The Gossip Economy (with Kyle Harrison)
A discussion of Harrison's piece on VC Contagion.
For this week’s Newcomer podcast, I talked with Contrary general partner Kyle Harrison.
We spent the first part of the episode talking about his piece VC Contagion: Is Venture Capital Killing Itself? I just published the essay exclusively in Newcomer.
We also discuss whether, when it comes to the private markets, information really wants to be free. Harrison talks about the gossip economy that powers the venture capital industry.
