I never quite understood the meaning of the points system they go by on the show. What I am referring to is this type of stuff -
Artie: I'd like to borrow some money.
Tony: Since you're my friend, I'll only charge you a point and a half.
Now, are they referring to a percentage, as in 1.5%? Or would a point and a half be $1500.00?
Any help is appreciated.
points is their way of saying percentage. Pauly told the guy that he gets 10 points of whatever he makes, so he means 10%. They don't completely bankrupt their earners even though they can, they milk them until they can't pay and we know what happens when they dont pay.
