A capitalist who's no longer at work ...
This unfortunate is Jeff Skilling*, quondam CEO of Enron: he is currently serving a sentence of 24 years, 4 months and paid a fine of $ 45 million.
Let's remind ourselves what he did: this is the indictment with which he and two other Enron officers were charged:
"engaged in a wide-ranging scheme to deceive the investing public … about the true performance of Enron’s businesses by: (a) manipulating Enron’s publicly reported financial results; and (b) making public statements and representations about Enron’s financial performance and results that were false and misleading … [and] enriched themselves as a result of the scheme through salary, bonuses, grants of stock and stock options, other profits, and prestige within their professions and communities ... concealing large losses, write-downs and other negative information … masking the true magnitude of debt and other obligations …"
Friday competition: can you think of anyone else - perhaps nearer to home - who might prima facie have a similar case to answer ? (no libel, please)
* interest declared: Skilling is *ahem* a personal acquaintance ...
