Amaranth Meltdown: DealBreaker Reader Poll Blames Nick Maounis, Brian Hunter and Canada

The buck is supposed to stop with guys at the top, according to more than a third of DealBreaker readers voting in our most recent Reader Poll. Thirty-seven percent of you said the blame for Amaranth’s meltdown should rest upon the shoulders of the fund’s founder, Nick Maounis. Brian Hunter, the man who ran the energy trades that landed the fund in hot water came in a distant second place, garnering just twenty-two percent of the votes, just ahead of Canada, which got twenty percent of the votes (presumably all coming from South Park fans).
