What People are Saying About This

Harvey Rosenblum

"...the definitive and complete guide to understanding the topic of corporate scandals and their impact on the U.S. economy. Their writing style and case methodology put the reader in the middle of the action, thereby encouraging reflection on how one would behave if placed in a similar situation.
They not only detail what went wrong, but they offer provocative insights on the institutional changes necessary to restore confidence and trust in business accounting. This book should be required reading in every MBA program, and for undergraduate business majors as well."
Senior Vice President and Director of Research, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and University Professor of Finance, Cox School of Business, Southern Methodist University

Stanley D. Smith

"The Gray, Frieder, and Clark author team does a terrific job integrating the diverse elements that resulted in unparalleled scandal. This work is detailed, objective, definitive, and includes the latest developments. Its insightful presentation of a $1.6 trillion financial "heist" is must reading for all observers of U.S. capitalism and corporate governance."
SunTrust Chair of Banking and Professor of Finance, University of Central Florida

Gary Quinlivan

"Corporate Scandals is the encyclopedia of corporate scandals and an essential text for Business Ethics."
Dean of the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics, and Government at Saint Vincent College
