A recent report from Silicon Valley Bank found that when it comes to the tech sector, executive confidence is at its lowest level since the start of the 2008 recession. The number of Silicon Valley deals and venture capital funding dipped in 2015, tech stocks fell sharply in February and unicorn companies are starting to lose their value. We examine whether these are signs of a dot-com style bust or a simple correction in the market.

Guests:

Russell Hancock, president & CEO, Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network

Scott Budman, tech reporter, NBC Bay Area

Doug Henwood, economic analyst and contributing editor, The Nation; founder of Left Business Observer
