Bernie Madoff is universally considered a terrible person...and apparently rightly so. But in any Ponzi scheme, people DO get rich. The early comers DO reap wild returns...that is essential to hooking the late-coming suckers.
So, Bernie is going to live in jail. Rightfully. But he did at least benefit SOMEBODY who invested with him.
Why is Al Gore still walking around?
Did Gore make anyone rich but himself with his snake-oil "carbon exchange"?
Just a question. Give it some thought.
