Carl Icahn United Shareholders of America

Carl Icahn has announced the United Shareholders of America (USA): The Icahn Plan. Just a few weeks short of the presidential elections and most likelyanticipating a new regulatory regime in financial services Carl Icahn is aggregating voices and hoping to create additional influence. His comments are usually well respected but he has a habit of making big complaints, getting onto boards and then making some kind of a deal with exit features for himself. Not sure if I want to surf with this guy even if he is very rich and does not need a day job
