1.Recently I saw a short documentary on how children are economically illiterate.
This was First World countries!
They all know religious and advertising terms already - but they know nothing on the economy.
Then is struck me - I've been through university/college, and I don't know what a hedge-fund is!
What I read on Wikipedia didn't help. It just confused me more.
And then it seemed like they have a lot of laws and conspiracy attached to them too.
Can anybody describe it practically, and why some of these funds are controversial?
If I wanted to be in a hedge-fund, what would I have to do?
2.Then I wanted to know, who is Ron Paul?
The wiki says he's a doctor and conservative, but a liberal kinda conservative.
Why is he always on ATS?
