It’s time for the latest monthly missives from Bill Gross and Paul McCulley at bond mega-firm Pimco. Both are interesting pieces, as usual, so give them a read:
- Bill Gross pretends to testify to congress, and knocks down nationalization
- Paul McCulley on saving capitalist banking from itself
I’ve written here many times about how smart I think the Pimco folks are — and McCulley’s piece in particular is very good — but do keep in mind how the firm has positioned itself in bank debt and related markets as you read. It doesn’t necessarily make their views wrong, of course, but I remain a proponent of temporary "pre-privatization".
