Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or maybe it will last.... Naked Capitalism reports on who owns the debt. It isn't G-S.
That mystery has finally been solved, with the help of the The Baupost Group, who unmasked themselves to The Intercept. The Baupost Group, a Boston-based hedge fund managed by billionaire Seth Klarman, owns nearly a billion dollars of Puerto Rican debt, purchased under a shell company subsidiary and hidden from public scrutiny. Baupost acquired the debt through an on-paper Delaware-based corporation named Decagon Holdings LLC, whose beneficial owner had been unknown until now.


He is known as the top campaign contributor in New England, and has been a major donor in Republican politics in Massachusetts, including largely secret support for 2016's Question 2, an ultimately unsuccessful effort to lift a state cap on charter schools. Klarman supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, calling Trump "completely unqualified for the highest office in the land."

Another case of misplaced precision. "Paul Singer" is a trope; "Jesus" is a trope. These tropes denote a two beliefs, or "value," systems expressed by people and the predictable outcome of each.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
