Gamestop Squeeze: Hedge Funds at Fault?
Feb 23, 2021 Episode 16

Were hedge funds at fault for the Gamestop short squeeze? It’s February 2021, and Americans are divided. My guest today is Joel Block, a 25 year veteran of the venture capital, private equity, and hedge fund worlds who addresses audiences from Silicon Valley venture firms to Wall Street bankers on matters of capital formation. In 2012, Joel formed the Bullseye Capital Fund, a real estate hedge fund. In this episode we discuss the role of hedge funds, the sincerity of the Robinhood CEO’s response, whether Reddit Wall Street Bets is guilty of market manipulation, if the stock market is an uneven playing field, and more. Whether you agree or disagree with today’s guest, I invite you to join with an open mind as we work to heal the division on the Gamestop short squeeze.
