what is a ponzi scheme ?

hard cash on a briefcase

a ponzi scheme is a fraud where the previous investors are paid off from the deposits made by the fresh investors

a bank is a legal ponzi – it has the license to take money from anyone and pay off the previous depositors

but if an individual ( like bernie madoff ) does it – it becomes illegal – funny isn’t it ? how an institution with a license can get way with even a ponzi scheme while others cannot

bernie madoff was an ex-chairman of the nasdaq stock change in the usa – so he definitely had some insider knowledge on how things work …
