Nocera on Arthur Andersen

Scott Simon talks to Fortune Magazine's Executive Editor, Joseph Nocera, about the Arthur Andersen trial. Nocera says this week's testimony shows that Enron was long seen as a problem internally at Andersen, and questions whether anyone at Andersen raised a red flag. Also, documents emerged this week showing Enron may have manipulated the California energy market during the state's energy crisis. Nocera says this makes the story political ... and has brought scrutiny to the whole energy trading community.
