Character Personae

From the Paper:

"The financial manipulation and deception started from the top management and involved partner firms and auditors. Enron created and partnered with companies such as RADR, Chewco, and Southampton in order to divert money and hide debts. RADR sold windmills to Enron, and sold these windmills back to RADR for a profit that was pocketed by Enron officials. Chewco was formed by Enron's top executives in order to buy shares from California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS). The partnership was then used to transfer Enron's debts to Chewco's. Lastly, Southampton was used by several executives to divert around $19 million to their own pockets."
