But to the author's credit, it is a long & complicated story to tell & she ultimately did a good job of presenting all the factors that contributed to the massive fraud. The part about SEC really exposed how incompetent the people there were, for whatever reason. What happened should serve as a guide for the SEC & other regulatory bodies on hiring experienced & knowledgeable people in the industry they're regulating, & not just paper pushers with law degrees.
This is probably as good as it gets, when it comes to trying to explain what happened in the Madoff scheme at this point in time. The only people who can tell the story better are Madoff himself, possibly DiPascali, Ruth, & other family members.
