It's clear that the latest Wall Street vs. Main Street tension is representative of everything happening in America today.

As you know, our Questions of the Week typically center around issues of importance to Cuban Americans, Puerto Rico, and the general Latinx community. So, this week’s Question of the Week could feel like a stretch. But the Wall Street vs. Main Street conversation takes place everywhere, in all communities.

And we are truly curious about our audience’s take on the issue.

GameStop, which makes most of its money selling video games in stores across America, saw its stock price rise up to 1,700% last week, backed by fans who believe it was unfairly undervalued by large investors who had bet billions that its stock would fall. Individual investors purchased the retailer’s stock en masse, pushing the stock price up and forcing the large investors to spend billions of dollars to cover their losses. GameStop’s meteoric rise and the manipulation of the market is indicative of inequality in America, says an opinion piece in The Washington Post.

For this week’s Question of the Week we want to know what you think. Who’s the blame? Or, better yet, who’s side are you on? All responses are anonymous.

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.
