Andrew Lahde, the manager of a small hedge fund, who returned 800%+ by betting against the subprime mess, decided to end operations at the peak. He left this goodbye letter. While I do not agree on the tone of the letter, I think 90% of his points are valid and that they need to be raised. Also, not only do they need to be raised, but something needs to be done.

I am currently working on some aspects of this (yes, on top of everything else) which explains why posting will remain sporadic for a while. Sporadic means that I will write a post whenever inspiration strikes me.

Meanwhile if you have any questions, send them to myfirstname @ earlyretirementextreme.com (or leave a comment below). I’m generally reluctant to give advice since everybody’ situation is different, but I almost always have an opinion on everything ;-)
