Financial scandals aren't unknown in US business history, but today's growing problem of executive excesses and self serving behaviour is unprecedented in both its persistence and pervasiveness. Executives continue to plunder their companies and rip off their stockholders. This book reveals the true breadth and depth of corporate corruption - including flagrant new cases that haven't received the publicity they deserve. More important, it answers the questions that matter most: Why now? And how can we stop it? Sayles is one the world's most honoured management experts.
