Stephen Pagliuca on Free Trade
We move on to the Wall Street crash and subsequent bailouts, and Pagliuca suddenly asks, "Who do you think the largest venture capitalist in the world is?" I don't know, and he has his answer ready. "The U.S. government," he says.
Well, that's a different kind of venture capitalist. But Wall Street is continuing with high-stakes gambles not backed up with enough capital, Pagliuca says. "That's why I need to go to Washington because I understand how to get our money back, and understand the trade-offs involved."
