Questo articolo di Quartz sostiene che molte assurde e fallimentari idee economiche da parte di lodate start-up americane siano dovute a un clima culturale nella Silicon Valley, ormai troppo distaccato dalla realtà.
Startups like Juicero are incapable of seeing their own absurdities. Shower enough money and attention on any person or company and the detachment from reality becomes inevitable. “When you have a lot of power you lose your ability to take the other person’s perspective,” Jeffrey Pfeffer, a professor at Stanford’s graduate school of business, told me recently. We were talking about Uber’s ill-advised name for its secret program to monitor Lyft drivers—“Hell”—but the observation applies here, too. The wealth and culture of Silicon Valley inoculates these companies against the obnoxiousness—or in the case of Juicero, laughability—of their own behavior.
Di Juicero avevamo già parlato, diffusamente, qui.
