History of the pyramid scheme
The story of the financial pyramid all my life Paradise worked in the field of Economics. She considered herself one of the best specialists. Many simply wondered how she was able to work for so many years in one place and not be dismissed under the article. Raya kept her secrets for a very long time, but her granddaughter Nastya began to grow up, and someone needs to pass on their knowledge. Many years ago, Raya, far from politics, made a unique political move.
She managed to go through the procedure of merging with criminal structures. It was easy to do. Her connections were beneficial to the local authority and they secretly married their children. She is a son, and authority is a daughter. The time they were together was not easy for them, but it was money. Constant risk was rewarded with a good amount of money. Raya was sometimes caught by the entire district Department, but each time transparent hints of financial fraud ended in the absence of evidence. Raisa was the only and unique candidate in her position as boss and rested on her laurels.
But one day her reputation was seriously questioned. And began continuous checks. It was said that they were testing her for her long tongue, which she could not keep between her teeth. But the reason, as always, was banal and was that money stopped coming in. And a man who is used to living without denying himself anything is ready for anything for money. That’s what happened to her, too. The criminal structure where our heroine was located was built on the principle of a pyramid. Naturally, the authorities were at the top of the built creation. The bribe was collected from the lower layers and thus always had money at the top. But once the financial structure collapsed under the pressure of more serious organizations. Raisa, along with the Manager, tried to transfer her guilt to other people. For which the press and television were connected. And as soon as the inspectors arrived, compromising articles were written and videos were shot on the people indicated by the radio. Sometimes this did not coincide with the real picture, but the influence and money of the pyramid top did their job, and the rest of the mass only had to endure in silence the lack of money, non-payment of wages on time and terrible pressure in order to somehow stay in jobs.
It was already the distant nineties. When Raechka finished remembering those times and put aside her knitting, her granddaughter ran into the room. “Grandma, I decided to enter the faculty of Economics. I’ll be like you. Look what my boyfriend gave me,” and she held out a transparent pyramid. Raya turned cold inside: “what’s the name of the boy you’re Dating?”. “We call him by his nickname – the Pirate. You know how cool he is. He has his own car and a Bank account. He wants to marry me and gave me this gift.” Raya’s grandmother turned away to hide her tears. And suddenly she remembered the words of one of those who were not paid a salary: “You will remember us more than once. You will cry again when Nastya grows up.” And once again she realized the bitter truth – there is nothing secret that does not become clear. And a new pyrmamida rose before her eyes, where the Central figure will now be her favorite granddaughter Nastenka in the role of the Bride.
Should we still punish those who have already punished themselves? And the subject of the article was suggested by life itself.
