Former CEO, Goldman Sachs; former CEO, MF Global
Miller gets in trouble in part because he starts moving around to cover up a poor trading loss and then aggravates his predicament through reckless behavior in a vehicle in a highway. Corzine’s downward career arc is somewhat similar. While governor of New Jersey, he was injured in a car accident—he wasn’t the driver, but it turned out he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. His career in finance came to an end when MF Global, the company where he served as CEO, went bust. It was revealed that the firm began moving customers’ money around in problematic ways, in part to cover for trading losses stemming from strategies that Corzine devised.
