Ian Bremmer sat down with Reuters' Paul Smalera to discuss President Obama's plans to boost the American economy. Watch here:
Felix Salmon Paul Smalera, you're the king of all media!
Paul Smalera Well yes, I suppose I am.
Felix Salmon First you post a piece about how Slate should spin itself off to some VCs
And now we've gone and done a video too!
So, I threw lots of very sensible objections at you
Paul Smalera Indeed you did.
Felix Salmon And at the end of the whole thing, I assume that you inwardly conceded that I was right
You're really just trolling, right? You're not actually serious.
Paul Smalera Ha! You assume incorrectly!
This is no Swiftian Modest Proposal, Felix.
I really do think Slate needs to tap into the cash, talent and ambitions of the tech economy in order to have a shot at making it another 15 years.
