About this Item: J. Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, New Jersey, 2010. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. As new unread; boards resist opening past 60 degrees. Number line complete 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Inscribed & signed "Harry Markopolos" in black ink to the blank front endpaper; name of the lede author only. "Bernie Madoff was a king of the financial world. He'd helped create NASDAQ and founded one of the most successful broker-dealers in the industry. . . . But he was quietly running the largest hedge fund in the world, a fund that eventually . . . handled tens of billions of dollars. Harry Markopolos was a . . . little-known number cruncher sitting at a desk at a Boston equity derivatives firm analyzing investment products. When a marketer for that firm, Frank Casey, handed Harry a prospectus outlining Madoff's strategy and asked him to create a similar product, he sat down and looked at the numbers. Literally within minutes, Harry knew it was impossible to do. The numbers didn't add up. For the next ten years, Harry Markopolos and the investigative team he recruited tried desperately to warn the government, the industry, and the financial press that the largest and most successful hedge fund in the industry was a total fraud and that the respected and admired Bernie Madoff was a crook. But no one would listen. . . ." proving what sensible people should probably have known all along, that any government agency (in this case, the Securities and Exchange Commission) will eventually become nothing more than a docile lapdog to the very characters it's supposed to be "regulating." 354 pp. including index. Reduced from $240. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 006110
