Description:

This paper examines the management of these two companies and asks the question of which was more corrupt than the other. Economic factors are taken into account as well as the partner organizations each company had to assist in their deception.

From the Paper:

"To construct a comparison between Enron and American Fur, it is useful to ask some questions. Were the executives at Enron more unethical than John Jacob Astor? Or was Astor more unethical than they were? Were there any indications that Astor or the Enron executives felt any social responsibility for their actions?

"To answer these questions, several factors need to be considered. The regulatory environment for a company operating in the late 1900s, Enron, differed greatly from the environment for a company operating in the early 1800s, American Fur. Dissimilar regulatory atmospheres caused the companies to act in unlike fashions even though both companies existed in a capitalistic country where the primary goal was the same for both, monetary profit. To reach the goal, both companies relied on some unethical practices."
