    Maybe MF Global Invested $700mm Of Customer Funds In A Few Hands On Full Tilt Poker?

    Here is the conventional wisdom on MF Global, which I’ve sort of defended when provoked: [I]n many ways, it’s a very satisfying morality tale. We’re in this time of Occupy Wall Street, a lot of people are already dissatisfied with Wall Street in general, and this is moral hazard — excessive risk-taking. Here, the firm […]

    Jon Corzine Could Use A Hand Here

    As previously discussed, MF Global needs to sell (at least part of) itself and fast. Who wants to break themselves off a piece of Jon Corzine’s firm? According to the Journal, MF-G “earlier had a roster of up to 10 potential partners, but has narrowed that list in recent days to fewer than five.” Whether […]
