Is it possible to become fabulously wealthy without doing productive work?
The cheerleaders and frat boys of the ZNGA board say yes. Mr. Pinus has proven it is indeed possible. A few on this board might actually hold real jobs, but many are squandering their employer's time, salivating on the screen over the latest one penny move of the bull dog. In the final analysis, it will only be Mr. P. and his tribal pals who walk away with wealth. The vast majority have already suffered and will continue to suffer financial ruin. It has to do with hard numbers, value, and actual product, all now highly dated concepts in this casino. Furthermore, the great intangible remains Karma Yoga, which is really a spiritual consideration, that you reap that which you sow. Yes, the longs will come to know the infamous KY factor. Will it hurt so good?
I myself actually do productive work here. I do it for a few coins from the short syndicate, but moreover,in my altruistic ways, I provide a service to humanity. The truth shall be revealed. True price discovery only occurs over the long haul. Everything else is background music. And the band plays on.
