Financial planner, Russ Thornton, posted a link to this Neil Boortz piece on his facebook page. It’s a comparison of Madoff’s scheme vs. the Social Security scheme. I like this graphic, which I copied and resized so it would fit on my blog:
Boortz isn’t defending Madoff. Rather, he’s showing that Social Security really isn’t any different from what Madoff did.
Anyway, I thought it was an interesting comparison. Thanks for the link, Russ.
