ABSTRACT
The author discusses the implications of the Bernard Madoff scandal for the financial planning profession. As it is common knowledge that fraudulent schemes are bad investment risks, the question of why anyone would even attempt them is addressed. The author makes the case that many such bad decisions are ethical lapses caused by focusing on small questions while ignoring big questions.
