OK, I do have a question. Where is the money?
Madoff had $50 - 65 billion of client money. That includes embedded gains so I'll assume it was $30 - 40 billion at the time that the clients and feeder funds gave it to him. He made no trades - that is a fact. The WSJ is saying that his net worth is $826 million. Poof.
There is no way that he turned $30 billion into $826 million by doing nothing. Can someone please find that money?
