Summary: Just who was the man whose name has become synonymous with the classic "rob-Peter-to-pay-Paul" scam in which money from new investors is used to reward earlier ones?nbsp; In December 1919, he was an unknown thirty-eight-year-old, self-educated Italian immigrantnbsp;with a borrowed two-hundred dollars in his pocket.nbsp; Six months later, he was Boston's famed "wizard of finance," lionized by the public and politicians alike.nbsp; Based on exclusive interviews with people who knew Charles Ponzi, lent him their money, and exposed him, Donald Dunn'snbsp; Ponzi recreates both one of America's most notorious and colorful financial con artistsnbsp;and the mad money-hungry era in which he thrived.
