Will Enron Lead to Enhanced Retirement Security?

February 11, 2002

Abstract

The collapse of Enron brings out many tales, but none motivate action more than images of workers who now are left with little or nothing in the way of retirement plan benefits. In response, President Bush has requested legislation that would essentially remove some bars that prevent workers from selling their company stock, improve information, and limit the extent to which company officials could diversify their employer stock holdings when other workers are barred from doing so.
