The head of Elliott Management has developed a uniquely adversarial, and immensely profitable, way of doing business. “Aggressive, tenacious and litigious to a fault,' intent on doing whatever it takes to win, Singer deploys his riches in GOP politics, where he is a top donor and a powerful influence on the Party & its President;  In the press, Singer and similar investors have been compared to vultures, wolves, and hyenas. Bloomberg has called Singer “aggressive, tenacious and litigious to a fault,” anointing him “The World’s Most Feared Investor.”

This article in The New Yorker is a long read, says Diane Ravitch who posted the link and added: " It will introduce you to a subject about which you are probably unfamiliar. It describes the world of a billionaire investor. Singer's story, "is relevant to this blog because he is not only a billionaire but he gives generously to charter schools and Republican causes. Charter schools are the favorite hobby of hedge fund managers, equity investors, and Wall Street. These groups make large campaign contributions to influential politicians. They are underwriting the destruction of public education. They don't know much about education, but they know markets. It is important for you to understand their thinking."
