None of the above mentioned are going to have a problem putting food on the table anytime soon. Still, where would I place my bets?
Perot and Sumner dry up. For Perot it will be the much vaunted taste for municipal finance countered by a non-existent political profile, while in Sumner’s case it will be simple over-leverage in a dying industry. Meanwhile, Paul T. Jones and Goldman will become big winners as their ships right themselves. Their own bets are in – only time stands in their way, and that’s something they can both buy using planning and action (and a smattering of goodwill) as collateral.
