Recognizing bankruptcy and fraud in financial statements - 10 years after L&H, Enron, WorldCom and Parmalat

The super-storm of financial statement frauds has passed. Supervision and corporate governance have been reformed. One thing hasn’t changed: investors still feel unprotected. Auditors fail to report on continuity problems in more than 40% of the cases. Credit rating agencies don’t see more than 60% of the defaults coming.
