I wonder how many Ponzi schemes are actually going on as I write this note.

"It took me five minutes to know it was a fraud. It took me another almost four hours of mathematical modelling to prove that it was a fraud."
I spilled my tea.

Strange how attorney David Boies is being interviewed here about Madoff’s fraud, while later he sat on the board of directors of Theranos, a company that was running a $4 billion medical scam.

Harry Markopolos is a true hero. He found the truth and tried to tell everyone. And nobody would listen. They looked the other way. Now people listen to him.

60 Minutes: So, either way he was doing something illegal.
HM: Either way I knew he was going to go to prison.

Markopolos is right. Most lawyers are lousy at finance. The requirement to work at the SEC should be a double degree in finance/accounting and law, and at least 5 years experience on Wall Street. Never happen though.
