Hat tip to occasional links and commentary

Hedge funds are misnamed.  Very few of them are designed to hedge against risk.  Most of them are vehicles for high-risk speculation.  None of them provide capital for growing the real economy.  No trustee for other people’s money should ever invest in one.
