    Best of Greed: Madoff Behind Bars

    Best of Greed: Madoff Behind Bars

    This week Bernie Madoff announced that he is dying from kidney disease and asked a judge to grant him an early release. Last July, he asked President Donald Trump to reduce his sentence. For more than a decade, Madoff — locked away from the world as he serves a 150-year prison sentence — has been the face of greed. In December 2018, CNBC special correspondent Scott Cohn and American Greed executive producer Chuck Schaeffer went “behind bars” to uncover the Madoff of today, from the lawyers and investigators to the victims. This episode goes inside the mind of the world’s most notorious con man. Who is Madoff? What makes him tick? (Original release: 12/10/2018)
