Slumdog Millionaire

New York Magazinecame out with a clever cover showing Bernie Madoff as Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight. The article discusses Madoff's "slumdog" beginnings, his constant resentment of the upperclass, his facial ticks, avoidance of anything with curves ("he drank out of square drinking glasses, stored his pencils in square holders, tossed his trash into square cans"), and his ultimate demise. My question - since Madoff orchestrated the largest financial scam ever ($50B), will the Ponzi Scheme be renamed the Madoff Scheme?
