Description

Energy Club Movie Night, moderated by Dr. Brian Fleck.

How can we talk energy without talking Enron? Enron dives from the seventh largest US company to bankruptcy in less than a year in this tale told chronologically. The emphasis is on human drama, from suicide to 20,000 people sacked: the personalities of Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, Lou Pai, and Andy Fastow dominate.

Come watch how Enron maneuvered in California’s deregulated electricity market, and examine parallels to Alberta (if any). A brief discussion will follow the movie.
