        The Madoff Affair Teacher's Guide

        Students will learn to look at financial information for characteristics that make for good investments, with this Teacher's Guide to "The Madoff Affair." The FRONTLINE film unravels the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme. Billions of dollars were channeled to Bernard Madoff’s investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. There were allegations that Madoff was “front-running” or operating a Ponzi scheme, which the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigated several times over the last two decades. But Madoff remained untouched until Dec. 11, 2008, when he admitted it was all “one big lie.”
