Jim's Articles


I've known Jim Anderson of Silicon Valley Bank (Jim's bio) for many years and have always enjoyed his unique thoughts on the state of Silicon Valley, and the world in general. Whether you agree or disagree with Jim's analysis, he always makes us think about issues from varying perspectives. And if there's one thing I've learned from Silicon Valley over the decades, it's that we can never look at a situation, an industry or an economy in the same way, day after day or year after year. Jim agreed to write some articles for Ravix Group and I'm hopeful you'll find these articles relevant (and entertaining) in ever-changing times
