A great article for the rest of you killing time at work [#permalink] New post 21 Oct 2008, 06:00
A hedge-funder who got an 870 percent gain last year quits and writes a memorable farewell letter:

"I was in this game for the money. The low hanging fruit, i.e. idiots whose parents paid for prep school, Yale, and then the Harvard MBA, was there for the taking. These people who were (often) truly not worthy of the education they received (or supposedly received) rose to the top of companies such as AIG, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers and all levels of our government. All of this behavior supporting the Aristocracy, only ended up making it easier for me to find people stupid enough to take the other side of my trades. God bless America."

this article reflects my feelings toward life and the world. But that's all the more reason to get a MBA, to be the catalyst for change.
