Ken Lay On His Show Trial
As an interesting follow up to Bill Anderson and Candice Jackson's Mises Daily Article "Is Ken Lay A Criminal?" we have Ken Lay himself saying essentially the same thing in the Washington Post. He admits that things went terribly wrong at Enron but he claims that he did nothing criminal, (if mistakes in business are criminalized then the free market is over). He asks, "Could it be that my indictment -- curiously issued two weeks before the Democratic National Convention -- is largely political?" He argues that "The legal case against me, standing alone, is a flimsy, hollow shell and reeks of politics." Good for him!
