Thiel himself starts talking, at 7 minutes 45 seconds.

Thiel spiel
Brian Micklethwait (London) · Economics, Business & Globalization · North American affairs · Opinions on liberty
http://www.samizdata.net/2015/02/thiel-spiel/?

Many libertarians think that the answer to meetings like those Davos and Bilderberg Group get-togethers of the rich and powerful is to complain about them until they stop. This is ridiculous and pointless. Quite aside from the absurdity of libertarians objecting to people freely consorting with one another, how on earth are they going to stop the richest and most powerful people on the planet from meeting up and talking to each other from time to time?

My attitude has always been, not that such gatherings are automatically evil, but that we need our people to be right there in among them, and to make them less evil. People like Peter Thiel, who strikes me as being one of the smartest and most interesting people on the planet. The usual come-back about allegedly smart people goes: “If you’re so smart, why ain’t you rich?” Peter Thiel has some very good answers to that line of attack. Around 2.2 billion answers, according to Forbes magazine. This short Forbes profile describes Thiel as being “ideological to the point of eccentricity”, his particular eccentricity being that he is a libertarian. I don’t know if Peter Thiel spends any of his time bending the ears of fellow plutocrats and billionaires at gatherings like those alluded to above, but if he does, good.

And, if he does, maybe this excellent video performance provides clues about the kinds of things he says. (You might want to skip the rather numerous thankyous to other people at the start from the Independent Institute’s David Theroux, and go straight to where Thiel himself starts talking, at 7 minutes 45 seconds.)

I have ordered a copy of Thiel’s latest book, and not just because I want to read it, although I definitely do. I think of a book order as being like voting for an idea that I like the sound of, or in this case an author that I like the sound of.

Thiel’s talk was an unimpressive yawner. Organizational consultants such as Geoffrey Moore and Ram Charan do a better job. No one has ever done it better than Bill Hewlett and David Packard (the HP Way) and Dave Packard’s 11 simple rules: http://www.hpalumni.org/images/Packard_11_Simple_Rules.jpg; I’m privileged to be of the HP pedigree.

Another topic sure to be on the Tyrolian agenda in June is income equality, that is, how to give some crumbs to the struggling masses so they will continue to pay debt service instead of coming after the oligarchs with pitchforks and torches. A just-published study by Larry Summers and Ed Balls on how to do that under the catchphrase “inclusive prosperity” urges “fair minimum wages, family-friendly labor standards, and profit sharing”, “increasing access to and the quality of our educational systems, “enacting major infrastructure investment, reforming countries’ unique corporate governance structures, and focusing on mitigating climate change”, and eliminating overseas tax shelters. What they don’t recommend is prying the money creation and debt machine away from the private Rothschild-controlled banks they represent.
