The writer pulls many examples form corporate treasuries and financiers who broken various federal laws, thus providing a bad example of business ethics.

Personal Statement

From the Paper:

"Yet, rather than making any of these decisions, Gutfreund chose to look the other way. Upon learning of Mozer's transgressions, Gutfreund allowed him to remain an employee and did absolutely nothing to discipline him. Gutfreund took no corrective actions to prevent additional fraud, did nothing to investigate the situation more thoroughly to understand its full ramifications and did not report Mozer's actions to internal Salomon stakeholders such as legal counsel and directors. Even as these parties became aware of the situation, Gutfreund hid information he had received from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and his legal staff that would have let everyone know just how serious the situation had become. Because he delayed contact with the Federal Reserve Bank until he absolutely had no other choice, Gutfruend was perceived as trying to cover up the situation. Further, he never accepted responsibility and never issued a sincere public apology demonstrating that he was truly sorry the situation had ever happened.
"II. Key Leadership Issues
"For the most part, Gutfreund was not an effective leader. He tolerated deceit, created a culture that encouraged excessive behavior, and failed to follow through on a number of important matters. He shunned transparency and encouraged trader excesses through lavish bonuses. Further, Gutfreund did not accept responsibility for his shortcomings even after the Mozer incident created a crisis for Salomon and had never been much of a strategic leader with a long-term vision."
