Hedge funds seek refuge from unfair European regulations — FT.com: "Why did Brussels indulge in such a great act of displacement activity? One hedge consultant received the explanation from a Belgian MEP. “It is simple,” he said. “If you are in a bar and a fight breaks out, you do not hit the person who started the fight but the person you have always wanted to hit.” This would be funny if it was not serious. Nobody feels sorry for hedge funds but the reason the EU’s institutions left banks alone for so long is more worrisome."
