Who is Zero Hedge, and why should we care? - 2011-08-19
So just who is Tyler Durden of zerohedge.com, and why is anyone (including the Globe and Mail's Streetwise blog) paying any attention to what he wrote about Canadian banks?
That's one of the big questions in the fast-growing comment queue in a Streetwise post highlighting Zero Hedge's decidedly bearish take on Canadian banks.
(That link is here. ) The answer is because despite the fact that Mr. Durden is an anonymous blogger with a nom de plume cribbed from a Brad Pitt movie, what gets written is fairly widely followed. Some big money managers follow the site, and periodically forward me posts.
