Eric Schmidt on sending innovators out of the U.S.: 'this is madness'

In an exclusive interview with Eric Schmidt, the Google chairman describes the "madness" of an America that attracts the world's smartest innovators, provides them with the best educations, and then "kick them out to found great companies elsewhere...this is madness."

The full interview–the first time cameras have been brought inside Google's New York offices–airs tonight at 7 p.m. ET on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront.

    "-Hollywood is one place in America that cannot surprise itself. For nothing is surprising: Good people do bad things for great publicity; publicist plan bad things so that people of Hollywood can become famous (everyone remembers Johnny Depp destroying a hotel room and then being arrested and charged with it’s destruction) and the machine of Hollywood exists in a world of personality and relationship implosions that, quite frankly, jade the world to the idea of what America is really all about: The Commercialization of the Senses…Nonsenses. Describe angst, you describe America on television is Hollywood." -Written for coverage of a girl (in the news) in America whom goes to Haiti one day to help and then goes to purchase a piece of Elizabeth Taylor's 'priceless' jewelry almost the next day. "How, truly, vapid are thy thoughts." (Innovation must truly build a better world. -For if necessity is the mother of invention, innovation is the father of good creation towards a better society in general.)
