This is the question that PayPal co-founder, Peter Thiel asks his interviewees.

From the beginning of the book, this brings us a peek into the billionaire investor’s way of thinking. Peter Thiel’s contrarian way of thinking helped him invest in some of today’s largest internet companies like Facebook, Airbnb or Spotify.

In his book, Zero to One, Thiel shows what it takes to go from Zero to One. To make Vertical Progress.

His own response to the contrarian question is that “most people think the future of the world will be defined by globalization, but the truth is that technology matters more.”

For many people, the progress that we will have in the future is an interesting subject to think about.

And for Thiel, progress can be divided between horizontal progress and vertical progress. Horizontal progress comes from expanding existing ideas and innovations and gradually improving these concepts.

Globalization is an example of horizontal progress, as it helps to distribute existing technologies to more and more people around the world.

But vertical progress, however, comes from creating something that did not exist before, as new technology or an extremely efficient method to do something.
