Don't understand why digital startups that produce no operating profit and create no new jobs are valued at billions of dollars? Douglas Rushkoff explains. IMHO, I would rate "Throwing Rocks At The Google Bus" at 5.0 stars.

Before an IPO is issued, private venture capital should be forced by law to carry a digital startup until it produces a consistent operating profit.

I have no doubt the author has been awarded numerous prizies for his continuing befuddled, nonsensical, misleading, addled and just plain disingenuous writing!
Yay for Princeton!!!!!
On a more somber note, the author wants us to believe this just happened, nothing came about by design, who knew what the super-rich would wrought with NAFTA, GATT, WTO, WTO Financial Services Agreement specifying the adoption of international usage of credit derivatives, credit default swaps, et cetera, et cetera!
Drivel read is drivel learned?
[Memo to Rushkoff: one-half of all new IT hires are foreign visa workers - - in an analysis of a so-called 277,000 new jobs created this past year, over 100,000 were based upon // assumptions \\ with the majority of the remainder going to foreign visa workers! Kind of kills your thesis, now don't it?????]
