When Corporate Greed was Punished

When the Truth Had Consequences

It is hard to observe the latest crop of corporate scandals involving Enron, WorldCom and others without wondering what happened to the tough treatment once meted out to white-collar malefactors and their associates. “No more easy money for corporate criminals, just hard time,” said President Bush when he signed the corporate accountability act last month. So far that is mainly talk.

Hmm, maybe nothing has really happened because Bush would have to go after his Vice President.

  1. Maybe nothing has happened because if you have a enough money you can buy justice.
    Until the justice system is “back” in the hands of the common man instead of the rich, white collar crime will be a fact of life.
