The Kings of Excess, and Other Standouts


The New York Times:: Gretchen Morgenson once again comes up with a winner of a story – I think this is brilliant piece on all the crooks who are getting away with it. “Harvey Pitt, Dennis Kozlowski, Bernard J. Ebbers, Jack B. Grubman. Their crashing falls from grace helped make 2002 a year for business scandals that may never be topped. In fact, had a novelist like Anthony Trollope, the 19th-century chronicler of English society at its best and worst, invented these characters, his readers would have rejected them as caricatures. Too improbable. Too grasping. Too contemptible.”
