Bernie Madoff is in jail for life for using other peoples money under false pretenses in a Ponzi scheme that fooled some of Americas most sophisticated investors. This is an example of fraud, not capitalism.
Raj Rajaratnam is in jail for 11 years for insider trading of securities of Galleon Group, the hedge fund he founded. This is an example of violating a law passed by Congress restricting capitalism. If Raj had been a member of Congress, which exempted itself from that insider trading law, he would not be in jail today.

Aside from a lawsuit from 38,000 ranchers, wheat growers and other farmers to get their private funds back.... nothing.
But I must say, those farmers are armed and have certain capabilities. Tony Soprano never met Bubba one shot. Deo Vindice.
