    Many businesses saw Covid lockdowns cause a huge surge in sales and like idiots they extended the line on the graph for another 5 years. Now that people are going outside again they are scratching their heads at the downturn in sales. Top Men

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    This is not about NFTs but if you fall for a phishing scam you were not hacked. No security in the world can save you if you give your keys to the thief.

    It was just an intro macroeconomics class. When the professor of the class wrote an equation on the board and then graphed it he began talking about the slope at various points. I raised my hand and asked him why not just use the derivative of the equation. When the other students started to...

    Well sure, it works both ways. Investors can think a company has intrinsic value were there is none and investors can pass on companies that they think have no intrinsic value that become big successes.

    I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics and a graduate degree in engineering but I took a class in economics. I have a low opinion of economists for a wide range of reasons that is way off topic. Milton Friedman is a Nobel prize winner, what do you think of him? BTW Not all expertise is...

    It was this post that I had trouble with LukeTbk said: You think that the ability for a company to get investors via something that is like a stock market has no value ? If Apple tank tomorrow just because every owner outside me sells their stock, why should I care outside, gaining the...

    Sigh, I never said the stock market has no value, stop claiming that I did. But you seem unwilling to admit that there is amazing wrong with it. That companies can be over valued, that their stock market value can go to zero, that those companies have no intrinsic value, and because of that...

    AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT ‘RDNA 2 Refresh’ Graphics Cards Rumored For Q2 2022: Navi 21 & 22 GPUs With 18 Gbps Memory

    There is a good way to determine how relevant RT is now, hold a survey that asks people buying a new GPU how important RT was in their decision. I'm sure that study has been done.

    You want to focus on all the good things that the stock market does and none of the bad. By no means has the past 200 years been angelic but things have gotten much worse in the modern age do to technology. https://www.investopedia.com/articles/basics/12/art-of-speculation.asp I think I am...

    My point is that the stock market is extremely flawed. What once was used as a means to finance a new or a growing company has now become a plaything. The stock market as designed was an extremely useful tool. However, it is now filled with speculators (i.e. gamblers) that ruined the...

    I think NFTs are stupid but there IS a way to justify them. The art market is just as phony but the notion that I can prove that I own the original is the same. Just as you can sue and prosecute people that deal in forged art people will sue over NFT ownership. Here is legal analysis on that...
