Who are some good examples? Jeff Skilling and Andy Fastow come to mind, as does Larry Ellison.

'Disgraced' business sociopaths are making good money talking about their misdeeds at business schools. MBAs everywhere take notes.

They're all sociopaths, OP.

Jeffrey Skilling, one of the Enron creeps. The kind of blank face you see just before they stick a knife in you.

Those are some incredible shark eyes on all those sociopaths.

I don't know whether three of my former top bosses were technically sociopaths but they sure were mean. One in particular took great delight in humiliating his "direct reports" at monthly management meetings. Another top boss, a dragon lady if there ever was one, was blamed by everyone at the company for the heart attack of one of the senior managers. The third boss reamed me out one day in front of a bunch of coworkers for something I didn't do. (He apologized later by email.)

"One in particular took great delight in humiliating his 'direct reports' at monthly management meetings."
Out of the three, that one is most likely to be a sociopath. The woman could be overcompensating to acquire respect, while the third one apologized in a private venue - sociopaths only apologize when forced to in public (they see no benefit without that gullible audience).

Marvin Davis - oil man who bought 20th Century Fox with Marc Rich. This is the man who bullied his daughter to relinquish control of her trust because he wanted the money. Grandfather to Paris Hilton's fat friend Brandon Davis.

R12: Not surprising, given what I've heard about that airline.

I have the pursed lips of Miranda Priestly, the limp fiery orange hair of a lunatic hot head, I compensate for my dinky dick with an inflated ego and overstated net worth and I've parlayed my non-existent people skills into a TV catchphrase "You're Fired!"
And you ring raiders did not mention me first?

R10, Skilling "relinquished" $45 million to Enron victoms.
[quote]Skilling — whose portrait infamously hangs in Hotel Zaza's creepy jailhouse-themed room 322 — was an icon of Houston's massive financial success in energy trading during the late 1990s. He was promoted to Enron CEO in February 2001, receiving $132 million in a single year, only to resign six months later.

Wow, he sounds horrible, R12. How does that airline survive all that bad publicity?
I've stayed at the Hotel Zaza before - it was beautiful, and the staff was very courteous. I'd never heard of their Skilling room before, but someone with sense should get rid of that shit right away.
