If you’ve followed this blog, you’ll know that the FAAGs are sucking up all the money and it is going to fewer and fewer people. This is bad for society especially in light of the fact that retail is the number one private employer in America, and automation will take half those jobs away within 10 years.

CRISPR Stocks Burnt Like Toast!

You may remember I posted a link saying that CRISPER CAS9 caused hundreds of unintended gene mutations. The news caused the stock price of major gene editing companies to tank. Here’s my first take. Much like politicians, studies are a dime a dozen. Give a scientist money, and he’ll “prove” whatever you want. So let’s say you missed out on the ground-floor opportunity of buying into these gene editing companies when their stock price was low. What do you do? You sponsor a study to scare the public, and then bam!, you buy the stock when prices tumble.

Here’s my second take. The new study detailing the unexpected mutations are correct, and the vested interests are hitting back hard trying to discredit it. Verifying the study will take time and provide gene-editing companies to make counter claims. Here’s the link on the latest.
