Hedge fund manager Ken Griffin said that his time in Chicago is limited in "years, not decades," unless something major changes with regard to crime, during a speech at the Economic Club of Chicago on Monday.
"It's becoming ever more difficult to have this as our global headquarters, a city which has so much violence," Griffin said. "I mean Chicago is like Afghanistan, on a good day, and that's a problem."
He said he saw "25 bullet shots in the glass window of the retail space" in the building he lives in.
“It just tells you, like, how deep crime runs in this city,” Griffin said. “There is nowhere, where you can feel safe today walking home at 9:30 at night and you worry about your kids coming to and from school.”
