That being the aforementioned?
Lew Spellman. He's the one I told you about who had the idea of bulldozing 4MM homes. The President of the hedge fund I worked for last summer got his MBA from here and took Spellman in 1997. Said all Spellman talked about was the tech bubble which was coming in 2-3 years. The Porftolio Manager this summer took Spellman in 2006, and said all he was talking about was the pending financial crisis. Spellman is the one I told you about who invented TIPS and has a billion dollar lawsuit ongoing with the Govt over it.
All Spellman has talked about this semester is a US sovereign default, and where to go to avoid it.
