Jason Calacanis has invested in a portfolio of 250 (private) companies, give or take, including #Uber and #Robinhood, and he got the first #Tesla Model S ever made. #SanFrancisco #commercialrealestate #CRE is “going to collapse,” he says in an interview on #CNBC.

“Why am I here? Why am I paying these prices? Why am I dealing with dysfunctional government on a local level and state level..? People want out of this town.
