Strategic Capitalism: An interview with Chairman and CEO of Protean Electric Bob Purcell

Bob Purcell, CEO of a young technology firm developing a revolutionary in-wheel electric drive system for cars, talks frankly about how much more China did to attract him to manufacture in China than the USA did to keep him in America. And he talks about how the Chinese system was designed to build the future of China's technological competence and the growth of its economy. In comparison, the American system was intent upon getting politicians re-elected. He believes in democracy, but sees the need to change the incentives of American politicians if America is to stay a technological and economic leader.
