Bernie Madoff, May You Burn, Baby, Burn

With everything else going on in the world of global finance these days, I have been remiss in not commenting on Bernie Madoff. I saw a clip a week or so ago showing the “hellhole” in which he currently exists in Lower Manhattan. Even for a hellhole, he deserves worse.
Aside from that, I have heard speculation from a variety of sources that his wife Ruth was very deeply involved in the masterminding and execution of the scam. In addition, there have been clips – although not widely broadcasted – openly speculating that Bernie was closely connected to organized crime.
This story certainly goes beyond Bernie Madoff, and I can only hope that our authorities get to the bottom of it. The authorities would do well to engage Harry Markopolos in the process.
The FT provides a fabulous overview of the Madoff list of victims: Where Is Madoff’s $50 Bln Loss?
