Bernie Madoff: American Greed's Biggest Cons


  • the commentator sounds like he is chewing a cigar.

  • Cant wait to see the Donald Trump American greed episode.

  • So people are upset he used capitalism to his advantage? The blame lies with those that invested with him too. I never have never will invest in the stock market. There is an entire eternity of afterlife to invest in and make a future. يا أيها الذين آمنوا أنفقوا مما رزقناكم من قبل أن يأتي يوم لا بيع فيه ولا خلة ولا شفاعة ۗ والكافرون هم الظالمون O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you before there comes a Day in which there is no exchange and no friendship and no intercession. And the disbelievers - they are the wrongdoers. [Quran 2 : 254 ] مثل الذين ينفقون أموالهم في سبيل الله كمثل حبة أنبتت سبع سنابل في كل سنبلة مائة حبة ۗ والله يضاعف لمن يشاء ۗ والله واسع عليم The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing. [Quran 2 : 261 ] الذين ينفقون أموالهم في سبيل الله ثم لا يتبعون ما أنفقوا منا ولا أذى ۙ لهم أجرهم عند ربهم ولا خوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders [of it] or [other] injury will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. [Quran 2 : 262 ] يا أيها الذين آمنوا أنفقوا من طيبات ما كسبتم ومما أخرجنا لكم من الأرض ۖ ولا تيمموا الخبيث منه تنفقون ولستم بآخذيه إلا أن تغمضوا فيه ۚ واعلموا أن الله غني حميد O you who have believed, spend from the good things which you have earned and from that which We have produced for you from the earth. And do not aim toward the defective therefrom, spending [from that] while you would not take it [yourself] except with closed eyes. And know that Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy. [Quran 2 : 267 ] وللآخرة خير لك من الأولى And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life]. [Quran 93 : 4 ]

  • You are not a criminal,if you had stolen and robbed the rich.

  • What I don't get with all the money he received, why he didn't get involved with a Trade Program which would have returned 100% returns or more. Enough to pay back what he had stolen and more. The answer is he had no intention to do the right thing. The last question would be where is the money?

  • Oh people this life is temporary And Afterlife is permanent in paradise All fun with no sadness whatsoever Oh people obey Allah the Only God who Created you read Quran and Follow the last Messenger Muhammed peace be upon him So you succeed and be happy in life and Enter Paradise afterlife.

  • BIGGEST DIVERSION IN HISTORY. Madoff had nothing to do with the financial crisis and while people were shouting his name on the street, they forgot who the real criminals were: THE BANKERS.

    • None of the bankers were arrested or even prosecuted. Actually no investigation took place neither even though there was plenty of evidence of fraud.

  • Where is all the money you can't spend 65 billion

    • Some went to pay his investors as "gains"

  • I don't feel sorry for these greedy people

  • He had help. There no way one man can con 70 billion dollars. Not just his family but there tons of people who work in the stock exchange or maybe people in the fcc..

    • Most definitely. Like you said you can’t take that amount of money and no one noticed it’s doesn’t add up

  • He deserves no compassion. He had zero when he was intentionally defrauding his victims.

  • This is nothing comparing to the corona scam and people who will make Trillions from it

  • People are stupid they would have had a better chance investing in stock themselves

  • Not nearly as corrupt as our rigger and chief.

  • Made off Mate off

  • I guess you could say " Bernie Made- Off "

  • A lot of these people knew what he was doing even his family as long as they were getting that loot they didn’t care until he got caught

  • Made of lol

  • I thought he already died of a heart attack in prison? 🤨 he ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT DESERVE ANY TYPE OF EARLY RELEASE!!!!😡😡😡😡

  • Want to hear something more than a little depressing? America would have been far better off had we elected Bernie Madoff as president rather than Trump.

    • Yeah great idea rip off America just like the other Presidents did

    • You should plant a couple of trees to compensate for the oxygen you are stealing from Earth

  • Compassionate early release lmao I hope covid makes their way in to them. He goes to rich people prison anyways, not the typical prison that we see in the movies.

  • No joke But he would have gotten a shorter sentence for double murder

  • CNBC PRIME why did you take down Ferris Rafauli’s House Tour video??????

  • Hollywood will make a movie about him

    • @Jerry Wen the wizard of lies

    • @Mike Dav what is it called???

    • Already did

  • Bernie Madoff's crime? Stealing from the 1%. That's their job! LOL

    • Celebrities and Europe's royal houses were also scammed, legitimate or made up in Frderic Prinz von Anhalt's case. They all fell for the con.

    • I disagree whole heartingly, People in Wall Street do stuff like this all the time, Mergers, Short selling, whatever, If Madoff stuck with the Small Fry's? He would not be in Jail..

    • Also Madoff isn’t a “hero of the people” in any sense. He straight up stole from people so he could live a lavish life and had no regret for his actions.

    • That’s just not true, ordinary investors lost billions. That’s normal, everyday people losing their houses and life savings because Madoff was a fraud and intentionally decieved his employees and investors.
