO Andy Fastow, were selling their Enron stock at higher prices due to false accounting reports that made the stock seem more valuable than it truly was. After the scandal was uncovered, thousands of stockholders lost millions of dollars as Enron share values plummeted.

 

In your essay, discuss the agency problem in Enron and how the motives were originated, the unethical practices of the board of directors, their CEOs that propagated the problem, and the outcomes of these practices on the company’s shareholders. What alternatives and solutions would you suggest to solve this ethical dilemma?
