That's going to require a change of attitude (actually a return to traditional VC investing), and given that VC money has all but dried up, it is time to look at some policy and tax changes to make long-term VC investing very attractive, short term VC scams impossible, and unproductive high risk/high return options (like big-league day-trading) more risky and less lucrative.

Taxes and policy changes to further distort the market? No thanks.

I think that investors being now less likely to bid up an IPO 500% over the initial bid price will "force" the VC's to hold longer, and fund worthier ideas.

Until the next bubble at least.
