As reported by The Wall Street Journal’s Gregory Zuckerman and Steve Eder, there's one thing Mr. John Paulson said hadn't changed—his bullishness. "The problems in the U.S. can be solved," he has said. The U.S. isn't Europe, he told them. The U.S. economy and stock market will improve, he concluded. How other hedge fund managers think the economy will eventually play out will be part of the discussions at Hedge Funds Happy Hour, http://www.HFHappyHour.com, on Tuesday October 11, a unique opportunity for exclusive networking with alternative investing professionals.
