Industry Note: The Ponzi Faceconomy, Pt 1838733

MSFT was all over cable companies with big dollars at crazy valuations for small percentage ownership in 1999 and 2000....I see deja vu all over again.

hahaha that is a first time i have heard of hedgetards. I work in the industry and that is very well played. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that facebook used these "hedge funds" to drive up or support the valuations that they were requesting. we shall see.
