Self-Proclaimed Libertarian and Co-Founder of Pay Pal, Peter Theil, to Write Book

Peter A. Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal, has struck a deal to write a book about how to build companies of the future, his publisher said on Tuesday.

The book, “Zero to One,” will be published in March 2014 by Crown Business, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group at Random House.

“I’m writing this book because we need to think about the future for more than just 140 characters or 15 minutes at a time if we want to make real long-term progress,” Mr. Thiel said in a statement. “'Zero to One’ is about learning from Silicon Valley how to solve hard problems and build great things that have never existed before.”

Thiel is listed as a member of the Steering Committee of The Bilderberg Group. Thiel is a co-founder of Palantir. The firm's software is used by counter-terrorism analysts and the United States Department of Defense and cyber analysts at Information Warfare Monitor

  1. I've mentioned to friends on the "further" or "Alternative" Right, that Peter Thiel should be funding them--he is the right chap to associate with amongst the elites, and the alternative right is the last best chance for the Theil 'persuassion'--prior to that community receiving the Down Syndrome treatment.

  2. He gave a lot of money to Ron Paul's campaign. I don't know what that other stuff is about. Doesn't seem consistent.
