Movie streaming giant Netflix subscriber growth faces test after $43 billion rally

Netflix Inc. will get a chance next week to validate the more than $40 billion added to its market value since the company’s blowout earnings report in April. The main question hanging over Netflix’s second-quarter results -- much like the first -- is whether the company can add enough streaming subscribers to satisfy investors, whose bullish bets have made the stock the second-best performer in the S&P 500 Index this year.

In the latest ‘National Interest’, ThePrint Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta takes on those who stake claim to be true ‘liberals’, but are, in fact, not. Gupta says these ‘liberals’ lay down a set of rules and don’t tolerate any deviation, thus contradicting the very notion of being a liberal.
