Investment Strategies may not be universalized in terms of markets, IMHO, as Patrick Wolff, though Chess Grand Master he is. The Globalization is not a fashion that changes periodically.

If hedge fund managers believe one thing and the reality is altogether different then bubbles will take place again and again. Why not AIG and other insurers come with an insurance product to insure against this mismatch?
