So, you’re probably looking at the title, wondering what this is all about. Well, since my wife has a list theme going this week, she asked me to help close it out and dream a little dream with her. And that got me thinking: what would my ultimate wish-list be this holiday season?But to understand the list, you have to understand who I think would be in the position to actually make good on it. You’d have to be a hedge fund manager. Or as I refer to them, a hedgie. A manager that managed to catch lightning in a bottle three years in a row: massive short subprime in ’07, short banks/brokers in ’08, and then long corporate debt & commodities in ’09.
It’s 200 meters (656 feet) long. It’s big enough for you to take along all of the tenants in your 3-story apartment building and still have room for the 60 crew members and your private security detail from Blackwater. It’s almost big enough you could fly a helicopter from end-to-end, and not look all that silly doing it.
