1919, right after the First World War. The financial markets are in total chaos. Charles Ponzi, who had just arrived in Boston, presents himself with a brilliant financial system. He persuades some investors with a plan to invest in European reply coupons, which were never produced. Instead, he used the initial funds to pay dividends, and to fill in the gaps he organized new fundraising with new investors.
This system, which lasted for a year, eventually collapsed because of divergent blanks in the accounting system, which had the effect of driving the Ponzi scheme into bankruptcy. Similar systems have emerged throughout the last century, with increasingly "promising" and complex investment plans. The term "Ponzi scheme" has even become part of professional financial jargon.
In this game, players are financial professionals who raise money by announcing investment plans in different industries. On a given day, the players must pay the promised interest. In addition, players can trade these virtual industries through insider trading. When a player fails to pay the interest, the game ends immediately. All players who "survived" score points according to their virtual industries.
