Find and post a link to a news article about a financial scandal in the past two years (news resources).
Summarize the scandal, and explain why it was a noteworthy event in finance.
Could this event be prevented? How did the corporation neglect signs of the scandal before it was exposed?
Each student should post a different scandal (no repeats).
Each student must make a minimum (for a chance at the best score – post early and often) of two posts for each discussion – one initial post and one reply to posts made by your peers.
The initial post must be approximately 200-250 words in length.
The reply post must be approximately 50-75 words in length.
All posts must be substantive, relevant, and respectful, and contribute value to the discussion. “I agree” types of posts are fine to make, but they do not count towards the minimum posting requirement.
Total score = 100 points each discussion.
10 points will be deducted for not meeting the word count requirements.
20 pints will be deducted for irrelevant topics.
Original post = 80 points
Reply post = 20 points
Late submissions = 2 points off per day late
