I'm a stock market idiot. I've invested a bit here and there, but really, I don't understand it at all. So, I'm asking those of you who actually know what the difference is between a bull market and a bear market to speculate on what would happen if Google's stock crashed.
It seems inevitable to me. Of course, since I'm a stock market idiot, that probably doesn't mean much, but just using age-old wisdom (and as I age, I like to pretend I get wiser), it's similar to the old "If it's too good to be true..." advice. To me, it's like a balloon that keeps getting more and more air blown into it, and it seems as though the rubber will stretch forever...but it doesn't. Eventually, it pops, and all the air is dispersed.
I bring this up because I read a forum thread today, in which one of Google's staunchest evangelists has become disheartened with them. Frankly, I never thought I'd see the day that he would say one single bad word against them. It felt like hearing Billy Graham tell us he was switching sides.
So, what do you think would happen if Google's stock crashed? What kind of ripples would that send out? How much impact would that have in the larger scheme of things? Your thoughts?
