“A friend of mine is actually the largest owner of agricultural land in Uruguay,” said the hedge fund manager. “He’s a year older than I am. [My fund] is somewhere [around] the 15th-largest farmers in America right now.”…When asked if this is an end-of-the-world situation, the hedge fund manager replied: “It really is. I tell my fiancée this from time to time, and I’ve stopped telling her this, because it’s not the most pleasant thought.” He pauses for a moment. “We just can’t keep living the way we’re living. It’ll end within our lifetime. We’re just going to run out of certain things. We’ll just have to learn how to adjust.” [NYO]

    Not sure buying land in a remote South American republic with a dubious tradition of political stability and legal rights is the greatest doomsday-survival scenario, unless your last name is Himmler or something.

    What fund is this guy with, please tell me I don’t have any money with his dumbass. Hedging with rising food prices, well that could be a good strategy. Talking about the end of the world? Is this guy an idiot?

    And it’ll be the end of the world before he puts a wedding ring on that girl’s finger.
