Carson Block & Freddy Brick of Muddy Waters Research are joined by Dan David of Wolfpack research in this first episode of The Short of it. Together they go back over the past year of short-selling and do an around the horn take on all of the biggest stories. Are we living in a post-truth world? Does fundamental research matter anymore?
