Unless you work for the Securities and Exchange Commission—and probably even if you do—the plague of scandals has left you as confused as an Enron auditor. Was it WorldCom’s Bernie Ebbers or Global Crossing’s Gary Winnick who made $735 million from his telecom firm’s stock options?

Here, to clear it all up, are Slate’s Corporate Scandal Trading Cards—the fastest guide to America’s top 10 business crackups. (And they even come with the Slate Guarantee: You can trade our cards with your friends—and they won’t immediately lose 99 percent of their value!)
