Inhaltsangabe

An intriguing look at Bernie Madoff the man, and his scam.

Madoff with the Money is a deeply disturbing portrait of Bernie Madoff, based on dozens of exclusive, news-making interviews. From the values Madoff was taught growing up in the working-class town of Laurelton, Queens, to his high-life on Wall Street and the super-rich enclaves of Palm Beach and the French Riviera, best-selling author Jerry Oppenheimer follows the disgraced money manager's trail as he works his way up the social and economic ladder, and eventually scams his trusting clients in a $50-billion Ponzi scheme.

Through Oppenheimer's in-depth reporting, you'll discover new revelations in this startling case, and become familiar with the trusting victims - ranging from non-profit Jewish charities to the likes of seemingly sophisticated individuals, such as actress Jane Fonda, who would "like to shake Madoff until his teeth fall out"; the scion of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire, who lost a bundle and was forced to rent out rooms in his house; and New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg. There's even Madoff's own sister-in-law, and talk show host Larry King, who apparently didn't ask the right questions when he invested. All lost their much-needed life savings, while others saw fortunes small and large evaporate in the greedy financial operations of one of history's all-time charlatans.
