Patri Friedman: How to create a startup countrySubmitted by atrickpay on Thu, 12/23/2010 - 14:03
"So why is it that in one of the most advanced countries in the world, we’re still using the legal technology … of 1787?"
"But right now, there’s no way for an entrepreneur with a great idea for a startup country to make it happen. Unlike the software industry, where you can get started with just a laptop, to enter the government industry, you need a open space, a physical place that allows political experiments. But there is no such place — every piece of land in the world is claimed."
"So there are no startup countries, there’s no channel for innovation of entrepreneurs … no wonder it’s a such a sad industry."
