These “industries” are need of entrepreneurs with radical innovations

Just a few stray thoughts…

Housing – 30% of income for Housing? Jeez.

Personal Transportation – Where is my $5k car?

K12 Education – Too much money, too little results, little customization, wasted human and material capital. There has to be better ways.

Post-K12 Education – Cost are out of control, benefits are overstated. There has to be better approaches.

Government – It shouldn’t be as intrusive, nor should it cost as much.

    TC1 and TC2 (tradesman/craftsman level 1 & 2)
    LS1 and LS2 ( Letters and Science 1& 2)

    If we were designing Post-K12 today, how would it look?

  4. How did I forget and leave “energy” off this list?
