President Obama was touted as the Capitalist-in-chief for the United States in an article on BusinessWeek (here). Specifically he’s been pushing money into the clean tech sector.

Our current system, was built on ideas and assumptions from the 1940s and 50s. Back when smoking was healthy and gasoline wasn’t polluting. But since that time, we’ve learned that pollution is a serious issue and smoking causes cancer.
Electric and hydrogen powered vehicles are nothing more than ways to prop up old world ideas.
Look at our stimulus package: $300 Billion to the establishment. It didn’t actually stimulate the economy, nor did it trickle down to Main Street.
Look at health care reform: No one answered the question “Why have health care costs sky rocketed?”
The question with clean tech must be “Why are we trying to preserve a dying, antiquated way of doing things?”
We like to fix things, we aren’t good at solving problems.
