Tutor description

The effects are also touching Wall Street.

Canny traders have found a lucrative new strategy: sell a firm's stock short and then spread rumours about its accounts.

Findings: Firstly, Enrons Board of Directors failed to fulfil its fiduciary duties towards the corporations shareholders. Secondly, the top executives of Enron were greedy and acted in their own self-interest. Thirdly, many of Enrons employees witnessed the wrongdoings of Enrons top executives, and quite a few whistleblowers came forward. Lastly, Enron outsourced external auditing for its internal audit function instead of establishing a functionally internal audit mechanism and its external auditor acquiesced in the application of questionable accounting and fraudulent financial reporting.Enron and auditingThe lessons from EnronAfter the energy firm's collapse, the entire auditing regime needs radical changeTHE mess just keeps spreading. Two months after Enron filed for Chapter 11, the reverberations from the Texas-based energy-trading firm's bankruptcy might have been expected to fade; instead, they are growing. On Capitol Hill, politicians are engaged in an investigative orgy not seen since Whitewater, with the blame pinned variously on the company's managers, its directors, its auditors and its bankers, as well as on the Bush administration; indeed on anybody

" Only issue was the guy's response time which was a bit long, which made me a bit anxious. Reached out to the help desk and they helped me out, turns out the tutors aren't all from US which meant there was a time difference. No issues on the quality. "
