Penn and Teller are in perfect agreement with us on 'MLM'.

As Penn and Teller's expert opinion of so called 'MLM' as a pseudo-scientific swindle, is in perfect agreement with our's, then, since the 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson has labelled our opinion bullshit, by simple extrapolation, he has already decided (without even watching the 'Easy Money' episode of 'Penn and Teller's Bullshit') that they are talking bullshit. However, according to Mr. Steadson, to make this statement of fact, is a lie.
Laughably, Mr. Steadson's latest proud boast that bankruptcy court documents proved that some people have 'made millions of dollars' out of 'Amway's' so-called 'Business Opportunity,' is more reality-inverting 'MLM' bullshit.
Don't forget, Shyam, in order to attract fresh victims, Bernie Madoff and his wealthy criminal associates claimed that some people were making millions out of his fake 'Hedge Fund.'
As ever, our esteemed friend Robert FitzPatrick is perfectly correct in his published analysis. What Penn and Teller's hard-hitting, but humorous, show, 'Easy Money,' revealed, is what the mainstream media (with a few notable exceptions) has been too lazy, and/or scared, and/or corrupt, and/or ignorant, to put clearly before the general public.
Despite all the reality-inverting bullshit, for 50+ years, the overall failure/drop-out rate of so-called 'Multilevel Marketing Business Opportunites' has been effectively 100%, because these cruel scams have had no significant or sustainable source of revenue other than their own participants. The insignificant percentage of persons who have taken large quantities of cash out of these centrally-controlled, unviable closed-markets were liars and racketeers -economic 'alchemists' whose profits, exactly like those of Bernie Madoff and his wealthy criminal associates, actually derived from a heavily-disguised form of theft.
Half a century of evidence proves that so-called 'MLM' has not been a viable income opportunity for countless millions of failed participants around the globe. In the adult world of quantifiable reality, pernicious, blame-the-victim 'MLM' swindles have been the economic, and psychological, equivalent of swallowing poison.
Mr. Steadson is the vile de facto agent of vile US-based racketeers whose Internet propaganda activities are designed to promote fraud and prevent victims from making complaint. Thus, Mr. Steadson and his de facto bosses still risk indictment, heavy fines and imprisonment under the US Federal Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970 and Penn and Teller's recent show must have helped bring this inevitable prosecution much closer.

The fact someone considers Robert FitzPatrick an "expert" on MLM is in itself enough to know they're clueless on the topic.

Indeed, anyone who has paid for FitzPatrick's "expertise" has in fact been the victim of a scammer.

Perhaps this youngman has not seen the comments of Andhra Pradesh High Court on MLM. Of course, he might say that High Court justices are also not experts on MLM.

The fact that IBOFB thinks he is an expert on Amway is in itself enough to know that he is arrogant.

Indeed if anyyone thinks IBOFB tells the "truth about amway", they have likely been scammed as well.

legal scan - clearly they are not. I'd be curious to here which part of years and years of hard work they believe is "quick and easy money".

By the definition they appear to be using, every industry in a capitalist society is "quick and easy money" Buy a ticket to a bollywood movie and the profits flow up the the supply chain. The AP judges would appear to believe that is "quick & easy money" since the producers, actors, film distributors etc etc were not personally involved in the final transaction.

One would hate to think what they think of the music and book industry, which are virtually entirely based around the concept of royalty payments.

And what do they think of the sharemarket, where one can earn dividends based on the final efforts of others?

Their opinion that developing an Amway business is "quick and easy money" is wrong. Anyone who doesn't believe me, I challenge to be a distributor for 6 months and find out for themselves.
