Finfluencers
 
"Think of memes as inside jokes on a massive scale. For instance, an image of a surprised cartoon character called Pikachu stands in for someone who is shocked but shouldn’t be. Or Kermit the Frog drinking tea with a superior grin while claiming that something is not his business. Users add text to the meme to make it relevant to their own interests.

The hero of “The Big Short” has plenty to say about everything from central banks fueling distortions in credit markets to opportunities in small-cap value stocks and the “bubble” in passive investing. “Like most bubbles, the longer it goes on, the worse the crash will be,” he said. That means a lot, coming from someone who made his fortune and fame betting against CDOs before the crisis.
