The United States investors have long been seen as mavericks within the world’s finance community, with more money to throw around they have been known to take more risks. This has been true in the case of Mr. Paulson, a multi-billionaire who has been making trades as of late that were quite…unimpressive. To say the least it is this type of poor insight that has resulted in a diminished value where the US dollar is concerned on the online forex exchange. The admitted lack of due diligence on the part of Mr. Paulson and his team is a lackluster showcase of what can happen in a financial faux pas. To continue doing business with suck reckless disregard for the profitability of his investments is a very bad move, and what was said a long time ago still holds true today “Pride comes before the fall.”
Mr. Paulson has to realize that investors and organizations that stay hungry, desperate, and motivated will always remain sustainable. Those who feel as if they have accomplished enough and are satisfied are doomed to stagnation, and eventually they will perish. This sort of hunger is sometimes seen as greed, although in a marketplace such as the one we are in greed is the language of victory. There is a line between greed and dishonesty, and Mr. Paulson needs to realize that the game is the same as it ever was. Those who believe that the people who have already attained amazing success will always be winners are sorely mistaken, and in fact choosing someone who is talented, motivated, and desperate to make money is the way to go.
This reliance on an established few to continue to bring wealth to their customers is an often deceivingly simple proposition, and all too often it turns out to be a bad idea. Investors need to do their own due diligence when putting their money into the market, and most of these losses can be avoided by simply investing your money yourself. This is a scary proposition for many people who do not understand the market, but this is a poor excuse for trusting another person implicitly that holds all your money. There have been numerous cases in which investors have given their money to fund managers who then short sell on investments they put their clients into the long position for…this is perfectly legal, and once you understand that you understand the situation a lot better.
