We sit down with one of the co-founders of Paypal, Jack Selby, who described to us the laborious and disruptive processes involved in setting up one of the biggest online payment systems in the world. Jack also shares lessons learned at Clarium Capital and the challenges of managing a macro fund when you have the Fed on the other side of the trade as well as his latest venture into the independent film industry. A fascinating journey through a wonderfully diverse career.

    Loved his point on how tech IPOs spawn amateur angle funds that enable companies to retain talented engineers while they should be consolidated into better companies
