Vanity Fair Adds Riverboat Gambler Kyle Bass to October 2016 Summit
There is no such thing as bad press according to some pundits. And perhaps, Hayman Capital Management principal Kyle Bass is one of the best examples of this maxim. Even with all of the failed predictions of this Riverboat Gambler, Vanity Fair will feature Mr. Bass at its annual October 2016 summit.

As Argentina struggled with its financial woes, UsefulStooges.com tells us that Mr. Bass supported the country’s policy of simply “refusing to repay their debt.” Eventually, Argentina’s economy collapsed after this “Bad Decision.”

He defended General Motors for parts defects, by blaming the victim. He has an ongoing dispute with the widow of the American Sniper. And he seems to predict the collapse of Japan every year, but guess what – “Japan is still alive!” Riverboat Gambler Bass stirs the pot.
