Crashing Washington: How CleanTech/Silicon Valley Can Have Their Cake And Eat It Too
Editor's note: Guest writer Maury Litwack is a lobbyist, former Hill staffer, opinion writer and author of the recently published The Capitol Plan ? A Comprehensive Washington Advocacy Strategy. TechCrunch's Sarah Lacy recently penned an article which laid out the complaints against government intervention in Silicon Valley, while at the same time presenting the challenges faced by the subset of tech leaders who favor subsidies?in CleanTech. This paradox may have left some in the tech community frustrated at the obvious problem but without a clear solution. Is the government's hand to be slapped away in all situations? The solution isn?t really that difficult?it?s time for Silicon Valley to have its cake and eat it too.
