Can I name a great corporation today? I'm not about to try and then some day get egg on my face, like the pundits who touted Enron before its colossal fall and afterwards found their faces and stories displayed in Business Week.

At the top of it was Fannie May, charged at about the same time by the SEC of having violated its rules for years, and Fannie Mae was not the only undeserving company on the list.[2] Or, like GE that kept emerging as "the most admired company," yet "has a long history of unethical and illegal practices."[3]
