It is more than just the biggest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history. The collapse of Enron is a tale of greed, hubris, corporate dishonesty, loss of security, and shaken trust in the American economic system. More importantly, Enron´s collapse marks the end of one era, and the start of a new one. The Marketplace Special Report: Blind Trust goes beyond the avalanche of Enron-related headlines. Marketplace host David Brancaccio leads a cast of analysts, reporters, commentators, opinion-leaders (including economist Paul Krugman and former SEC Chairman Arthur Leavitt) - even actors and cartoonists - toward a ´´final draft´´ version of the Enron story and the six important lessons to be learned:The Enron story is bigger than a series of passing scandals: it´s a watershed event.Enron was caused by corporate, and even cultural, hubris.Enron represents a costly betrayal of trust - one with the potential to damage the American economic system.Enron reveals the precarious state of what Americans understand about economics. Enron isn´t the end of the ´new economy´: in a bigger sense, it´s just the start of it.Enron is the great warning shot for a new economic era.This special report isn´t about ´´who-did-what-to-whom,´´ nor ´´what-did-they-know-and-when-did-they-know-it.´´ Instead, Blind Trust will step back from the noise to put the Enron drama in a greater historical context.
