The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible

Greed Lashes Back

As I was watching this video about the Facebook IPO I found no sympathy for anyone … from Facebook, NASDAQ to the individual investor. Anyone who was in on the Facebook IPO was there to take make money – to ultimately take something away from the table (in a game which requires that you first put something on it). It’s the first time I’ve heard Mark Zuckerberg speak, if only for a few seconds … and … let me just say this … NO ONE who partook in this financial adventure was there to make the world more open and connected. EVERYONE was there to make a profit. When you get such a massive influx of misdirection … it practically needs to fail. Then is it only natural that (a) the strongest players (smart money) have setup the game in such a way that they will win no matter what and (b) everyone else is left scrambling … and looking for someone else to blame.
