The Fall of Enron
The collapse of energy giant Enron in 2001 showed how
catastrophic the agency problem can be. The company’s officers and board of
directors, including Chairman Kenneth Lay, CEO Jeffrey Skilling and CFO Andy
Fastow, were selling their Enron stock at higher prices due to false accounting
reports that made the stock seem more valuable than it truly was. After the
scandal was uncovered, thousands of stockholders lost millions of dollars as
Enron share values plummeted.
