Bono finds what he’s looking for: cash!

Alternate headlines:
I can’t believe the news today: I’m rich!
Two investments beat as one!
I can invest with or without you!
This is not a rebel song, this is my investment!
Well, the God I believe in ain’t short of cash, mister. NOR AM I.
And he’s peeling off those dollar bills / Slapping them down / One hundred, two hundred / 975 MILLION!

Wearing sunglasses at all hours of the day could be the key to major financial success. That logic holds true, if you’re Bono, whose investment firm, Elevation Partners, holds private shares of Facebook now valued at $975 million dollars. The shares were purchased in 2009 for $210 million (aka two platinum records), which gives the one-named wonder a tidy profit of about $800 million. A beautiful day for Bono’s bank account.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
