Abstract

The accounting profession must bear a good deal of responsibility for the current wave of corporate scandals, as must those CEOs whose watchword was greed, lackadaisical directors, projections-for-hire investment analysts, banks selling methods designed to deceive, and institutional investors asleep at the switch. One set of villains, however, have managed thus far to float beneath the radar screen and thus escape the lion-sized portion of blame that should rightly be laid at their door: lawyers.
