If an economy is to function well, people need incentives to work hard and innovate. The pertinent question is not whether income and wealth inequality is good or bad.

Want to start a startup? Get funded by Y Combinator. October This essay is derived from a talk at MIT. Till recently graduating seniors had two choices: I think there will increasingly be a third option: But how common will that be?
The most ambitious students will at this point be asking: Why wait till you graduate? In fact, why go to college at all? Why not start a startup instead? A year and a half ago I gave a talk where I said that the average age of the founders of Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft was 24, and that if grad students could start startups, why not undergrads?
Graduation is a bureaucratic change, not a biological one. And certainly there are undergrads as competent technically as most grad students.
I now realize that something does change at graduation: If you start a startup in the summer between your junior and senior year, it reads to everyone as a summer job. And yet the prospect of a demo pushes most of them into a rush of activity.
Even if you start a startup explicitly to get rich, the money you might get seems pretty theoretical most of the time.
What drives you day to day is not wanting to look bad. So the best you can do is consider this force like a wind, and set up your boat accordingly. If you know your peers are going to push you in some direction, choose good peers, and position yourself so they push you in a direction you like.
Graduation changes the prevailing winds, and those make a difference. However high a startup may be flying now, it probably has a few leaves stuck in the landing gear from those trees it barely cleared at the end of the runway.How to Find a Catchy Title for Your Paper/Essay.
