|Notes: Writing in the aftermath of the dotcom boom-and-bust, and fall of Enron, Global Crossing and Worldcom, Partnoy presents a greed-driven culture replete with accounting scandals and dubious management practices. This at a time of fallen stock prices might have seemed a time of chastened executives and bankers, an epilogue of folly. Yet it was in many ways a taste of things to come, for the markets were to rally thence up into the what proved a more devastating whirlwind of Wall Street bankers, inflated property values and sub-prime lending.
