Unmasking the Men Behind Zero Hedge, Wall Street’s Renegade Blog

Colin Lokey, also known as “Tyler Durden,” is breaking the first rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. He’s also breaking the second rule of Fight Club. (See the first rule.)

After more than a year writing for the financial website Zero Hedge under the nom de doom of the cult classic’s anarchic hero, Lokey’s going public. In doing so, he’s answering a question that has bedeviled Wall Street since the site sprang up seven years ago: Just who is Tyler Durden, anyway?

    That movie is seventeen years old now.

        He’s forever cast in amber as the crazy guy from Twelve Monkeys.

        Beyond Pluto bat shit crazy on things would be a better description… recent example, the volcano in Mexico near Mexico City, it’s been active for years, but they were hyping it like it was suddenly a problem.

  • Hard Little Machine

    I always thought Zero Hedge was kind of a joke – part The Onion and part gloom and doom. None of their shit is ever very credible or accurate though it plays to a slice of the far left anarchist Gleen Greenwald crypto fascists and their ilk. Fuck them, fuck them all.
