Examine differences between two of the most important types of money management companies or “designated traders”—mutual funds and hedge funds—and contrast the trading strategies they pursue. Learn why index funds are a good investment option, and about the trading technique called a “short sale.” Then consider whether hedge funds have the power to trigger a financial crisis.
