    I wonder how many people died while “The Milken Institute” meeting was taking place. I can’t recall either, but I think Milken made a lot of people poor with penny stocks or some scam like that.

      Milken was once known as the “Junk Bond King.” Wikipedia:

      Milken was indicted for racketeering and securities fraud in 1989 in an insider trading investigation. As the result of a plea bargain, he pled guilty to securities and reporting violations but not to racketeering or insider trading. Milken was sentenced to ten years in prison, fined $600 million, and permanently barred from the securities industry by the Securities and Exchange Commission. His sentence was later reduced to two years for cooperating with testimony against his former colleagues and for good behavior.

      His critics cited him as the epitome of Wall Street greed during the 1980s, and nicknamed him the “Junk Bond King”.
