iview: Enron: the smartest guys in the room

Enron: The smartest guys in the room has been on my to-watch list for a long time, so when I saw it on ABC iview I thought it was worth trying to find the time to have a look. It’s another picture of what it means to be human: the greed, the desire to avoid being found out, and the ability of the well-connected to avoid (or postpone) having to answer for their wrong-doing. A cautionary tale. The scenes around the California blackout were probably the worst of human nature on display. One minor quibble: do we really need to see related stock footage when we’re establishing that one of the staff used to frequent “gentlemens’ clubs”?
