Hayman Capital Management Founder Kyle Bass Is Betting Against China’s Currency

The world is on the verge of another economic meltdown. That’s what economists are saying and there’s proof they are right. The European Union is a mess. Italy’s banking system is a disaster. Venezuela and Brazil are in deep recessions, and China is teetering on the edge of a massive financial collapse that could throw the rest of the world into a repeat of the 2008 financial debacle. But Kyle Bass, the founder and CEO of Dallas-based Hayman Capital Management, isn’t convinced the United States is going to be part of the global recession. Bass recently told Businessinsider.com that there is only a 40 t0 50 percent chance the United States will stop growing, economically speaking, the same points echoed on his blog.

Kyle Bass is known for being an outspoken hedge fund manager. Bass likes the attention, and he isn’t afraid to defend his comments. When Bass was asked about the presidential race, he said Clinton was best suited to be president. Trump wasn’t presidential material even though he expresses the views of millions of Americans, according to Bass. Clinton has always been a Wall Street favorite, so the Bass comments were expected.

China was another topic, and Bass had a lot to say about the Chinese. Mr. Bass believes China is experiencing the worst economic downturn in the last 41 years. He also said the Chinese spent trillions of dollars in capital reserves in 2015 to protect their stock market and their currency. That trend can’t continue, and that’s why Bass is betting millions that the yuan will be devalued in 2016. Bass made a similar bet in 2008 when he bet the market was going to crash. In fact, Bass has a history of risky bets.

Hedge fund investors are not the most respected members of the financial world. In an industry filled with questionable transactions and crazy deals, hedge fund managers are at the top of the list when it comes to not playing by the book. Unfortunately, Kyle Bass is known as one of those hedge fund managers that values money over sound business practices. He prove that when he took General Motors side during the power steering and airbag crisis, and once again when Argentina defaulted on their bonds several years ago.

What is NutriMost? Everything You Need To Know

Losing weight relatively quickly is hard enough, but keeping that weight off is even harder. For some people who have particular body types or certain genetic abnormalities this process becomes even more challenging. For these individuals, simple diet and exercise just are not enough and they often turn to some kind of weight loss program. But there is a problem with most weight loss programs, one which is almost never touched upon – most of them simply do not work.
The reason why most weight loss programs do not work is not complicated, it simply stems from the fact that most weight loss dietary and supplement plans are “flat plans” meaning they are “one size fits all.” The reason this is such a stumbling stone for proper and healthy weight loss is that such plans do not cater to the unique properties of every individual body and rather treat them as if they are all the same. Well, not so with a new weight loss system that is rapidly gaining popularity with doctors, health advocates and weight loss gurus the nation over – NutriMost.

NutriMost boasts the impressive tagline on nutrimostrecipes.com, “Lose forty pounds in only forty days,” a offer which sounds almost too good too be true. But according to a wide litany of both professionals and patients alike this indeed is the case. And of the driving factors for the diet plans success is it’s ability to account for the individuality of the patient in every instant. You see, unlike many other diet plans NutriMost utilizes state of the art technology to accurately map out one’s body to determine what is and is not most efficient for healthy weight loss. There are no rigorous exercise regimes, no strange starvation plans, no odd life changes and no pre-packaged food which is more akin to cardboard than something you would normally find in your grocery store.  Once on the plan however, Dr. Vasquez was able to effectively shed thirty five pounds in only forty days by following five simple steps: eat organic, work vegetables into the daily diet, known different types of sugars (which to eat and which to avoid),
understand which foods work best with your physiology and lastly, take a body composition test to better understand what works for you and your lifestyle.

Chaz Dean is a hairstylist to the stars. True, most of his clients are Hollywood celebrities. However, his products are readily available to the public. We’ve all seen his famous info-commercials on QVC advertising the Wen hair-care line.

The results might shock some people.

The Experiment

The young woman put the WEN Hair Cleansing Conditioner to the test. She tested the product over a 7 day period. Here is the good news. The Wen Cleansing Conditioner system contains an exclusive all in one shampoo, and styling treatment. The young woman selected the fig formula for her limp and lifeless hair. She also took the time to document the treatments affects in photographs. In the first picture, we see a woman with rather dull and lifeless hair. Over the period, it is easy to see the remarkable changes in her hair texture. Her hair actually looks fuller and livelier. Her hair looks really good and is almost unrecognizable from the first photograph.
