But then again, we’ve known that for 20 years – seeing how everything they touch declines, and how they are unable to create their own Apple or Microsoft.

Keep in mind that Silicon Valley was created by hippies + college dropouts, not PhDs. “Math” is only a tiny fraction of the skills + talent needed to create something like Silicon Valley.

We don’t need these people – in fact they have driven the US economy $22 trillion into debt, and 21% of the working age American population into unemployment.

Definitely NOT “the smartest people in the world”.
