Are Silicon Valley's valuations a symptom of unevenly distributed hyperinflation?


@alec I think it's just that people are investing more of their cash holdings in stocks and not bonds

@moltensteel @alec Chasing yield?

There is a definite locality to it though. If you want to hire a good VP Engineering in the bay, you need what, $300k total comp? So you need a high valuation.

Then the cycle repeats.
