Enron: Wouldja Believe, Trial of the Week?


This Christian Science Monitor report warns: The Enron trial (jury selection started today) will be more 12 sleeping men than 12 angry men:

"I think people are going to be surprised at how boring most parts of the trial will be," says Nancy Rapoport, a bankruptcy expert and dean of the University of Houston law school. "Watching grass grow and paint dry will have more excitement. There will be some good stuff, but the good stuff will be punctuated by a lot of monotonous stuff."

A set of interviews from the January 2006 Reason tried to make sense of Sarbanes-Oxley, the corporate accounting law overhaul largely inspired by Enron shenanigans.
