Silicon Valley author and visionary Andy Kessler gave a great interview with TechCrunch on the state of the economy and the future of innovation. It’s a great watch – the 5-part series is embedded below (hat tip: TechCrunch TV)
If you’re not familiar with Kessler, you should definitely check him out. He’s a super smart guy who understands both the financial and technology worlds as well as anyone – so his insights on the interplay between both is real interesting to hear.
I have read all of his books, and also had the privilege and good fortune of having breakfast with him in Silicon Valley a couple of years ago. Beyond being a real smart free market/technology guy, he’s also a real cool dude, down to earth, and very irreverent (as you can probably tell from his interviews).
