Since the Enron-affair and the Worldcom debacle in the same year 2002, the scholarly interest in business fraud and scandals has become substantially larger. The economic crisis starting in 2007-2008 has further stimulated the study of dubious financial practices, also among business and economic historians. The speakers will discuss individual scandals and crises.
