How Reddit almost CRASHED the Economy with a meme.

The GameStop short squeeze has probably been one of the biggest events in recent Internet history, completely disrupting the status quo of the financial world of billionaire hedge funds. What happened with WallStreetBets, Reddit, Robinhood and the Stock Market will probably linger for years to come as a turning point in internet culture. Today we recap the events and talk about the larger implications, although there are most certainly many ramifications of this story that have yet to surface.


Interesting piece on how the stock market is being manipulated:

    Hey, Andrei I actually used this video as a source for my essay for college which is writing whether a company is trustworthy or not and I chose to write how Robinhood is not trustworthy. Wish me luck! :D

    Something like this will unlikely ever happen again. Ordinary people coordinating with each other as a whole to bring down companies can work at times when large companies slip and make huge business mistakes, but large companies also learn aggressively from such mistakes making it very unlikely that something like this would ever happen again. This isn't a revolutionary event where it is now a time when people can coordinate with each other to influence companies to a larger extent. In reality, this event only made companies less vulnerable to the power of the people because they now just learned never to repeat the same mistake again and they're now even more aggressive in watching their backs.

    If a random person is given something, or even a rich person is given something of value, they want to keep it. This is so they can have personal wealth, and “make life easier.” Only the people who don’t want to be billionaires, and resist the urge to become a “better” person than before will be respected. I would actually help the economy from what is going on because I don’t like this pandemic, but I could help. Others benefit from it, which is a cheeky way of getting cash. I wouldn’t spend everything I just got from who knows where and had gotten me a fortune, I would’ve kept some. Why? Because I want to.
