    …is a thing people, knowing his position on the country, have probably asked Jim Rogers before.  And don’t think he hasn’t thought of it! Unfortunately, the investor is spoken for. Having said that, Rogers is thrilled at the prospect of his daughters’, ages 4 and 9 years-old, marrying one of China’s native sons and is currently accepting applications from potential suitors.

    What Does Raj Rajaratnam’s Laugh Sound Like When Someone’s Said Something He Deems Rip-Roaringly Funny?

    It’s been noted that the government’s key edge in winning the Raj Rajaratnam case may be the use of wiretaps, with the prosecution saying in its opening statement yesterday that jurors would hear taped conversations (phone calls and otherwise) that will prove the Galleon founder guilty of insider trading.
