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:

On short selling, Tesla and Gamestop:
Most heavily shorted stocks in January of 2021:

Hedge funds losing billions of dollars:

    This is a very good explanatory video of the GameStop situation,but is tremendously charged of the message that rich people is bad and poor people is good, like minute 3:25 complaining about the billionaires but typically the people that sends this messages want to be this billionaires 😇 Is like the communist leader that is soooooo very rich

    In Indian stock markets , we have three types of People - The Bull Gang , The Bear Gang and the The Whale Gang. In the case of American Stock Market, these people actually whooped the arses of 🐳 Gangs who actually siphones a lot of money from manipulation and the memesters have acted as the Millenial Gang who just made lot of money through countering the big hedge fund groups manipulation . In conclusion , what the Reddit people did was a stimulus for your Economy . Capitalism talks . Money talks . That's the reality . Face it, Socialist Cry babies !

    The one major thing with a short is that you have to pay interest and security on it so as the stock price jumps the interest gose though the roof and well now it becomes eather try and wait it out or buy it back at a insane rate and doing that just pushes the price higher

    Forex and cryptocurrency is the order of the day in the modern world so rather than storing it, venture into investments that could bolster your financial status. But before going into it you would need the formal supervision of a very professional and trustworthy broker, I would advice you work with Mrs Rosslyn Howard.

    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.
