Highlights and links
The Wise Guy spent the week in Vegas – did he lose more than a few other well documented losses this week? Who was the biggest loser of them all?
Links to stuff we spoke about:-
- The position of the London Stock Market made the headlines in multiple places
- Warren Buffet picks a winner again – Nubank posts record revenues and the addition of youth accounts is a great move
- Yes – the “Meg-a-verse” is not a joke (but might be in the future)
- Extinction Rebellion certainly drew attention to the fossil fuel debate this week with co-ordinated protests
- Chris Skinner may or may not be an unofficial ambassador – but his book is excellent and you should buy it!
- Is B2B Fintech having their moment in the sun right now? Fintech investment in general is still good though
- Was Elon Musk the biggest loser of the week? (Yes, we will continue to mention Musk until somebody sponsors us NOT to mention him – get in touch PLEASE so we can stop giving him airtime!!)
- I think we all agree it was this guy that claimed the biggest loser prize this week though – the FTX events demonstrate a clear lack of ethics, governance, principles …… the list goes on (and some personal dirty laundry comes out at the same time)
- This was a close contender for biggest loser – who hides their crypto in a popcorn tin?
- And is everyone bored of the Apes yet?
- But the second place loser goes to the former PayPal CEO – who shut down his latest startup a only few weeks after launching it!
Chris claims he was on fire this week and showed us the t-shirt to prove it – although his confession regarding his performance at the tables in Vegas left us wondering just who the biggest loser of the week really was 🤪
The team all scour multiple sources each week looking for the biggest and most controversial stories, along with those that simply make you go WTF?????
