George Gilder is an unmitigated dingbat


There’s a radio show/podcast called “The Gilmor Gang” where a number of Silicon Valley’s eminence grises expostulate on the current state of technology and the computer industry. Gilmor is a bit of a ornery jerk, but he runs a pretty tight ship. At any rate, the guest this week was George Gilder, who soared to great heights during the boom by vastly overselling the telecom companies. Apparently the cold, hard reality of the crash hasn’t affected his hype chip, because he’s now singing the praises of China and saying Warren Buffett and George Soros don’t know anything about economics. Sorry, Gilder, but frankly you’re full of shit. I’ll bet on Buffett any day of the week over a failed madman with delusions of prophecy.
