Remember how Steve Jobs avoided problems over backdated options a few years ago? Less well known, perhaps, is the fact that his CFO did not, even though the backdating benefited Jobs above all.

Well, a new study finds that no one should be surprised at this. Reason: CEOs who are founders, like Jobs, tend to scapegoat their CFOs more often than do chief executives brought in from the outside.
