Kyle Bass is the founder and CEO of Hayman Capital Management. He developed a following after correctly predicting the 2008 banking collapse. According to his critics, he hasn’t been successful at much else.
As time has gone on, Bass has made one prediction after another — all wrong. The bad part is he has usually said it on a national show like Fox Business News or CNBC’s Mad Money.
Along with bad business advice, he was making alliances with dangerous autocrats like Argentina’s Kristina Fernandez de Kircher. Also under a ton of scrutiny, Fernandez de Kirchner is viewed as the worst thing to ever happen to the country.
He has also involved himself with Erich Spangenberg, CEO of the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. Spangenberg, also viewed as a fraud and con man, has a habit of challenging patents then once the price drops, he buys up the stock and makes a killing.
