Oppenheimer and other hedge funds reportedly drove Chrysler into bankruptcy!?
Reports here in Michigan are that Oppenheimer and other "greedy" hedge funds (unlike Chrysler's major lenders and UAW who agreed to concessions) REFUSED! to re-negotiate their claims and forced Chrysler into bankruptcy. What do you think about that? Do you think that Americans would be justified in pulling their investments out of Oppenheimer and the other hedge funds going with other more reasonable investment options with the hopes that Oppenheimer receives a taste of its own medicine (i.e. a bankruptcy of its own?) Also when I changed jobs and moved my 401 K money out of Oppenheimer they grabbed several hundred dollars in secret unilateral and hidden "account closing" and (double dipping) "account transfer fees. When i wrote to object, they ignored me... laughing all the way to the bank with my money. Does anyone else have a similar story?
