Peter Thiel

I wrote about my YouTube Education here in this previous post.

Peter Thiel is one of my favorite YouTube teachers. He is most famously known as the former Founder & CEO of PayPal, Elon Musk’s former partner (through the merger of PayPal & Elon’s X.com), and of course, as the first VC investor into Facebook.

His talks, interviews, and teachings are full of thoughtful observations, great stories as well as interesting ideas. I find Peter Thiel to be one of the smartest and most successful operators in Silicon Valley.

Here are some of his content that I find to be useful and/or interesting:

Why did Boston and East Coast based VCs miss investing in Facebook? Because they did not want someone younger to be more successful than them.

On secrets, education, MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) And, how & why the current university system is extremely corrupt.

Peter’s thoughts about too much debt, low interest rates, and socialists. And his thoughts on Marx’s theory of “The time for communism comes when interest rates go to zero”.
