Human Supremacy In Perspective

Humanity is not at the top of the food-chain, forcing us to reconsider how we must point the arrows of human development into comprehending and adapting to how nature works and rules us. Systematically.

Humanity’s One-Hundred-Year-Old Challenge

To save humanity from early extinction, we must realign the vectors of human expansion to the way nature evolves and improve human adaptability to combat the decline of available energy induced by nature’s entropy.

The Vile Maxim Of Sustainability

A religion promulgating sustainability violates nature's rule and leads to the "all for me and nothing for anyone else" we must eradicate to improve humanity.

Foundational Depravity

I listened to today's podcast from the World Economic Forum called The Great Reset: Financing a Sustainable Recovery. For a real reset, guaranteed to improve humanity, I suggest you watch my recent interview instead.

Free Freedom

Freedom itself must be freed from its current narrow definition and outright misplaced control, if we want the bravery of its pursuit to be responsible for the invention of a much brighter future.

Al Gore’s Allegory Of A Sustainable Climate

Al Gore preaches the confounding of consequence and cause of sustainability, nonexistent anywhere in our universe. Let's set him straight to not induce another infinitely expanding tautology.

Out With The Lies

We, humans, tell ourselves some grandiose lies and then act surprised when things do not quite work out as advertised. We must reinvent the systems holding us hostage.

Nature Controls Us

We must induce a new humanitarian compass to better adapt to nature’s entropy.

How Can Facebook Be Regulated And Enforced?

A smart Facebook employs a different approach, one that avoids it being slapped with malformed regulation or outright rejection.

Is 16 GB of RAM (in your computer) overkill?

No. The more memory the better, as I explain developing C++ apps on Unix a long time ago.

Normalizations For Dummies

The quest to discover the highest normalization of nature's truth dramatically improves human adaptability to nature's entropy, and thus prolongs human life on earth.

Relativity For Dummies

Relativity is easy to understand. So, let me explain its most rudimentary form determining the evolution of (almost) everything in the universe, as discovered by Albert Einstein one-hundred years ago.

Entropy For Dummies

Entropy is the irreversible process subjected to the evolution of all objects, animate and inanimate, in our universe. A process perhaps best visualized by the explosion of fireworks.

Former Fed Chief Found Economists “Useless”

The opportunity to reinvent economics is wide-open if the people associated can detach themselves from an outdated normalization of truth.

For Our Economy To Succeed, Classical Economics Must Die

Classical economics is a religion stuck in the perpetuity of undesirable consequences, void of any connection to cause.

Why Democracies Fail Or Succeed

A democracy must be subjugated to evolutionary first-principles to improve humanity.

The Musical Chairs Of Financial Asset Management

Today's asset allocation in finance resembles the musical-chair game. Before the music stops you better have your eye on a seat.

Setting A New Goal In Venture

If we as investors do not change our investor tactics and produce real socioeconomic value, it is inevitable that venture capital will descent even further into micro-PE, and suck the risk and returns out of performance.

Why 99.4% Of Venture Capital Firms Fail

The vast majority of venture capital firms fail to produce consistent venture style returns to their limited partners. Here is why.

How Sub-Prime VC Stings Twice

Venture capital has turned subprime. Do not get caught in its web of lies.

Apple’s Stance On Encryption Is An Attack On Freedom

Apple's stance on encryption violates a modern relativity theory of freedom by which government can work to prevent present dangers and stave-off the future systemic fallacies of an untenable absolutism of freedom.

Why I Don’t Follow Anyone (On Twitter)

My answer is that Twitter suffers from the barking-dog syndrome. Twitter should have developed a dynamic meritocracy by which it explores the ever expanding fringe of human interests, not stimulate the mediocrity of spiraling collusion of thought.

Why Isn’t There Equality In Many Countries?

Equality is not a recipe for fairness. Inequality is.

Silly Venture, Surfing The Waves

The existing improprieties in venture capital only exist because we have deployed a piecemeal market model, reminiscent of the Wild West. We can cure its systemic disease, by implementing operating principles to enforce the "capture" of outliers.

Not Everyone Can Be An Entrepreneur, But An Entrepreneur Can Come From Anywhere.

To find an outlier through a commoditized investment thesis is a moronic endeavor.

To Lead Or Not To

We need to elevate the practice of leadership to show the world who we really are.

Big Tech Versus Big Politics

Structural solutions and shortcuts are available to resolve our nation's impasse with two-faced technology companies. Cures I have been prescribing for twelve years. It is never too late to get real.

A New Norm Comes From The Top

Katy Perry for President, was my first thought when I heard the celebrity singer in an interview with Howard Stern demand a reprioritization of life around the principles of nature. Let me explain how. Go, Katy! You already look much better than Kanye West!

Hotel CalPERS

CalPERS' problems are not the players but its investment game. Macro over micro. Cause over consequence.

On Transparency In Finance

Transparency is a rule, a consequence, not the goal of finance. A humanitarian goal of finance in dire need of instilling on its anointed operators.

Why ESG Is A Dangerous Religion

Why is it, that a thesis of finance eleven times the size of production does not get vetted and scrutinized?

Facebook, L’Enfant Terrible

Facebook is like an infant with parents strung out on drugs, the child sadly left to its own devices. Courtesy of freedom detached from paradoxical rules, the epitome of unfreedom. I blame the child's parents, mostly, as in all cases where the parents are not keeping a watchful eye over the children they proclaim to love so much. Oh, how I have seen this scenario unfold before.

A Bose NC700 Redemption Song

Credit where credit is due from a new firmware update breathing new life into Bose's over-the-ear active noise-canceling headphones released last year.

Why Technology Cannot Arbitrate Or Build Systems Of Arbitrage

A simple, yet prime, example of why technology is bad for humanity.

That was the most prominent question every asset manager, venture capitalist, European Parliament member and taxi driver asked me during my visit to London last week.

KPCB Mea Culpa

Top-tier Silicon Valley venture firm Kleiner-Perkins-Caufield-Byers admitted poor performance, no surprise from what I witnessed from the writing on their walls.

Cheap Divisive People

I would not trust any politician who treats the problems with the U.S. Postal Service using skin-deep easy-peasy talking points. Reaffirming the need for a litmus test for politicians once again.

Sean Penn Is A Good Man

I like Sean Penn for his stance on the meaning of life, his acting, and the work he is doing to pick-up the slack on pandemic relief. Authentic curiosity and empathy for the human condition driving his efforts. Hats off.

Dauphin Summers

Economists, like Larry Summers, have a tendency to make shit up after a threat appeared unexpectedly in their rear-view mirror, for their modus-operandi is to deploy an extrapolation of hindsight sold as foresight to break the norm. Be forewarned, as an expert on ill-conceived consequences is merely a rebel without a cause.

Four Things To Not Change The World

Out come the charlatans of change vying to change the world. Do not be fooled by the old resold as new.

Venture Pitch Deck Review

A review of a VC pitch deck used to raise money from an LP reveals how the performance problems in the venture sector are derived from grandfathered risk mismanagement.

Accelerating Infinite Regression In Asset Management

As I explain in The Evolution of Evolution, when humanity merely evolves downstream, from an existing normalization of truth, get ready for infinite regression. That is my stern warning to Dutch funds, APG and PGGM, promoting an AI-driven investment platform for asset-owners.

Family Offices Are Tired Of Conferences – Something Else Is Needed

Something else is needed indeed, a unique investment thesis that makes your arbitrage as different as the families you represent. Dare to be different, or go home.

Friend Or Foe Of Private Equity

Merely to question PE performance is considered heresy, a charge that should be reversed to put a religion of finance on notice to change immediately and fundamentally. We have come to the rescue.

I Told You So: India Bans 59 Apps

I warned technology companies five years ago. The days are numbered thinking you can sell the equivalent of sugar-water to the world and expect to get away with spawning yet another mind-numbing addiction that accelerates an anthropogenic cascade.

Apple Makes Me Yawn

Nothing in this announcement demonstrates how Apple improves the human condition, the gist of the announcement being "what took you so long?"

Breaking News: Apple’s Tim Cook Leaving To Head Up Boar’s Head

Since the possibility of news is big business, I hereby launch my own.

On Unicorns

Sometimes words fall short, and an image does the job.

Why Is Capitalism Supposedly Failing?

Any(!) system not subjugated to a meritocracy from freedom is bound to fail.

I suggest you do not praise to glory all the good men doing absolutely nothing to preserve the kind of freedom to each his own.

Which Is Better: Capitalism Or Government Intervention?

This question exhibits a grave misunderstanding of the causal principles of human excellence. And why we must define and implement a new operating-system for humanity.

Why Isn’t A Meritocracy Better Than A Democracy?

Either not subjugated to our evolutionary objectives is merely a rebel without a cause.

Has Barack Obama Benefited The Economy In The Long-Run?

Not really. Beyond keeping us afloat, Barack has not fundamentally improved human capacity and ingenuity, held hostage by stubborn principles and misguided governance set before him in dogmatic scripture.

What Is The Difference Between Private Equity And Venture Capital?

As different as foresight and hindsight are. Same asset-management bucket, completely different risk profiles, and then some.

What Are Some Lies VCs And Angel Investors Tell Themselves?

The foremost lie yields the systematic dumbing-down of the very meaning and socioeconomic impact of innovation.

If Any, What Alternative Systems Do Anti-Capitalists Defend?

Capitalism is called a system with the ease by which a low-pressure atmosphere is considered a system.

What Are The Most Common Mistakes Made By Venture Capitalists?

The most common mistake of venture capital is it deploys micro-private equity subprime risk to chase the returns of prime. An improbable outcome.

Will Bitcoin Ever Go Mainstream?

It better not. For the collusion on a single currency is erosive to the diversity, plurality and sovereignty of mankind. And then some.

Can Limited Partners See The Pipeline Of VC Funds And Rejected Projects?

No, not generally. But the repeatable effectiveness of venture is determined by a more causal factor.

Why Innovate?

This seemingly innocuous question leads to some interesting discoveries.

As An Angel Investor Or VC, Do You Prefer A Founder Saying He Has A Plan B If His Startup Fails Or That He...

I do not want to hear about your plan B, but you better make sure there is no better plan A.

Why Does Facebook Believe A Monoculture Fed By Advertising Is Good For The World?

The question I posed to Facebook in a live session. Still no reply.

Is Tesla Losing Its Grounds With Falling Demands And Needs For A Big Capital?

Oh please. Take your money and invest it where you believe a hedge of a hedge matches your appetite for risk.

The Double Entendre of Silicon Valley Tourism

The real contributors to evolution are amongst the recalcitrant tourists, the false negatives, the dissidents, the antagonist outliers of the subpriming of innovation arbitrage.

I Have A Dream…

It's time to judge a technology not by the country it comes from but the content of its innovation. The american dream is waiting for you.

Letters To A Young Contrarian: Calling All Entrepreneurs To Read This Book

The first book I have read in over 30 years you should too.

The Problem With Social

Social networks must change if they want to survive and become a driving force for good. And all it takes is the removal of social from socialism.

The pageantry of positivity is rampant in the technology startup space, and I am not falling for its many wannabes.
