Known for their impact on U.S. politics, the Koch brothers, Charles and David, believed their strategies had worked, placing them in prime position to elect a Republican president in 2016. Unfortunately, David Koch could not foresee Donald Trumps’ entering the election campaign. In the Vanity Fair article “Can the Koch Brothers Stop Trump?” Charles not only laments their lack of influence over the 2016 campaign but shares some of their reasons for opposing Trump. A serious dilemma looms; whether to invest in attacks against the Democratic presidential candidate or devote campaign resources to block Trump’s becoming the Republican Presidential nominee.
Charles, the older brother, doesn’t believe in party labels. After graduating from M.I.T, the self-described “classical liberal” focused on expanding a free market that would support his family’s business goals. After a failed attempt to build a viable third party during the 1970’s, the Libertarians, the Kochs changed strategies to work through an existing party, the Republicans. Using their Libertarian network, the Kochs would inject their philosophies, changing the party’s platform. During the 2012 campaign, Obama outmaneuvered their candidate, Mitt Romney. Trump has displaced their 2016 Libertarian candidate, captured media attention and espouses policies that Charles Koch feels would end America’s free society.
The article continues, describing Koch’s covert efforts to harness the political system, describes the depth of the Trump dilemma, then discusses how Koch’s efforts have not only decentralized the political process but has inspired other wealthy mega-donors to shun existing political institutions to strike out on their own. The article concludes that these efforts have decreased the Koch’s carefully cultivated influence and have led to an era if uncertainty for Charles Koch’s family, businesses and politics.

Highland Capital Management is the hedge fund founded by James Dondero that operates out of Dallas, Texas. His fund has become one of the most powerful in America after over two decades of wise management. Jim has successfully invested all over the world, and he keeps a small portion in the American markets to this day. He uses his own investment techniques that have been perfected by his team over the years, and this article explains the ten newest holdings that have been picked up by the company over the course of the year.
#1: Only 25% Is In America
Jim has made Highland Capital Management one of the most diverse hedge funds in North America during his tenure, and the company has managed to move much of its holdings overseas. Overseas investment is an easy way to make money when certain portions of the American markets are not fruitful.
#2: New To The Fund
There are ten new acquisitions of note in the HCM portfolio, and Jim Dondero has chosen these acquisitions along with his team to help increase revenue in America. Amazon and Eagle Pharmaceuticals stock were purchased on the strength of both companies individually, and Jim chose to spread the money around between the finance sector, retail sector and healthcare sector. It is difficult to find someone more interested in diversity of investment than Jim Dondero.
#3: Moving Into New Arenas
These two industries alone are the strongest in America today, and Jim wants to continue to move away from entertainment to help pay for new acquisitions. The fund at HCM has over three billion dollars under management in North America alone, and the fund is using that money to make a shift to the industries that Jim believes will be most profitable.
Jim knows that he has a responsibility and duty to his clients to use their money well, and this shift in his fund is helping his clients make more money than ever before. The Highland Capital Management fund is turning to technology and the health sector for more holdings, and those holdings promise to make even more money than Jim has given his clients in the past.
Diehl views gold as a long term investment. It does not really matter what is happening in the short term to those who choose to invest in it as much as the overall trends. Gold is to be used as more of a safe haven to store an individual’s wealth, a type of wealth insurance of sorts. This is one of the reasons that Diehl developed a precious metals IRA through US Money Reserve. This lets individuals fund their retirement through investments in precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. This allows their wealth to be tied to physical goods rather than stuck at the mercy of geopolitical and monetary events.
Recently there had been some turmoil that had affected the gold market significantly. Diehl attributes this to several factors, two of them being the financial collapse of 2008 and the development of gold ETFs.
Another major factor has been the continued rise of the dollar. This has made gold look like an attractive investment, particularly to those in other countries. Recently, as much as 65% of gold purchases were made by individuals in China or India.
This segues in to the future of gold, as explained in a recent radio interview. Diehl believes that gold will remain an attractive investment, or perhaps become even more attractive in the coming years despite possible short term volatility in the markets. This is due to the rise of the middle class worldwide, particularly in BRIC countries. The increase in the middle class leads to an increase in demand for precious metals. Along with this, another key factor that could lead to gold being a great investment is that the dollar eventually must come down. When this happens gold will become much cheaper which could present a major buying opportunity for those who are looking to get in to precious metals.
Not all of Jon Urbana’s videos are informational however. For instance, in this video, Jon Urbana captured a beautiful shot of an Alaskan moose eating from some brush.

George Soros the billionaire hedge fund investor and Jim Dondero the co-founder of hedge fund investment firm Highland Capital Management believe that China is going to drag the world into another meltdown in 2016, and it could be worse than the 2008 meltdown. Soros has been very vocal about China’s attempt to keep their economic growth rate up by manipulating their currency and injecting billions of dollars in reserves into the domestic economy and the local banks.
Jim Dondero told an interviewer recently that Highland Capital Management has always had assets in emerging markets. Jim co-founded the Dallas-based hedge fund firm in 1993 with investment wiz, Mark Okada. James was successful in the investment industry before he started Highland Capital, but the success they have achieved in the 24 years they have been together has made their past accomplishments look small in comparison. Highland Capital has more than $16 billion in assets under management and the company has offices in Brazil, Korea, Singapore and two offices in the United States.
The economic battle with China has been out in the open since the Chinese stock market meltdown in July 2015. China’s recent economic forecasts have not been met, and their projections for future economic growth have been inflated, according to Dondero. China’s economy may only grow by 4.0 percent in 2016 and that spells trouble for the rest of the world. China’s economic growth has been the engine on the global economic train for the last ten years, but Dondero thinks that engine is running out of steam.
The main issue in Chinese debacle is hard to nail down because there is more than one issue and all of them are serious according to Jim Dondero. Chinese investors are putting their money in offshore investments, and the attempt to turn the Chinese economy into a consumer based economy is a long way off, according to investors like Dondero and Soros that study the Chinese situation.
The Bloomberg.com article mentioned the fact that the yuan could drop in value by more than 15 percent in 2016. The Chinese will undoubtedly continue to control the yuan, and they will have to continue to pump billions of dollars into their domestic economy to save face. Jim Dondero and Soros believe the Chinese are going to export deflation around the world in 2016, and stock markets around the globe will have one of the worst years in recent history.
Bloomberg.com thinks hedge fund investors will continue to short-sell the onshore and off shore yuan. Short-selling the yuan has been going on since 2014, and it’s not going to stop this year, according to the Bloomberg.com article.
