You cannot say one man crushed the economy of America, but Madoff came very close to that.

Madoff formed the Wall Street firm Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC in 1960. He was the chairman of the company until his arrest on December 11, 2008. As a top market maker business on Wall Street, his company bypassed specialist firms by directly executing orders over the counter from retail brokers.
