In Prison, Bernie Madoff is Cornering the Market on Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate

Market Watch quotes Steve Fishman, who is the producer of a new audio series on Madoff:
Bernie Madoff, who ran a nearly $65 billion Ponzi scheme, is one of the biggest criminals in human history..
“Bernie really was a successful businessman with quite original insights into the market, and he’s continued applying his business instincts in prison,” Fishman said. “At one point, he cornered the hot chocolate market. He bought up every package of Swiss Miss from the commissary and sold it for a profit in the prison yard. He monopolized hot chocolate! He made it so that, if you wanted any, you had to go through Bernie.”
