Obama’s pipe

I am not sure what is in Barack Obama’s pipe but a statement from White House press secretary Jay Carney makes me wonder:

…the high-tech sector has been “a model, really, for that kind of economic activity that we want to see in other cutting-edge industries in the U.S. where jobs can be created in America and kept in America, and that’s what he wants to talk about.”

The crucial assignment of praise should go to the unrelenting entrepreneurs not to the defunct financial system and arbitrage that on average has produced negative 4.6% returns for Limited Partners and not generated an average positive return for LPs since 1998.

Why do none of the economic geniuses in his administration whisper in his ear that financial cartels by economic principle can never scale, and Venture Capital full of collusion, price-fixing, extreme fragmentation and bottom-heavy diversification has turned just as subprime as real-estate?

I am very worried who Barack surrounds himself with in his attempts to fix our economic situation. Would love to set Barack Obama straight on this subject. I’ll remind him of Startup America then too.


About Georges van Hoegaerden

After my ideas had raised $14M and returned over $100M to investors in Silicon Valley I could not help but detect a systemic flaw in the way we detect, build, fund and support systems of innovation. On an entrepreneurial quest to root-cause I evolved my focus from the economics of innovation to the innovation of economics, and ended up completely rewriting the playbook of economics that must guide us all. I named my invention Renewable Economics™.
