[OP-ED]: What happens when you pay entrepreneurial teenagers $100,000 to not go to college?

 03/02/2017 - 15:06
Wall Street Journal reporter Alexandra Wolfe tells us how it all panned out for the first class of “Thiel Fellows” in her deliciously detailed book “Valley of the Gods: A Silicon Valley Story.”

In 2011, billionaire Peter Thiel made headlines when he announced that he would pay 20 teenagers $100,000 each to drop out or delay college and start businesses in biotechnology, finance, energy and education.

Thiel, the co-founder of PayPal, a venture capitalist and early investor in Facebook, wanted to underscore his belief that college costs too much, isn’t as intellectually rigorous as it once was, and leaves recent grads burdened with student loans that keep them from taking the entrepreneurial risks needed to spur the economy.

[OP-ED]: ¿Qué pasa cuando se les paga 100.000 dólares a adolescentes para que no vayan a la universidad?

 03/02/2017 - 15:02
La reportera del Wall Street Journal, Alexandra Wolfe, nos cuenta cómo resultó la experiencia de la primera clase de “Fellows de Thiel”, en un libro deliciosamente detallado titulado: “Valley of the Gods: A Silicon Valley Story”.

En 2001, el multimillonario Peter Thiel hizo noticia cuando anunció que pagaría 100.000 dólares a 20 adolescentes, si abandonaban sus estudios universitarios o los retrasaban para iniciar empresas de biotecnología, finanzas, energía y educación.

Thiel, co-fundador de PayPal, capitalista de riesgo e inversor temprano de Facebook, quería recalcar su creencia de que la universidad cuesta demasiado, no es intelectualmente rigurosa como lo era antes y deja a los graduados con la carga de préstamos universitarios que les impiden asumir los riesgos necesarios para activar la economía.

Si no sabe quién es Stephen MiIler, usted es una persona con suerte. Es decir, ¿por qué querría alguien conocer a un racista miserable, otro extraño hombrecillo que, al igual que el fiscal general Jeff Sessions, su antiguo jefe, solo es grande en su capacidad para el odio y la discriminación?
