On Wall Street, no one has earned a bigger reputation for cutting companies down to size than corporate turn-around artist Albert J. Dunlap. As head of Scott Paper and, more recently, as CEO of Sunbeam, Dunlap carried out his time-tested formula as spelled out in his bluntly titled book Mean Business: boost the bottom line with swift, deep layoffs; sell off divisions; and move production to lower-wage states or abroad. Filmed at the height of Dunlap’s power, this program spotlights the practices that once served "Chainsaw Al" so well—and that have since fallen into such disfavor. (30 minutes)
