Hedge Fund Manager is Another Route to Billionaire Status
Just found this:
That truism has never been more evident than during the past four years.

But the people whose money hedge funds manage haven’t exactly hit the jackpot.

Roulette might not have been a better solution, but an S&P index fund sure would have.
