It seems Zero Hedge is looking its criticial edge ...

Let me recommend all of you to have go over to the eXileD and see Mark Ames's profile of the man

Why not respond to a spammer?  It can be fun.

Losing its critical edge?  What do you think Tyler throws in your face everyday on the main page?

Personally I think Leo understands things quite well:

As big and as smart as Bridgewater is, the world's financial oligarchs are bigger, stronger, more corrupt and more devious, always scheming on how to fuck the system to make ever more profits and record bonuses. Yup, at the end of the day, the slimy weasels will win and the rottenness of the world will prevail. 

Seems to sum it up well.  That doesn't mean our lives have to be shitty however.

By the way that exiledonline site is pathetic.  "Have you no shame!  Donate now" is quite telling.

Good article Leo. Bankers/Oligarchs will fight deflation and as FOFOA says will be first in line for the credit money.

They will not outrun the Bear but they will outrun the other citizens

So Ray looks like a British patrician actor and surrounds himself with good looking young men. AND beats the markets year after year. Hmmmm...sounds like a gay Bernie Madoff to me.

I've already shared with you the time I met Ray Dalio back in 2004 when I

I also remember in that meeting when I told Ray I was much more concerned bout deflation than inflation (still am but the banksters will fight it tooth and nail), and he responded: "Son, what's your track record?," a polite way of saying "what the fuck do you know about managing money, kid?"
###

Leo , please ...
deflation in 2004.. who are you kidding too whom?

and another one,
Leo , dont want to spoil your memories but you got Ray's question "Son, what's your track record" wrong..
what he meant that what were your accomplishments to even discuss deflation/inflation?

having or not having track record have nothing to do w/ defaltion/inflation..

The NY Mag article is excellent...you don't have to worry about Ray leo...he has his time horizon and will step away from the game probably around this time next year (or sooner). Whether Bridgewater will survive without him is another story.

The debt boogeyman is overdone and once this week passes and they sign some deals in Brussels and Washington, the world will wake up to another beautiful day.

 

I have to tell you Leo, that is nauseating. I translate that to "the crimes will continue unabated".

Call it what you want, crime, it's just business as usual!

Begging irony for all to see:

"I back down from nobody -- not Ray Dalio, not George Soros -- nobody intimidates me! I couldn't care less if you have more money than God, if I think you're full of shit, I'll tell it to you in your face!"

 

Hey Leo, you're full of it

And Ray, extend and pretend will continue. The debt boogeyman is overdone and once this week passes and they sign some deals in Brussels and Washington, the world will wake up to another beautiful day.

 

Leo Kolivakis -vs- Ray Dalio.

I like being the odd guy out, working on the fringes.

 

How is lauding assholes like Miacheal Sabia being the odd guy out?...you are so entreched in the establishment you could not tell right from wrong.

My unicorn generates her own weather on command.  You really should spring for some of the options next time.

You seem to forget that; if his fund blows up, he makes money.  If the fund is successful, then he makes money.
