Larry Summers and Peter Thiel debate higher education "bubble"
Ottway Ducard stashed this in education
"You can't be provocative without being badly wrong," -- Larry Summers.
"Things take longer to take than you thought they would, and then they happen faster than you thought they would." -- Larry Summers
"There's a lot more than teaching students that happens at universities." -- Larry Summers.
The moderator is rather aggressive, interesting.
Peter Thiel looks and speaks rather similar to Mark Zuckberg. If I was not watching this video, I'd think Zuck was speaking.
"A harvard degree will be worth more not less in the future." -- Peter Thiel.
They both seem so sure of themselves.
I wonder where that confidence comes from.
Zuck/Thiel or Thiel/Summers?
Thiel and Summers.
Zuck seems less confident.
Their confidence comes from being mostly viewed as successful men by the outside world; success begets success, after all -- and it definitely begets confidence.
Thiel is seen as a soothsayer after *winning* with PayPal and his early investment in Facebook; Summers of course believes he has credibility from being a former Harvard president and the like.
