Lecture Summary:
Today the American and world economies are trapped in a war of the worlds between old world banking that has created the crisis of our times, government that lags behind events, and new economy financing from venture capital, private equity, and those Wall Street firms that finance the great technology and job waves in green business, new energy, advanced medical breakthroughs, electric battery cars, water purification and other new industry that will define and dominate the near and long term global economic future.
