portugal

In 1988, as an 18 year old, I bought a one-way flight to Southern Portugal.  I had been living in England. My plan was to ride my bike back to the U.K.  I had a paltry $400, clearly an inadequate sum for the trip.  But I was dumb enough to think I was loaded. Fortunately, …

How I Failed A Hedge Fund Manager

Many of my graduating high school students eventually land careers in finance.  That’s where the money is.  I live in Singapore, one of the world’s largest banking districts, so their aspirations make sense.  A rich private school, one block from Wall Street, would see much the same thing.
