Yes, he deserved it, he made the company and its stockholders billions of dollars. He was also a crook, but that has nothing to do with his performance as a CEO. Enron was actually an incredibly successful company and practically invented the energy trading business. The fact that some insiders got even greedier and broke the law doesn't change that. How many of you out there actually know (without googling it) what exactly Enron did wrong?

If a man's labor makes your company ten billion dollars, why is $100,000 too much money to pay him for it? That's one hundredth of one percent of the value he added.

And he's not in jail, he died.
