Economy markets speculation and the state Bill janeway welcome back to Bloomberg it is great to be back here Barry Especially with you that is quite, the curriculum vitae we left a ton of it off, we'll talk a little bit about BA systems in a bid. I want to start with your academic background economic your valedictorian at, Princeton you get your doctorate from Cambridge and economics how do. You go from that to venture capital well actually it's a closer connection than I knew at the time. It would be when I got to Cambridge I was studying. Under the students the top students who had been. Taught by John Maynard Keynes and I wrote, my dissertation for Richard Kahn who invented the multiplier is a way of looking at the impact of. Government spending or taxes on the macro economy but all of the work that I did everything I learned. There was about decision. Making under conditions of uncertainty decision making. By Investors workers consumers businessmen politicians. Who cannot know what the full consequences of their actions are. Going to be now isn't that effectively every, after, in the economy you. Got it but by the time I finished. My doctorate and was thinking I would pursue a? Course, in economics in academic economics it turned out that economics was converting itself for a long generation into a, kind of mechanical process of cranking. Out the efficient outcome on the assumption that everybody knew everything that's the marketplace itself is already reflecting all the information that's available and therefore right hey nobody can really beat the market consistently over time we're so Chicago pharma. In French and right across the whole economy the rational expectations hypothesis said government can't have any lasting impact on, the economy 'cause People in, the economy, will react an offset whatever it tries to do in any case I decided that at the ripe old age of twenty seven I could not take. This stuff and spend my life pumping it into the brains of innocent undergraduate so I went on I I talk. Of as my my thirty five years sabbatical right where in the trenches a venture capital that I have found in through joining an extraordinary firm whose core competence was understanding the science based industries chemicals departments articles to electron IX to computer I discovered, that, what, I learned at Cambridge as an academic economists was. Directly relevant to try to frame the sort of decisions and the. Sort of ways of protecting yourself your investors and the entrepreneurs you are backing. From The necessary ignorance of operating, at, the frontier of technology so that's pretty fascinating I wanna push back on the, concept that, hey this sufficient market hypothesis. Really doesn't get, it right a perfect example I read while I was doing, a little research for for our conversation some people have been wondering why the US tax cuts haven't. Had a larger impact, on, either employment or wages or RND and the most interesting explanation? I came across was, well everybody has already operated on the basis that there are tax havens and this thirty five percent corporate tax rate is, no, big, deal anyway we're all paying eighteen. Percent or less therefore a giant corporate tax cut has much less of an impact than you would imagine true or false and what does that say about your belief that, hey maybe the market is. Less efficient than we I think I I think. That's correct I don't. Think the an average of about eighteen percent, not, thirty five percent of the boys particularly the digital. Companies that can. Move their cash flows and their assets around by keys on a computer. They're not manufacturing steel built locomotives is just code very mobile they're very mobile second however the tax cut has had a. Significant substantial impact unavailable accessible cashflow not reported earnings, so, that but what happened to that cash flow and this is something again about the nature of the stock market that cash flow has. Overwhelmingly, been devoted apple being the most extreme. Example stock buybacks and dividends that not not raising wages for workers not investing in the, new stuff but. But putting more money in the in the pockets, of, stockholders which is a rational response of management Particularly, when their stock holders who are increasingly? Index funds right are necessarily very short term oriented and the executives are also short term oriented hey we we eliminated the agency problem by tying their, compensation the stock price coming up we continue our, conversation with Bill janeway discussing Xerox, park and the future of venture capital.
