I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

That’s just part of it. They are also supposed to give the common man (by man I mean people, but just trying to speak a little poetically here) an equal opportunity to take part in one of the single greatest wealth creators in world history–our public capital markets. If more and more young growing companies are tapping into private capital markets, then more and more of the outstanding wealth creation opportunities are going to an elite group of the already super-wealthy. This is not good.

For a true son of Scotland, empiricism is ALWAYS the answer.

Hume lives!

Still, it increases the float and gives them more cash to play with.

The primary role of the stock market is to compensate the people who create and grow the companies. If you couldn’t take a successful company public, then VC would be more reluctant to invest their capital in the first place.

One caveat, however, at least one massive international study conducted by Ross Levine about 10 years ago concluded that retained earnings (more than stock exchanges or bank-centric capital marketts) generate economic growth. It ain’t just an Apple or Google thing. What they taught us in business school regarding the crucial importance of stock markets in capitalizing business may have been slightly exagerated for some time now.

Apple raises money in the market pretty much every quarter, last quarter: $208 mln, same quarter last year: $374 mln

So what does it mean then, on their annual reports, when they list “Proceeds from issuance of common stock” under cash flow?
