The DE Shaw group is heavy into healthcare. They’re also into something else which I can’t offhand but I know he got a big reward from MacAuthur Foundation which means he’s working for the left. Paulson and Soros made a billion last year.

PS: I’ve observed that most of the Greek named companies usually track back to Leon Black, the Blackstone Group and Soros. The Blackstone Group always go to great length to explain how they came up with their name. I wonder why...:)

You might find this thread very, very interesting. George Soros ain’t alone.
