$41 Billion of nothingness
It appears today that investors are prepared to invest in nothingness. If UBER goes titsup, then there is no product left behind which could be used to at least cover a tiny part of the losses, nope all that is left is nothingness.
The lawyers and the traders will be happy as they never lose, they always get their commision regardless of the outcome.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that most of these deals have no other intention other than to make a quick buck, ( lots and lots of quick bucks) at the expense of the investors. When looking for a culprit begin to look at who profits from the crime !!
I would not consider this as capitalism at work but more likely as organised theft.
