Silicon Valley’s Peter Thiel may, famously, be the most successful tech entrepreneur-investor ever. A PayPal founder, ground floor at Facebook – you saw him played in the movie, “The Social Network.” He’s in Space X and Founders Fund and Clarium Capital and on and on. But Peter Thiel is not impressed with our technology age. We’re actually in a tech slowdown, he says. This techno-libertarian says the US, the world, has to surge forward, technologically, or flame out. The way we’re headed won’t cut it. This hour On Point: the techno-libertarian, Peter Thiel.
