DISCUSSION

I have to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching hedge fund parasites get a good and proper comeuppance while simultaneously demonstrating the need for aggressive Wall Street reform.

Like I said in the thread late last week, we need confiscatory taxation on generating money without generating real gains for the broader economy. There should be a sort of Miller test for this. I couldn’t define this (at least not in a forum thread; I’m a layperson with a finance minor, not a lawmaker) but I know it when I see it.

There is no reason, not even in a true capital market economy (which the US doesn’t have; it’s a corporate oligarchy, not a free market), for hedge funds to exist.
