Wealthy investor diversify with Hedge Fund Manager's human capital and do not diversify with investment securities.

A person briefed on the matter and close to the firm said the amount of investor money recruited by Mr. Mezvinsky is not large, amounting to less than 10 percent of the firm’s total outside capital. Clinton supporters also say there are more direct ways to cultivate favor with the family, such as giving to the foundation, where Chelsea Clinton is vice chairwoman, than by investing with a hedge fund that her husband co-founded.

For Clintons, a Hedge Fund in the Family

Does anyone think that everyone should have access to investing in a Hedge Fund and not just the upper class?

Why did congress makes laws where only the wealthy can have access to the smartest investor. You can lose all your money in a Bond Company that declared bankruptcy after buying Mortgage Backed Securities that Moody's credit declared AA.

Politician say they want better for America and equality and opportunity but laws prevent that.

I'd like to see multiple young and bright people from Wyandotte with passion for the finance who spent all his time getting good grades and go to college be able to accept money from Wyandotte, or other lower income area and make them rich. Why else would state and federal being paying education money to provide equality?

I dunno.

I think I would have a hard time giving a Mezvinsky any money.

Gender equality is an irrelevant topic in today times to me, but some people might argue that it could have a ways to go. Birth of a child, stay at home mothers, and a man who has a better resume because of a non lapse in the workplace would be the argument for those who disagree.

Nicola Horlick states, in paraphrasing, that men often do not get past the beauty of women first, natural biology there, and are slow to see the intangible of a woman's intellects.

Turkey Financial Minister Mehmet Simsek

Banks Bankrupt in 2000 were jailed bankrupt owners. Raccoony laws of the entire family being responsible for debt for erroneous mistakes is interesting. I'm thinking Dick Fuld and Bernie Maddoff family. Bankrupt protecting is great but I like a person's being really responsible for risking their family as well for criminal negligence and not just taking a risk.

Taxes the people and not the business is Turkey for upstart economy but U.S. hasn't changed ours. Fiscal Police might be offsetting Economic growth. IMO. U.S. Tax model needs changing as we are a mature economy with more business and less people.

I can answer the last question--no.

Zachary Mider on Influence of Hedge Funds on Washington

Tax Bill Loopholes May Benefit Wall Street's Wealthiest
"People don't like the estate tax, even though almost no one pays it. About 0.2%"

If your smart enough to gain the money, you can get around the estate tax, if lucky with the gain of money, probably not.

The trappings of wealth and power.

"She sported manicured nails, wore designer clothes and drove an Audi: all the trappings of wealth, an yet in her heart she could not be happy."

"Trappings of wealth" refers to all of the external signs or marks of wealth. For example, if someone is wearing a very expensive tailormade suit, an expensive watch, drives a Lamborghini and lives in Beverly Hills, you could say that they are decked out with or display all of the trappings of wealth. A more modest wealthy person, such as Warren Buffet, can live without the trappings of wealth. "Trappings of office" is another common expression: a private limousine and a personal jet belong to the trappings of office when one is president. Originally, "trappings" meant all of the ornaments that signified the wearer's status: the king's robes and crown, the bishop's crosier, etc. I hope that helps.

I'm thinking this "information" belongs in a different category. Still thinking what that would be. But not politics.
