Boards and CEOs and CFOs who participated in backdating were stealing from shareholders in real life knowing that most investors wouldn't even think about it as long as their own stock was going up. They depended on it. As long as everyone's making money, a few of us stealing some of the money being made wasn't a problem.

If people making $20million are willing to lie/steal to make $25million, how can we believe that anything they say & do is not for the sole purpose of making even more money without concern as to employees/customers/stock owners/health/pollution/... ?
