Marc Andreessen and Peter Thiel Discuss Innovation and Technology
|Peter Thiel and Marc Andreessen recently conducted a unique exchange on science, business and innovation, or the lack thereof at the Milken Institute's Global Conference 2013.|
Silicon Valley luminaries Peter Thiel and Marc Andreessen are epic entrepreneurs and prominent financiers. Both have something to say about where high-tech is taking the world economy, and what is being left behind.
Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal and an early investor in Facebook, has written in depth about what he considers the stagnation of innovation in fields that others see as emblems of progress: energy, pharmaceuticals, space exploration, nanotech, artificial intelligence and much more.
In fact, Thiel links the austerity gripping the Western world to productivity gains that never happened. Join these acute observers for a unique exchange on science, business and innovation, or the lack thereof.
The session was recorded at the Milken Institute's Global Conference 2013
