This book is a succinct warning on the frauds occurring in some parts of the corporate world. It argues forcefully to lift the veil of the corporate structure in order to fix accountability for poor corporate governance. The minority shareholders with virtually no power to run the affairs of the corporation actually pay for the sins of promoters—directors and top management who effectively run the corporation. Manipulations in companies’ accounts and share prices may increase the wealth of the top management.
The world we live in is willy-nilly becoming more transparent. Those in positions of power and those who wield discretionary authority have to necessarily become answerable for their actions. Yet the incidence of financial frauds and criminal activity in business organisations is on the rise. What drives wealthy individuals who have everything money can buy but still cannot contain their greed?
The book is a well-researched compilation of the large number of crimes committed by corporates over the last many years; it covers them all, not just once but many times over, in various situations and contexts. Not only a ‘must read’ but a ‘must be kept’ in one’s personal and professional library!
First compendium of crimes…most of the cases covered are of recent vintage and contemporary…the fact that writer has managed to pack in brief summaries of nearly 500 frauds and scams is commendable. His understanding of the subject and ability to communicate them crisply is a highlight of this book…. The book is a welcome addition. It can be read overtime and you can dip into any page.
A robust compilation of corporate scams and frauds across the world…the author has done extensive research and carried out in-depth analyses of public records to collate information on different types of frauds…the book scores on its ability to demonstrate how corporate frauds have evolved over the years.
“Not only a ‘must read’ but a ‘must be kept’ in one’s personal and professional library!”
The piece of work generates an awareness of frauds that led to corporate fiascos at different parts of the world at different times…. The book leaves a lingering impact of the theme on the minds of the reader… To me it is Truth Well Told…
