The Finance 2.0 Manifesto - Umair Haque

Should you tax bankers’ bonuses, or limit their pay? Should you nationalize banks, or let public-private partnerships bid for bad assets? Do markets need morals — or just better regulation? The answer is: all may be necessary, but none are sufficient. Where are all the customers’ yachts? Bankers have got society, communities, and depositors by the throat. Banks don’t need to be bailed out of bad debt. Finance 1.0 has the same relationship with society as Godzilla does with cities. Finance 1.0 isn’t fit for economics 2.0. Finance 1.0 is built on a long-obsolete set of organizing principles. Today’s bankers, investors, and traders will never build a better finance.

Here at Bundle, we believe that people deserve the truth about the places where we spend our money every day. Whether it's a restaurant, department store, or dry cleaner, Bundle helps you find out how good a place is before you go there. We believe that businesses should be rated by real data -- not just by people's subjective opinions. We use anonymous, aggregated spending data to rate businesses based on factors such as how often people go back, how many people go there and how much people actually spend. Using this data, we can learn a lot about whether a place is good, and further, whether a place is good for you. We believe this method of rating (combined with people's subjective opinions) allows us to make smarter decisions in the following ways: Bundle ratings remove bias and false reviews because they're based on actual spending information. We hope you enjoy using Bundle!
