Peter Thiel is one of the greatest entrepreneurs and investors of his generation. He co-founded Paypal and Palantir Technologies, made the first outside investment in Facebook, and founded the leading venture capital firm Founders Fund. He’s also the author of Zero to One, one of the best business books of all time.
In this episode, we dive deep on venture capital, scientific stagnation, AI, tech start-ups, and more. Peter shares his compelling theory for why scientific progress has slowed down dramatically in the last decades, and explains how that’s affected start-ups and investing.
Peter also surveys the global economic landscape and we discuss why the US and China have outperformed the rest of the world's economies by such a wide margin.
