I remember learning in 1994 the world's smartest woman, Hillary, turned $1,000 into $100,000 in a year trading cattle futures. At the time I suggested Goldman Sachs (GS) raise a $10 billion fund and give it to Hillary to manage for two years. At the end of two years the $10 billion will be $100 trillion and GS will be able to divide the spoils as follows: $3 trillion to GS, $48.5 trillion to the investors, $24.25 trillion to Uncle Sam and the balance to Hillary. My cut of GS $3 trillion, a "mere" $30 billion. Hey Hank, consider it. I don't want to think about how big the fund would be after three years. We would all be eating Merle Haggard's "Rainbow Stew", 1999. By the way, a similiar plan was floated in 1720 in England called the "South Sea Bubble". It ended with a crash.
PS. Hank, do you think GS could find a $300 million a year job for me in product development?
