How Madoff Did It (Links to an external site.)

Scott Rothstein: Prince of Darkness (Links to an external site.)

Have you ever been offered an opportunity to become involved with something you thought, or knew, to be a ‘Ponzi Scheme’?  If so, describe the situation and outcome.  If not, research and describe such a ‘scheme’ that has not been discussed in the text or videos.

Research and discuss the differing characteristics of ‘psychopaths’ versus ‘sociopaths.’  Analyze which mold you feel schemers such as Rothstein and Madoff fit best
