This week’s economic headlines are giving many of us whiplash. Stock markets fell at alarming rates amidst fears of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike. Then we found out U.S. GDP grew at its highest rate in decades in 2021, rising 5.7%, a number muddled by inflation. Maybe someone should look into the astrology of this time of year, too, when this time last year, Redditors upended Wall Street by shorting GameStop stock.

Here’s a look at this week’s stories, in case you missed them:
  • Monday, we looked at the courtside celebrities with skin in the game, as in ownership stakes in athletics teams. Find out which teams Justin Timberlake, Will & Jada Smith, and Lebron James are rooting for (and banking on) here.
  • Tuesday, we looked at the forefront of crypto investing in real estate, an unofficial epicenter in rural Wyoming. Find out what decentralized autonomous organizations are up to in the Cowboy State here.
  • What would an anthropologist deduce from the latest funding events in proptech? How is culture influencing real estate? We answered these questions and more in Wednesday’s edition here.
  • The U.S. government isn’t only concerned with nuclear warheads and assassinations; it also has cyber attacks to worry about. What’s the latest in a “zero trust” cyber world? Find out here.
