Via Ezra, n+1 has an interview with a hedge fund manager. Like Ezra said, I don't know much about that world, so it's interesting to heard what he has to say. Interestingly, the guy they're interviewing doesn't have a background in finance, and thinks that's an asset when it comes to avoiding meltdowns like the sup-prime crisis. I tend to agree, largely because I've got an esoteric background in comparison to my job as well.
All hail the liberal arts!
