I am sure you caught Fred’s 2018 review?
Now comes prediction time.
I have always felt that as the noose tightens around Trump that he would quit before any impeachment process ever kicks off. Let’s see.
I agree if this happens it will project an air of USA instability and that will be enough to take down global markets a notch or two.
I think in VC startup land we are looking at something different but still need to be pragmatic.
I love how Fred describes the long-term view:
But all of that is going to happen at the margin. I expect 2019 to be another solid year for the tech/startup sector as we are in a possibly century-long conversion from an industrial economy to an information economy and the tailwinds for tech/startup vs the rest of the economy remain in place and strong.
Just started reading Homo Dues – A Brief History of Tomorrow. The time it will take for the total digital transformation of practically everything is longer than people think so we have a long ways to go.
Happy New Year!
