Ponzi Scheme

Based on the textbook example of financial scams, Ponzi Scheme is the term used to describe the technique Charles Ponzi employed in 1919 to operate one of the most notorious financial frauds in history. In the game Ponzi Scheme, players are scammers trying to trick investors into funding fraudulent investments with the promise of extremely high returns. You need elaborate trading skills to keep your operation afloat as long as possible, and as time goes on the dividends you need to pay every turn will only pile higher and higher! When someone declares bankruptcy, the remaining fraudster who forged the biggest shell corporation wins the game!
