Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The producers of Frontline examine an oversight system that failed in this look at the stratospheric rise and sudden collapse of Enron. Why did the watchdog system created to protect investors fail in shining a light on Enron's dubious financial underpinnings? Interviews with investor advocates, SEC officials, corporate executes, and members of congress offer unprecedented insight into the ways that market deregulation and conflict of interest between analysts and the companies they were hired to evaluate threw a sizable wrench into the system devised to shield stockholders from investment fraud.
