An interesting juxtaposition in the news today - Jeffrey Skilling, the former head of Enron,
was sentenced to 24 years in prison
for his role in driving Enron into the ground.
Also in the news today, you may remember there was a plot a while back to steal the secret formula
of Coke and sell it to Pepsi. well, those two have
plead guilty, and according to the article could
fact up to 10 years in prison.
I'm not exactly sure what conclusions I am drawing from this, but it seems
to me that 'selling a secret formula' and 'bankrupting a company and sending tens of thousands into unemployment
and/or poverty' should have a somewhat higher difference in their punishment level.
