So, normal people can invest (waste ?) their lifetime savings to finance projects that junk-bonders, bankers and government officers won’t waste (invest ?) investors’, customers’ or taxpayers’ money in. It’s just like stock-exchange, but for smaller money.
So, is crowd funding another Wolf of Wall Street, or more stupid than any other way to waste one’s money buying useless, made in Asia, gadgets, invest one’s money in hopeless businesses, or spend the family’s savings in mortgaged housing before the next financial big one ?
Well, who knows … it’s just crowdfunding, stupid !

The French consider that coming back from their summer holiday means being back at work (where most spend 35 hours per week, with 5 or 6 weeks holiday and RTT). This may explain something about their
competitiveness ; “croissance” ; Frenchonomics.
Renaud Favier, August 21st, 2012.
Some additional e-reading may be needed about Frenchonomics and other issues. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on TV and others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French
learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times).
Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).
