Everywhere, we see deals are being made, between the mammothian corporations and the small new ‘proliferated’ internet-based start-up businesses, all looking for that big-league chance for the big-pay. This is the new age of the ‘dotcom’, rise before the fall.
Aol buys Huffington Post (Why?), Microsoft-Skype (Why?), Yahoo resells Alibaba (Right On!), small companies around the ‘silicone valley’ (not fake boobs, but Californian own new goldrush valley), facebook (billions, why?), and so forth to come. All these purchases, buys-and-sells have no real rational explanation to outsiders, but to insiders they ‘play the markets’ create ‘overnight’ wealth, dictate events and so forth. The Economist has a good article can be located at http://www.economist.com/node/18680048 on more detail and others can be found through archives and searches.
The point of this article is this, THE BIG-BOOM AT THE PRESENT AROUND THE NEW AGE OF DOTCOM BUSINESS, WILL END SOON WITH ANOTHER MASSIVE CRUSH, WITH GLOBAL SEISMIC EFFECTS.
This is it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Internet market is the single most unstable and unsound investment in existence, only those ‘playing the market’ wins in shorter terms with catastrophic long term consequences for the rest. Anything one can do there, another can replicate in a shorter term, and with the moves buy giants corporations of acquisitions and so forth, ‘virtual consumers’ change loyalty quickly to escape these most despised creatures on the market. There is no sustainable competitive advantage, no economies of scale opportunities, no barriers to entry, no competitive resources or all that crap from the economics and business lingua. the opportunity cost is plenty, the talent is abundance, and all one needs is close-knit friends with simple knowledge and a computer, and voila, you have the next big thing in the virtual market.
