Kyle Bass; The Investments Gambler

Every investor in the world and any other person with business interests have heard of this founder of Hyman Capital Management which is a Dallas-based fund. This is from his continued gambling about the current state of the economy and his said geniality since 2008 after he made a prediction about the mortgage crisis which came true. From his script and directives in 2006 many thinks, he is somehow a genius and media have offered him numerous platforms to discuss market economy many of which what he says is never coming true.

Recently, Bass took an interview with halftime Report to discuss the current market situation. He thinks that the real issue affecting China is not many investors thin it is that is its lending being at the peak but its banking system. The banking system he relates with a time when Europe was at the verge of collapsing all they were needed to do was to change their banking system Chinas Banking system he says has grown to over 400% in a period of 8 years whereas it’s not performing well. However, Bass comments come at a time when his Dallas Foundation is running to the drains. His actions no longer have a positive effect with the foundation raging from his close allies like Christina the Argentina’s president.

Bass explains the current credit cycle and says if it makes losses like let say 10%, there will be a very high margin of 3.5 trillion dollars. This he says China’s banking system is the worst in the world basing from its numerous exports in comparison to the dollar. The credit cycle of Asia is out of hands unless China makes changes to its banking before then. This will not only affect Asia but Europe too by the end of the year 2016 to making a loss of 10% – 20%. Bass thinks what other united states investors are seeing as the end of the world is not actually the end of the world. But who would not agree that his distinctive views are simply from his economic illiteracy that has seen his foundation fall immensely.

What is being seen as a global financial crisis now, Bass is not seeing it like that more of a crisis. But he sees that the United States stocks are going to go low and increase at the end of the year. He does not see this as a problem that could lead to the development of a global crisis at all. He thinks since stocks have risen to 40% as compared to 10% ten years ago it’s a great change that can help manage the crisis. However, there is the massive credit boom that will affect the markets little bit. This comes at a time when Bass life is going haywire. Allegedly, he has confessed at one point that life is not easy especially when you see other people winning and you are not winning. His said foundation recorded a massive loss of about 30% a very large blow to Bass influence in the investment world.
