The Glass Steagall Act The Glass Steagall Act was initially signed into law in 1933 after the famous stock market crash of 1929. Commercial banks had invested heavily in the stock market and after the crash, a hefty part of the population lost their savings.

Understand the requirements of written and verbal business communication 1.1 Explain why different communication methods are used in the business environment In this assessment I will be proving that I understand the requirements of written and verbal business communication. I want to start off by explaining that I work for a very diverse team, Safeguarding, Infection Control and Prevention and Tissue Viability so there is a lot of variable communication methods that I am required to use in order to succeed within my role.

This can support that fact that that the middle class was not living the American Dream and that they can’t depend on the market to help them. That was until George Bush and Barack Obama came around and started helping the middle class get back on their feet. They helped by giving money to the big businesses in need. For example, Bush gave money to Wall Street to help with the bail and Barack Obama helped by getting General Motors through bankruptcy and passing the Affordable Care
A year before, Enron falsified their books and claimed revenues of nearly $101 billion. Here is a simplified explanation of what happened. Supported by Enron (2002), the Enron Creditors Recovery Corporation created offshore accounts, allowing them to avoid taxes and raise the profitability for their company.

The professional term for this type of fraud is called round-trip trading.
Wall Street, in collusion with Washington by means of campaign financing and political donations, has been deregulating financial markets since the 80s in order to benefit themselves. Profiting from riskier and more corrupt behaviour, the relationship between Wall Street and Washington became cosier in the belief what was good for Wall Street was good for Main Street (Giltin, 2011 p.7, 10, 11). The American public began to exert their feelings of frustration with the occurrence of The Global Financial Crisis (GFC).

The feelings of distain were only further enhanced when tax payer bailouts saved Wall Street from a problem that was essentially self-created.
As a result of the demise of Enron, an issue of sustainability of the shareholder model of corporate governance has come to the forefront of economic debate all over the world. The Enron failure shows a failure of corporate governance where internal control mechanisms were short- circuited by conflicts of interest that enriched some managers at the expense of the shareholders. As a result of that it led to a complete reassessment of ‘shareholder value’ system which became dominant in the United States and United Kingdom in the 1980s and 1990s (Dore, 2006).
