It just seemed to revolve around the founder being a twot. 0 Vote up! OGR WINS THIS THREAD 0 Vote up! Ifangyew 0 Vote up! Barbarians at the Gate isn’t really about a scandal (despite the dramatic title). It’s more about the emergence of private equity and the invention of junk bonds on the RJR Nabisco takeover and corporate America going holy living f.uck these guys can really take out large cap corporates (albeit piling them up with what were previously considered insane levels of debt). 0 Vote up! What was the one about Enron ? 0 Vote up! Well, Lucy Prebble's play, 'Enron'. V v good even as a read. 0 Vote up! You should have pivoted to corporate crime. You seem to like criminal stuff.

Thought they were smart. Ivy league. MBAs from Wharton. Get them to change the valves on a norton manx? No chance. Ask them to strike up a blues riff on a Les Paul? You are joking. 0 Vote up! The Hard Sell if you're not bored of corporate opioid pushers. 0 Vote up! Liar's Poker is the obvious (but still true) answer Not a scandal as such - more a clash of cultures thing - there's a good book about the Essex born chap who became CEO of Olympus (or possibly Sony?) that's worth a read. Woodford I think he names as/is 0 Vote up! Bad Blood (re Theranos) was pretty good. 0 Vote up!
