James Simons

A nice story about the very famous (in these circles, see relevant posts at NEW) mathematician/physicist James Simons:

"It was radical that it was a hedge fund, but not radical that he wanted more in this world than being a math professor," Kra said.

And for a discussion of the disparity of wealth occasioned by hedge funds, see today's post at Steve Hsu's blog.
