Video of Peter Thiel On The Higher Education Bubble

I came across this interesting video of Peter Thiel.  You might recall I have spoken about him before. He is an Internet investor who has created a project where he gives 200,000 dollars to college students to leave college and start their own businesses. It’s an experiment on the value of a college education.

In this video Mr. Thiel is interviewed and talks about why college is ripe for disruptive innovation. I think he’s right and I’ll talk about why tomorrow.
