 Business Ethics
- Scandal-Plagued Samsung Chairman Quits:"...[Chairman] Lee Kun Hee [was accused] of owning some $4.5 billion worth of stock in Samsung Life, Samsung Electronics and other companies that were hidden in nearly 1,200 brokerage accounts in the name of former and current executives. Such holdings, prosecutors say, were kept secret to avoid paying hefty taxes."
