Creative Destruction Uber Alles!

 (Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

And the winner of the Aughts is….GOOGLE! Chris Thompson account of Google’s decade reminds me of a bands name: And You Will Know Us by Our Trail of Dead. Thompson concludes:

In industry after industry, by offering services for nothing, Google has metastasized the modern economic dilemma: Everything is free, but no one has a job. This was probably inevitable, and maybe we should thank Google for forcing us to face reality now, and in such a dramatic fashion. But as we look back on the last 10 years, one thing is clear: Google should change its slogan from “Don’t be evil” to “Be everywhere.”

Now if these guys would team up with Oxford to offer free university degrees…

Happy New Year!

  1. So it’s Google’s fault there is double-digit state and national unemployment? Funny, but I thought it was the public bailout of private debt incurred by the banksters.
