What is Enron?
Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
The Houston-based Enron, in 2001, suffered, at the time, the largest Chapter 11 bankruptcy in history (it’s since been surpassed by Worldcom and Lehman Brothers). It became embroiled in scandal over irregular accounting practices after it was revealed that much of its profits and revenue resulted of deals with limited partnerships that it controlled. The scandal was so big that it also ruined “Big Five” accounting firm Arthur Andersen.
