After just reading an article on a company called "Tibra", the long time geek in me thought cool, then i found myself thinking what waste of talent and resources on something that doesn't really do anything.
They have all the try hard geeky coolness of a technological startup, with none of the product.
The world obviously needs "investors" but other than providing market liquidity do traders provide the economy and society with anything useful for their efforts? Are they a sap on society?
How as a society can we funnel the energy of these sort of companies into solving the worlds real problems?
