The courts already ruled that it is not a pyramid scheme because goods and services are exchanged. Someone can also chose not to build a "downline" and just retail the products. I agree they are way overpriced and would never compete in a retail store. The line they give you about the products being so much more concentrated is very questionable in my opinion.
How much profit do non corporate people make off of dial soap? How much do People in the Amway hierarchy make off of Amway soap? I would argue Amway people share more in the profits.
I'm not saying it is a great model, just a different type of pyramid. The structure I like way more are businesses like Winco where employees all own a piece. It is also the cheapest grocery store around.
