BU Questrom Master Lecturer Mark Williams and Kelli Questrom Associate Professor in Management Gordon Burtch (July 2021) sat down to discuss the story that has captivated the financial world over the past two weeks: the social media-driven explosion of video game retailer GameStop’s stock price. Bringing complementary perspectives from the worlds of risk management, social media, finance, and crowdfunding, Mark and Gordon broke down exactly what happened, the implications it has for short-selling and retail investors, and long-term policy implications for government and regulators.
