He was all pumped about China. Haven't heard much about him lately..
Funny you say that. He was all over Bloomberg today, complaining about the Fannie/Freddie fiasco. He has been short in those stocks, claiming they were a fraud for many many years. Now he thinks it was wrong for the government to step in.
He moved to Singapore a while ago so his daughter could go to school in a Mandarin speaking environment. Singapore was chosen over Taiwan as they teach Simplified rather than Traditional Chinese in Singapore.
He's still talking China. And he's right (in the long run).
