Why the Web 2.0/Tech 2.0 ‘Bubble’ Refuses to Burst

Innovation and economic stimulus can coexist

I agree with everything in the video except the false dichotomy Musk presents between spending vs. innovation. As the above Elon Musk clip shows, libertarian-leaning pundits create this false dichotomy that one much choose between social spending or the private sector–and or–that former comes at the cost of the later.
