2. That means Groupon is burning even more cash, at a faster rate, as a bigger percentage of revenue, and the rate is itself increasing (2nd derivative AND 1st derivative positive!). Time to fleece the public for funds!

3. Goodbye global alpha

4. Capital? What Capital?

5. If black swan funds are anything like bear funds, they’ll be out of business soon, even if the market does drop, or even if there is volatility.
