About an hour ago, I finished my business and finance exam. In this course, the main takeaway was how much to value a firm, profitability of taking on a project, and learning about prices of the firm on the stock market (through EPS, book value, etc.). While taking the exam, a thought occurred to me.


Why exactly am I studying this?


To be exact, why exactly am I studying how to value a firm, and how the valuation of a firm affects it's stock market price and dividends, when the top 0.1% can simply manipulate the value of a firm's stock?

What would be the point of saying that a medical firm on the verge of releasing some cure for cancer and showing great financial accounts is doing extremely well, just for HFs to come and short the shit out of its stock into bankruptcy?

What would be the point of working for a company that is small but having great results but on the other hand, a HF putting artificial buying pressure on a much bigger company with not so great results?

For the rest of my life, I can guarantee the answer to every question I have will be somewhere along the lines of power and greed.

What I have learned in my bachelors degree so far is that without manipulation, things that are happening right now, should be happening differently. And it is sad to see that the majority of my classmates are unaware of this. Studying this degree only seems to actually prove useful in a non-existent society where the ultra wealthy do not take advantage of the systems made for society. This is why we need a market reset. To bring everyone as close to the same level as possible. And to finally make the world aware of how much fuckery has been going on since the start of time.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
