Quixtar model is mathematically flawed
HOLY SMOKES: Quixtar model is inherently flawed!! Majority will lose money no matter what! It's just mathematics.
As the bottom level IBOs will make up more than 80% of the whole LOS, of ANY LOS, and if they are not profitable, whole pyramid is negative. Tell me if someone who did 100 PV is profitable? He / she earns $7.5 and spends much more than that to make a 100 PV. Here is cost of being an IBO to give a rough idea.
Here is a great analysis of Quixtar Model by lawBlawg.
