I would pay 2% of my investment and 20% of my profits, annually no less, for some guy to buy GLD, AU and C for me. Yes I would!

That 2/20, coupled with his own personal investments in his funds netted Paulson the richest annual haul ever - $5 billion.

And his tax rate?  ~15% like all the other masters of the universe, since most of their income falls under capital gains tax.  

When you figure your taxes, if you pay more than 15% then you're paying more than Paulson, Cohen, Ackman and others.  Good thing they got their tax break extensions this past year.  

Trickle down economics.....   we should see these tax breaks filter though our economy this next year.

The trickle down poverty of Obamanomics seems to work rather well though.

the trickle-down theory has worked throughout history of businessmen forging new business and everyone benefits directly or indirectly... but this trickle-down theory isn't working reversing the system to actually suck from society using a ponzi scheme called the US Govt and a system called 'wealth transfer' of 'taxpayer bailouts' ...Bush and Obumma fuked it up big time

Hey William You Bastard!  You are getting better as a troll...and that is bad news.

Nice job diverting attention from the real debate of this article, which is: If Buffet and Paulson are dumping Skank of Amerika (BAC), then shouldn't everybody else be running for the exits?

Rather, you drop in for a random, negative comment, against PMs. 

In your troll world there is nothing to see here...don't sell your Spank of Amerika (BAC) shares and diversify into PMs because as Mr. Makey would say "that's bad, M'kay"

Here's a tune you might find useful for your next drive-by dissing of PMs:  just replace the word "drugs" with "gold"

I will not feel any compassion for you whatsoever should the day come when you are giving hand jobs for silver (I'm quite sure you will never be able to give a hand job for gold).

Only SAC holdings that matter are the Phase 2/3 drugs. Pretty much a guaranteed Phase 3/NDA success if recent addition.

Paulson is overrated.

Real, patriotic, FED-supporter, meat-eating men invest in stocks nowadays.

Only rednecks living in Montana shacks invest in gold.

Pm's are a good way to save.

It helps to be diversified. some land, some stocks, some paper and some physical. A garden. some livestock. gravity feed water. Firewood for warmth. You know. Diversified.

Bwaney Fwank deserves an 'Owwscar' for his acting performance in 'Nightmare on Dem Street - The Mortgage Monster' claiming he had "nothing to do" with the complete destruction of the US property market. The siquel has Bwaney wanting to play the role of the US Govt in the rental sector and is called not surprisingly 'Nightmare on Dem Street II - Rental Rapeville' ...God Bless (help!) America if this pathalogically dysfunctional Dem-olition man ever gets the funding to fuk-up the US rental market too!!!
