Published: October 8, 2013
A look back at editorial cartoons satirizing the issues facing retirement funds and money managers from 2000 to 2009.
The Enron accounting scandal, revealed in October 2001, eventually led to the company's bankruptcy in December 2001 -- the largest bankruptcy reorganization in U.S. history at that time. A consequence of the auditing failure was the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxeley Act. The scandal also led to the collapse of accounting firm Arthur Andersen in 2002.
