“Gilded age money is actually the money that fuels the growth of Silicon Valley.”

Author Margaret O’Mara joins Cole and Bill to discuss her book, The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America. O’Mara’s work tracks the history of the people who built Silicon Valley and the explosion of big tech in America. The conversation covers the institutions that provided the framework for innovation, the background of the pioneers, and the investors that supported this district.
