I'd rather throw my money in a fire than give Belfort a dime.

Right, but word on publisher row is that he is making dollar-one restitution off book and ancillary revenue.

This statement only goes to prove the old adage.....there IS a sucker born every minute.

A. You says:
According to the New York Times, he's paying investors only 50 percent of his gross income -- until they receive $110 million. So far, he has paid about $660,000.
I think Jordan ought to be forced to pay more than 50 percent of his gross income -- or to get a second job. Obviously, he has plenty of free time, as he has been lurking on Amazon, insulting people who don't like his pathetic book.
Since the book is already a commercial failure, and royalties are not going to pay his debts off, the government ought to force him to get an honest job -- at McDonald's for example. It's going to take a lot of burgers to pay the 109 million you still owe Jordan, so you'd better start soon.
