Peter Thiel: We’re in a Bubble and It’s Not the Internet. It’s Higher Education.

I can say that with confidence because it’s about Peter Thiel. And Thiel – the PayPal co-founder, hedge fund manager and venture capitalist – not only has a special talent for making money, he has a special talent for making people furious. Some people are contrarian for the sake of getting headlines or outsmarting the markets. For Thiel, it’s simply how he views the world. Of course a side benefit for the natural contrarian is it frequently leads to things like headlines and money. My Coupons - StudentRate.com. Programming. Academic Video Lectures.
