Sarbaes Oxly Wednesday, July 31, 2002 H.R.3763 - The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 A lot has been made, perhaps without justification, of the July 30, 2002 passage of H.R. 3763, The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 ("Sarbanes-Oxley" or The Act). Having read the Act, I suspect that the great praise is unfounded. I intend to address three issues presented within the act. First, I will address stock options as considered (or neglected, as the case may be) by Sarbanes-Oxley. Second, I will address the creati

The framers of the American Constitution spent a great deal of time and effort into making sure this power wasn\'t too centralized in one aspect of the government.

Effects of Enron
Effects of Enron Enron On the surface, the motives behind decisions and events leading to Enron\'s downfall appear simple enough: individual and collective greed born in an atmosphere of market euphoria and corporate arrogance. Hardly anyone—the company, its employees, analysts or individual investors—wanted to believe the company was too good to be true. So, for a while, hardly anyone did. Many kept on buying the stock, the corporate mantra and the dream. In the meantime, the company made m

Ethics and Legal Obligations
Ethics and Legal Obligations For most organizations, values statements are simply rhetoric that sits on a fancy plaque on the wall. The real values are seen in the halls, not on the walls. High performing organizations are clear about their values and about what they translate into in day-to-day behavior. They use their values strategically, to guide every decision and action. The challenge with values is that they are usually vague concepts that have different meanings to different people. Ever
