How Reddit almost CRASHED the Economy with a meme.

Datum objavljivanja: 24. Vel 2021.
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.

  • also, no one coordinated, we just happened to like the stock at the same time, and I like how you talk about it like it's the past, we're still in it, with more share than ever lmao

  • the economy didn't crash *yet*

  • Meanwhile twitter is complaining about everything

  • redditor moment

  • 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.

    • That's her telegram username for those who want to contact her

    • @Rosslyn_investment

    • How can one get through to Mrs Rosslyn Howard? because it seems like she's a reputable business woman

    • Mrs Rosslyn really changed my life,with my investment of $1000 I'm now able to attend to the basic needs of my family because of the high profits I get from investing Bitcoin with her, I'll really recommend her for beginners

    • Yes she is, I was having doubts at first until I got my first payout I think she's the best broker in the world I started investing with her during the pandemic I'm now on my way to financial freedom

  • This video alone was helping me understand shares, stocks, and values. Thank you and I understood everything lol

  • Hedge funds will go bankrupt. Bankrupcy will go bankrupt

  • I’d prefer if gamestop died over a few rich guys getting mildly inconvenienced

  • Robinhood has betrayed the people for the hedge fund overlords benefit.

  • Gamestonk

  • 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

  • While watching this , I saw an ad about stock marketing 👏🏻👁👄👁

  • Stonks

  • sorry guys i gotta break the economy my names evergreen by the way (this is a joke)

  • Esti roman andrei? Lool nu stiam desi chiar ma gândeam ca numele tau e românesc so...

  • 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.

  • Don't worry, the economy is good'nt.

  • God that Elon musk face is cursed

  • Ik I'm late but gamestop was where I always wanted to go, so many 3ds games. I no longer have my 3ds but that was fun.

  • I'm getting Etoro ads on the vid, how ironic

  • Oh I remember the day I was in gamestop searching gamestop up to look for something they didn't have in there store and seeing a huge spike in money and I said "Huh neat, that's weird."

  • I just got an add for robinhood while watching this

  • Stonks

  • 5:45 Even tho i don’t live int the USA I know some stuff about GameStop being an simple Game Store were you can get a ton of Games,Consoles,maybe an gaming laptop, accessories for PCs and Merchandise of the Game Btw I’m Russian and never knew anything about that GameStop shop

  • You ain't seen nothing yet. The short squeeze hasn't happen yet. Wait for it.

  • man ai sis ca esti roman pai respect nam ce zice

  • That wasn’t a short squeeze my friend this was a gammer squeeze. We are just warmed up, we won’t sell till we are all millionaires down to the last ape

  • The fact that the reddetors most likely used the money on Fortnite XD

  • My biggest flex is I was apart of this

  • west jett anyone?

  • As the video ended, I got an ad from the Robin hood app.

  • Wait how is robin hood the bad guy? They tried to save the economy by limiting the damage done to major hedge funds whilst Reddit is supposed to be good because they almost crashed the economy and giving huge amounts of money to a company.

  • ECONOMY FELL POOOOOG

  • Seal of Approval.

  • AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!

  • everyone's talking about how "reddit's trash, and it's filled with toxic people" well....... yes, there are toxic subreddits, but cultured men don't visit them 95% of subreddits are actually wholesome/funny/helpful

  • 2:33 love the Pringles logo and monopoly man

  • True (and u/deepfuckinvalue not u/senior hedgehog)

  • 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.

  • Apes together strong
