Description

Enron's collapse was famous for its accounting debacle and other business side errors. How did such a dishonest company rise to success in the first place? The answer is with a powerful combination of campaign money and political friends designed to create an environment friendly to Enron's style of business. CEO Ken Lay was a former lobbyist himself and knew the Beltway well. The result of their heavy political investment was deregulation in Congress and appointed local commissioners who were already friendly with the company.
