Secrets of the Knight: Sir Allen Stanford and the Missing Billions

这几天CNBC播的一个纪录片,另一个Madoff的故事

人类的很多关系,友情、爱情、,都是建立在信任上的,而谁能想到风光一时的亿万富翁,原来只是一个骗子

很多人一生的心血打了水漂,因为信任这些人的光环,更是因为自己的贪念

16%的年息,敢于作出这种承诺的恐怕只有巨骗,每个人都明白

The moment we want to believe something, we suddenly see all the arguments for it, and become blind to the arguments against it.  
By George Bernard Shaw
因为选择了去相信,即使明知道是谎言,但所有的理性在那一刻都被虚幻的美好淹没了
