Unfounded Rumor Of The Morning, DE Shaw Edition


Very supposedly layoffs are planned to go down "some time this week, possibly as early as today" at DE Shaw. Apparently, not to worry, the cuts "will not affect any A-team players. This is just a cutting of fat." Given that the firm went through axings as recently as June ("a result of efficiency right-sizing analysis") we're skeptical. If you (David) know anything, let us know.
