Josh Wolfe, CEO of Lux Capital, joins Michael Green of Thiel Macro to discuss the power of information asymmetry in venture capital markets. Institutions like SoftBank have been making big bets based on that information asymmetry, and appear to be cashing in for now. But Wolfe warns that the unprecedented levels of investment combined with the binary nature of success in venture capital markets could lead to unexpected losses.
