How the Rich Get Richer

Not by earning it so it must be by theft, huh?

For nearly 700 lucky Merrill Lynch employees, 2008 was a million-dollar year, even though the brokerage firm lost $27 billion.

On Dec. 10, the day before Bernard L. Madoff was arrested, his wife, Ruth, withdrew $10 million from a brokerage firm partly owned by her husband, according a state regulatory complaint filed in Boston.

 

It was her second withdrawal in less than three weeks — the first one, on Nov. 25, had been for $5.5 million, the complaint said.
