UTSpeaks: In the Shadows of Enron - Has Australian Business Learned from the Greatest Corporate Failure of all Time?
The aftermath of even the greatest calamity eventually fades, but is big business already forgetting the $8 trillion price tag of Enron's corporate failure? Is fatigue growing in the diligence of corporate governance regulation in Australian business? In a rapidly globalising economy what are the governance implications of acquisitive hedge funds and private equity? This free public lecture revisits the complex of errors made by financial and corporate gatekeepers accountants, lawyers, auditors, analysts, financial journalists and regulators that led to the Enron crisis. It also considers "where to from here" for the management of Australian corporations.
