Published on

Here are the slides from a talk that I gave in Detroit. It's the first attempt at a deck to inspire people to think about building networks - for bringing together business and social good.

I think it's about 70% of where it needs to be - if you have any comments please discuss it with me on USV.com: http://www.usv.com/posts/i-gave-this-talk-in-detroit-on-peer-networks-and-community-capitalism-help-me-make-it-better

  • great thoughts (not too keen on the President since he is an example of someone that is not inclusive). I like the first thought that 'the fact we are so connected makes us more independent.'. There is huge power in that statement. I found that at UChicago. Much of the foundational theory of Classical/Chicago economics sums up that statement when transferred to Coase, Stigler, Friedman etc.
