In his article about the right time for parents to let their children survive on their own, he revealed some interesting statistics. His article showed that while a significant percentage of millennials still receive some support with paying their bills from their parents, research indicates that they have more than 20 times savings as compared more than half the entire US population. According to his article, 47% of American millennials still depend on their parents to help out in paying some of their bills, which include cell phone bills, groceries, clothing, and mortgage. Tabar questioned the financial health of the parents’ commitment to sacrifice their funds for their children who are clearly able to afford their expenses.

He advises parents of children who have a steady income to evaluate their financial situation and find out how millennials can start to handle their expenses. This way, parents can secure their financial health and assist the child-adults in taking responsibility for their expenditures.  You can find additional articles from Samir Tabar on his HuffPost contributor profile, as well as his SlideShare page.

Kyle Bass in the Center of Another Storm

Kyle Bass is a billionaire according to Wikipedia. He is a man both loved and hated depending on which side of the political spectrum speaks about him. His latest efforts, allied with Erich Spangenberg, are to attack outdated patents on drugs and medical applications. These so called “zombie” patents prohibit the copying and reproduction of equivalent and less costly generic products. Bass and Spangenberg together formed the Coalition for Affordable Drugs, CAD attacking 33 patents which stand in the way of generic reproduction and hence lower drug and medical application costs. Their efforts are being challenged by some in the media as frivolous and self serving.

Bass founded Hayman Capital, a hedge fund, in 2006 in Dallas, Texas. As an investment strategy Bass is putting his money where his mouth is. He and Hayman Capital are investing in companies that would benefit when these “zombie” patents are overturned and generic production begins. They are using a complicated, sophisticated strategy called shorting, which is betting that a company’s value, its current stock price decreases in the future.

Kyle Bass had a meteoric rise to fortune and fame when he sensed that the sub prime mortgage situation in America was out of control and would soon implode shattering the American economy. While everyone in America was buying real estate, taking advantage of the banking institution’s liberal lending policy. Bass was shorting the sub prime mortgage market and he would realize a fortune. In layman’s terms, a bank loan needs a guarantor for that part of the loan which is not covered by assets. Real estate has been a very stable investment for both the bank and the borrower, but when economic conditions deteriorated and real estate values began their decline, the value of the loan decreases.

Borrowers owed more for their real estate than the value of the real estate, itself. Borrowing and hence lending stopped and the American economy plunged along with the value of motgaged real estate. Kyle Bass had positioned himself to profit when this calamity ensued. It did and he profited enormously.

Kyle Bass will not move out of the spotlight. It is good for his business and may be good for those who want to see ridiculously high drug prices and “Big Pharma” be brought down.

The efforts of Kyle Bass and Erich Spangenberg forming CAD seem altruistic but the strategy of Bass and Hayman Capital of positioning themselves to take financial advantage from the efforts of their Coalition for Affordable Drugs seem to be more monetary than altruistic. The true nature of their, seemingly noble, efforts will be determined sometime in the distant future.  Some will always regard Bass as a desperate gambler, but who knows the real story.
