CEO Of Social Capital Tells Where He'd Put All Of His Money If He Had To Make One Investment

Quora | Posted 01.19.2017 | Home

I would buy AMZN. I think Amazon is the most interesting company right now and represents the surest path to a $5T (15-20x from current levels) market cap within 50 years. The reason I think this has nothing to do with e-commerce, although e-commerce is their way of dogfooding the real reason: AWS.

The presidency is not a corporate CEOship where authority is checked only by the board and internal political foes. However this all plays out, I admire Carly for her tenacity; as she has demonstrated great balls. We just have to collectively decide if they belong in the White House.

There Is No Santa Claus and Bill Clinton Was Not an Economic Savior

Dean Baker | Posted 02.24.2013 | Home
Dean Baker

The truth is often painful but nonetheless it is important that we live in the real world. Just as little kids have to come to grips with the fact that there is no Santa Claus, it is necessary for millions of liberals, including many who think of themselves as highly knowledgeable about economic matters, to realize that President Clinton's policies sent the economy seriously off course. In Washington it is common to tout the budget surpluses of the Clinton years as some momentous achievement, as though the point of economic policy is to run budget surpluses. Of course the point of economic policy is to produce an economy that improves the lives of the people in a sustainable way. Clinton badly flunked this test.

Is it really preposterous that investors would assign a company that is defining a whole new category of communication as being worth one-half of Google and one-seventh of Apple? Of course not. There is not a bubble in Facebook shares, there is a bubble in calling bubbles.
