The financial expert Michaela Hönig, Professor of business administration at the Frankfurt University for Applied Sciences, referred to Q as a game of money.

Responded to the accusation of pyramid scheme founder Wilf says to that it was normally to the shift of money. The rate of return, such as that of the shareholder of a company receives, will then be funded with the money invested in a new shareholder.
