What would be the Enron version?

You have two cows. You form 24 subsidiaries to manage the cows 24 hours a
day, with options to buy rights to the other cow-hours. One subsidiary buys
out all the others, increasing its herd by 24 times. You then sell cow
stock based on the business model of doing this every day for a year. At
the end of the year, you have sold accounting rights to 24^365 cows.
(That's a 6 followed by 503 zeros!)

Then you shred the original two cows.
