Intel VC unit sale could trigger startup-valuation avalanche

I found this very interesting. I have long wondered if the valuations of the recent wave of app startups in places like San Francisco were justified. We shall see as Intel unwinds its venture capital division’s assets.

I question valuations in a Schumpetarian context. In that context, economic growth results from productivity enhancing technological progress. I am not convinced every app startup is indeed productivity enhancing. In fact, some like King Entertainment or Zynga may be productivity reducing.

Time will tell.
