The following links pertain to the three primary original reports detailing financial practices at Microsoft, Cisco Systems and Citigroup.  It is remarkable, and perhaps the most unreported story in the business media, that Citigroup could effectively unplug the new economy.

Included in both the Citigroup and Cisco Systems reports are numerous outside links so that you can easily verify the content.  Although not copyrighted, attribution is very much appreciated and it does help me justify posting this research on the web at no cost.

Although the Microsoft and Cisco work have been widely reported in the press, the Citigroup report is probably the best place to begin, working back to reading the Cisco Systems and Microsoft work, both of which have later updates in the press archive.

27-Nov-2000: Citigroup Merger Scheme Disables Microsoft and Unplugs New Economy
22-Sept-2000: Cisco Systems Watered Stock Scheme
18-Nov-1999: Microsoft Financial Pyramid Scheme

Also very helpful is the  Watered stock definition and purpose of this research.
