5.0 out of 5 stars The Smartest As_es in the room!, February 21, 2006
This review is from: Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (DVD)
"It's just business!" Is a direct quote from the horses as__. I guess this was their business slogan when Enron's senior executives began bilking millions of dollars from customers, businesses and their own employees.

Kenneth Lay, President, Jeffery Skilling, CEO and Andrew Fastow, CFO are the senior executives who portray the "Smartest Guys" in this documentary DVD. From the 7th largest company in history to being bankrupt in about 24 days, this DVD takes an inside look at this historical white collar crime. The DVD features insider accounts, corporate video/audio records and past employee interviews.

Every person needs to see this DVD because they will learn some valuable lessons on How not to run a business. Don't always believe what senior management or management in general is saying. There are a lot of great actors in the corporate world too! When viewing this DVD pay close attention to how willingly outside banks and businesses will overlook some policies and procedures if they think it will make them money. Are they going to be held accountable?

In this DVD you will learn some so-called "Accounting" practices. The "Hypothetical Future Value" will blow the viewer's mind. Try this when applying for a business loan! I fell sorry for the 30,000 front line employees who lost all of their 401(k) money and stock that was frozen if you weren't a senior executive.

The Enron trial is about to resume. Watch this DVD and see the blatant lying, cover ups and how business affects politics. What justice will be necessary to prevent this from happening? Because this IS still happening!
