Bebchuk et al. have produced a new version of their paper The Long-Term Effects of Hedge Fund Activism (December 2014) to be published in the June 2015 issue of the Columbia Law Review. In this revised text, the authors struggle valiantly to cope with the challenging questions a number of critics have raised about their original paper. We, among many, have taken issues with their original paper. While the revised draft by Bebchuk et al has the merit of clarifying some aspects of their study, many issues remain unresolved and new ones creep in. In this paper, we provide examples of the latter while reiterating the fundamental questions that remain unanswered.
