Last quote by Roger McNamee

Eventually they're going to be such a large percentage of the retail business that when Facebook and Google are going to try to sell ads the only guy on the other side is going to be Amazon. They will have that power eventually. Amazon is hosting all of the best applications, they have all the best intelligence that everybody wants. How long would it take them to go from zero to number one in e-mail, for example? How long would it take them if they decided to make security a really, really, really important element of what they're doing?feedback

Roger McNamee quotes

The tech industry is so exposed to that – it needs China. I am actually worried we are radically altering the way our economy works in real time. If we lose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) one of the levers of protecting American companies will go

I think this is part of a continuum that began a number of years ago when folks like Home Depot, and then CVS and Albertsons, Wal-Mart and others have experimented with

Amazon's model .... is way more consumer friendly, so I really do hope it works. I think this is another example of Amazon really pushing the envelope in really interesting

And that has been a mixed experience. ... These things have all had rough moments, and the consumer experience has been everywhere from fantastic – for the person who otherwise would have been in line for a long time – to just dreadful. And I don't think it's been as good for the companies as they'd like to

The early result from checkout indicates that, in fact, self-checkout works in a relatively narrow set of circumstances – with today's technology. Amazon's moving the technology

What the stock is worth is anybody's guess. But it is really clear to me that they're going to get everybody's attention. And when they do the IPO, I suspect it will be

And there really is nothing on the horizon one-tenth as large. You look at something like virtual reality – a concept I think will produce a really significant business opportunity – by comparison to smartphones, it's

The law of large numbers makes it almost impossible for Apple to outperform the market materially. And it's just reached a scale where hyper-growth is very hard. But accusing them of not having the courage to lead AI is

I view Amazon as a democratizing force in the economy, both in retail and in

I think that investors have gotten used to the idea that the U.S. has stable institutions – that we can count on the banking system, that we can count on the government, in general, to stay predictable within certain ranges. I think that this campaign has blown all of that

It makes me just generally more cautious. I believe that Silicon Valley, and our economy, can still produce a lot of greatness. But what I worry about is that the benefits of that have been so unevenly distributed for so long, that a lot of ideas are going to get killed too early, simply because we haven't been smart and shared the benefits broadly. The economy's just gotten out of

There are so many exciting things to invest in right now, like climate change technology. Like various forms of information technology. Medical technology. But people are not going to do that if they believe there is a risk of somebody getting in there and blowing up the system, either through Congress or through the presidency or in the

Lost of trust, loss of empathy are everywhere in the economy right

I think there were issues already under Obama, because of the Republican obstruction of his legislative agenda. But I think now you're in open warfare. And I think that's really bad for the investment markets in general. I think it raises capital costs everywhere.... I don't think it matters what we do in Silicon Valley at this pointe. We've got to fix those institutions or we're in big

If you want to get rich really quickly, this is where you

I think people in Silicon Valley are still open to change. But the things that they're working on aren't as valuable as the things people used to work on. And sadly, we've seen far more fraud in the past couple of years than I can remember any time in the 34 years I've been here. And so I think people just want to get rich now, and scams have become part of what goes on in Silicon valley and that troubles me

People have stepped back, if anything. The Valley has a real misogyny problem ... a lot of the people in the Valley who supported Barack Obama have been reluctant to support Hillary Clinton. And I think it is just part of this very deep-seeded misogyny that the Valley has been struggling with for

I think he's right in the diagnosis, wrong in the prescription for what to do about it. But that's my political view against his, and we're both entitled to those

It's been a real change in the culture. And Peter Thiel was one of the early leaders of that new wave and one of the most successful players in it. And I would actually suggest that while the typical person in Silicon Valley is a northern California liberal, the people in the entrepreneur class and in the senior management class are not. And I think there's a very deep libertarian streak

I respect Peter Thiel's right to have his own political views, no matter how much I may disagree with them. I'm not bothered by that part at all. My issues with Peter Thiel much more relate to corporate governance, and having his views associated with businesses I would like to invest in, which I think can do better without

Buying Twitter will be dilutive to almost everyone who's looking to

The problem for Samsung is ... they resisted doing the right thing. They tried to downplay the problems, and I think that has made this consumer problem a lot worse....I would not underestimate how bad this is for Samsung in the smartphone

I think that it's clear that Samsung cut corners. And when you get a market that's mature, where sales are harder to come by, the temptations to cut corners increase. So I do think the risk is rising that you'll see things like this from other

I look at this and I go, This is a different environment than the one we've been in.' Brexit is part of the same trend. People are less willing to subsidize those who can contribute to their growth and much more focused on maximizing the share of the pie they get from

What I like about it is that the fundamental story is so good that if you like the market, Facebook is an obvious name to hold and in the tech sector, it's the one you hold if you're only going to own one for high

Sitting from where I sit ... what's going on in China feels like we're in a reset. It's not done, and there will be some piece of news – something that bottoms the stocks out – that gives us a better chance to buy than right
