VC seems more sustainable compared to Hedge Funds though, a safer asset class?

Ron Stone

Short and sweet. I actually didn't know there was too much capital chasing good deals. My wife told me about an article on Yahoo (Buzz I think) today or yesterday about the thousands of inventors out there that can't get funding. Maybe a VC specializing in individual inventors would flourish. They could even help them put together a business plan. Just a thought. If we had more inventions in the US, we'd start to grow our manufacturing again, if they don't ship it overseas.
