Event Details

Activist investor Bill Ackmann is back in the headlines for teaming up on pharma. The debate reminded me of a recent blog post by the founder of HomeBrew who references the principled views of Marc Andreeson.

We will get to the restructuring of some industries in the coming months, but May's topic will explore basic drivers of value—principles and how two very distinct economic theorists look at this issue.
