Information flow can reveal dirty deeds

HUB-AND-SPOKE OF DECEIT: When Enron employees communicated about legitimate projects, e-mails were reciprocal and information was shared widely (right), but communications about an illicit project (left) reveal a sparse network with a central, informed clique and isolated external players.

Wouldn't you see the same type of illicit graph in most investment banks?
Many of the subunits in investment banks tend to operate as clique groups where information is consumed rather than shared or exchanged.
Yeah, I would expect to see this in any organization with a very defined hierarchy -- big corporations, the military, lots of stuff. But it makes sense that things are easier to hide that way, too.
Banks, corporations and the military? Sounds about right..
