    • Book Review: Zero To One by Peter Thiel
      A few weeks ago, for work related reasons, I had to bone up on Venture Capital.

What has Krugthulu been up to lately?

He’s been pimping his book, End This Depression Now!.  He’s been getting a lot of publicity lately and has been on a book tour in Europe and here.  I found this youtube video of Paul giving a short presentation on his book and doing a Q&A in Cambridge, MA.  For an economist, he’s very entertaining and funny.  I like his upbeat optimism.

Here’s hoping his book is wildly successful and that the working class (that would be all of us not living on our investments, O Best Beloved) encounter him in their travels across the media spectrum.  I fear he is a tiny voice in the wilderness unless he hits #1 on Amazon.

Disclaimer: You don’t need to order it from Amazon.  You can buy it at Barnes and Noble.  I saw it there yesterday.  You can probably get it at the Princeton Book Store, if you’re so inclined.  Or iTunes.  Whatever frosts your crockies.  I only mention Amazon because their top ranked booklist tends to get a lot of attention and maybe some economically and politically naive person might stumble on it.  Let’s not make this a diatribe about how evil Amazon is as a corporation or, you know, foolish consistencies, hobgoblins and all that.
