How Harvard and Other Colleges Manage Their Endowments - YouTube
"College is expensive, but there is one place in higher education where there's no shortage of money – endowments. There's more than $616 billion worth of endowments assets in the U.S. Lawmakers are starting to questions why tuition is still rising if some schools have billions of dollars."

Running a Hedge Fund Isn’t All Bad - Bloomberg
This is of course the most obvious imaginable reason to go into the hedge fund business, and it would not be worth quoting except that you don’t see successful hedge fund managers spell it out all that often. “I just love the intellectual challenge of understanding trades and testing my belief against the markets, and the money is an accidental by-product,” is what you ordinarily say, when what you mean is “the thing I love most is how the fees just pour out of the sky.”

The Most Disrespectful Hedge Fund Letter Ever – @scheplick
I now have time to repair my health, which was destroyed by the stress I layered onto myself over the past two years, as well as my entire life – where I had to compete for spaces in universities and graduate schools, jobs and assets under management – with those who had all the advantages (rich parents) that I did not. May meritocracy be part of a new form of government, which needs to be established.

Fake News - Provoking Posts - IRR
As was mentioned in a paper published by the Harvard Business Review, The Truth About Private Equity Performance, my beef is that “overstated private equity performance [seems to be driving] investors to continue to allocate substantial capital to this asset class, despite… finding[s] that PE funds have historically underperformed broad public market indexes by about 3% per year on average.”
