Obscenely Greedy Hedge Funder Plays Fake Robin Hood

The mega-rich hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones is not the Robin Hood-like figure he would like the world to believe he is.

To expose his blatant hypocrisy, Brave New Films has partnered with a group called HedgeClippers, which exposes the mechanisms hedge funds and billionaires like Jones use to influence government and politics to expand their wealth.

They have made a film to be used in conjunction with clever activism. The film will be projected on the side of the building where the annual Robin Hood Foundation gala is taking place. The Foundation is honoring Jones for all his so-called good work.

But in reality, what Tudor Jones gives away to charity is dwarfed by his efforts on behalf of dubious for-profit colleges, privatized prisons, anti-immigrant policies, stand-your-ground gun laws, anti-environment lawsuits, or more tax cuts and loopholes for the wealthy.
