Top VC Mike Moritz Calls American Tech Workers Lazy Compared to Chinese

Top tech venture capitalist Sir Michael Moritz of Sequoia Capital caused a stir last week by claiming that American tech workers in Silicon Valley are lazy compared to tech workers in China. Sequoia is one of the oldest and highest performing Silicon Valley start-up investors, with over 1,500 deals and 266 IPO and merger exits. Moritz, as a top partner, led Sequoia early-stage monster scores such as Google, LinkedIn, PayPal, Flextronics, Yahoo!, and Zappos. Current unicorns and/or future monsters he helped start include [24]7.ai, Berkeley Lights, GameFly, Instacart, Klarna, POPSUGAR, Strava, and Stripe. But Moritz published an opinion piece in the Financial Times last week observing that the California tech community’s preoccupations with equality and work-life balance “seem like the concerns of a society that is becoming unhinged.” Moritz sees Silicon Valley facing “furious” competition from harder-working Chinese tech workers, where “top managers show up for work at about 8am and frequently don’t leave until 10pm,” and ...

Gingrich: ‘Schumer Shutdown’ a ‘Major Mistake’ — Dems Pitted 700k Illegals Against Men, Women of U.S. Military

According to Gingrich, the shutdown is “not what the Democrats hoped for.” “[T]he Democrats made a huge mistake because what they should have done was pass the defense appropriations bill for the whole year — get it off the table, don’t threaten the men and women in uniform and their families,’ Gingrich told John Catsimatidis, host New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable.” “Instead, they stumbled into a situation where the Schumer shutdown cuts off funding for the American military on behalf of trying to get a deal for 700,000 people who entered the U.S. illegally.” He added, “I am totally opposed to holding up as hostage the families and the men and women in uniform who are risking their lives to protect this country.” Follow Trent ...
