[ - ] I have a major problem with hedge fund managers not paying their fair share of taxes...then using that money to easily pay for luxuries like private school while the rest of the professional class hands over 1/2 their income and struggles to even send 1 child to,private.

True story. I know a family who had a very healthy set of triplet boys. Extremely athletic, they went on to play football. One fractured vertebrae taking him out of sports in high school. Shortly thereafter the next one was hit and couldn't get up. He's in his 20s now and he uses a walker to get around. Third one played football in college. For a while they ran pieces about how that one would carry his brother up and down the stairs in their home. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. There's no terrific answer and IA that we are losing perspective because we're so caught up in the anxieties of the moment.

You can go to the drugstore and get a credit card (like Amex) for cash and then use up what you buy. Can't be traced, make a profile without a picture, say you are "separated." Create a GMail account just for this purpose. [ Reply | More ]

Nope, since 2010 NY has been no-fault. You can fuck around all you want and it can't be held against you. [ Reply | More ]

Oh, but to add, they can charge you back in the division of assets for any money you spend on dating sites, so you'll have to reimburse his side of the property. Who knows, maybe you'll both be a wash. Get credit card statements for stuff he does with other women if you do divorce. [ Reply | More ]

Entenmann's. Wow. Brings back memories. My mom used to bring home the strudel, chocolate covered donuts, coffee cake donuts, chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies. So weird remembering how much sweet junk we used to regularly have in the house. I'm not crazy about nutrition (McDonalds doesn't bother me) but since college I've been off sugary things and didn't bring them home a lot just because they never appealed to me in the store. My kids have turned out the same, more or less. They'll eat some of their birthday cake and then lose interest. If I bring home a dozen donuts once a year half of them will go uneaten.

I actually keep nice cookies, various teas, frozen appetizers, nice cheese, crackers, olives, etc. on hand - just in case. Generally also have some champagne in the fridge. I like to be ready to celebrate. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] It seems like investment banks are permanently less profitable, with huge layoffs, and hedge funds are the same. Is the golden era of Big Finance finally over? Who is making the big bucks anymore?? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If you are the hedge fund GP (owner) you still make money whether or not the hedge fund portfolio managers or the investors make money. If you are the C-suite or near C-suite at the investment banks, same thing you still make money. But yes, the mid-level jobs are paying a lot less with a lot less job security. Try to get a job at a big HF where they don't fire underperformers... E.g. Elliott, or DE Shaw. You can be mediocre and keep your job for years in some places, whereas you are bounced in a few months at a place like Millennium or Citadel [ Reply | More ]

It's scary. The bottom third of hedge funds will get wipe out. Investment banks don't even want to trade with them because of credit risk. The European investment banks (Deutsche, CS, UBS, Barclays) are leaving investment banking in the US...they just can't meet the regulatory capital requirements. Pure investment banks like GS and MS might make it, but not at the profit margins they once enjoyed. [ Reply | More ]
