This week we are joined by former co-founder and CEO of AOL, the man called the Washington Tech Whisperer, Mr. Steve Case. We are talking about the critical role that start-ups play in the U.S. economy. In the past three decades, 30 million jobs have been created by these fast-growing companies, accounting for all of the net job creation in the U.S. With the majority of venture capital and investments taking pace in New York, Boston and Silicon Valley, it explains why the majority of the US has not seen the same employment opportunities or economic improvements as these cities. Can changing the strategy of where investments are made help to stabilize the economy for the rest of the country? Listen now to hear what Case has to say.
