The Truth Behing Zero Hedge's Founder
New York Magazine recently published an interesting article about the founder of the "Zero Hedge" blog. Apparently the blog's creator is a 30-year old who was banned from trading securities for insider trading.
I actually don't mind Zero Hedge. It often has a lot of interesting stuff on there. I particularly liked its work on Goldman's flash trading operations and I agree with its mocking of the mainstream financial media.
However, the site's infatuation with the movie Fight Club is a little too theatrical and over the top for my taste. It almost comes across at times that the folks there have a few screws loose or else they are playing things up in an effort to make as much money as they can by sucking in as many conspiracy theorists as possible. I have nothing against making money, but the whole we're all Tyler Durden garbage is pretty weak.
Anyhow, here's a link to the interesting piece, which angered the folks at Zero Hedge (or one of its fans) to send comments like this to the article's author:
Let’s get some of his work particulars, as well as information about his father. And does he have kids?
Hagan: you’re just another meal in the food chain, and you might find ZH readers are a hungry lot.
welcome to fight club joe.
Joe forgot we are the ones that educate his kids, care for his parents, fix his car and deliever his pizza. hehe
