The Future of Innovation with Peter Thiel

by robertrosenkranz on April 9, 2015

Peter Thiel is one of our more interesting public intellectuals, who is often willing to take stances that challenge the conventional wisdom.

“Too many kids go to college” he argued in an Intelligence Squared U.S. debate (pictured above). There, he made the point that less able students in second tier schools might be better off with vocational training (the model successfully followed in Germany and Switzerland), and that the most able students at top schools might be pushed to follow conformist career paths rather than express their entrepreneurial creativity.
