The playing field has been pretty equal in the automotive industry for a long time.
    Yes but will Ford's CEO name his son X ∆ A-12? Or call an underwater rescue consultant who helped save 12 teen boys "pedo-guy"? I didn't think so. It's not his fault that the lamestream financial media can't see the value added by these bold and completely stable moves.

    Wait, what is that second part about?!?

    The pedo part? Musk inexplicably called one of the rescuers trying to save those Thai divers a few years back a pedophile. Probably ruined the guys life and I never heard if there was any real reason or not.

    As weird as it may sound, itís one of the main reasons I wonít get a Tesla. They are great cars it seems, but Musk has too many screws loose and has gotten too powerful for my liking given his unpredictability and lack of remorse. His words now can move entire markets (ie what he did to Bitcoin) but he doesnít show any restraint or concern for how it affects others. I truly believe the guy is a sociopath.

    Thanks. I was not aware of the Thai cave diver thing. What a weird thing for him to get involved in.

    Musk thought he had a solution for the rescue, and wasn't happy when it wasn't used. He lashed out.

    Are you my wife? She's has the same argument against Tesla. Thinks Musk has a case of the nutters.

    And if I remember correctly, experts said his solution was completely wrong. Probably a main reason for the lash out. People like him donít really like being told they are wrong.

    The last few posts make him sound like a 21st century presidential candidate, except I donít think the birthers will have to work to hard to prove he wasnít born here.

    It's not unusual for a very very smart guy to be partially off his rocker...he's done an amazing thing with Tesla, no question, but it will be fascinating to see how he fares if and when the major automakers start producing competitive products.
    Last I saw, the P/E ratio was well over 100, which is a bit rich.

    Elon Musk was born a Canadian citizen, should we hold that against him? That could be what's wrong with him.

    ------------

    As for birthers, Obama is a Keynesian and I can prove it!

    This being an investment/economic thread, I assume that's ok to mention that somewhat random fact?

    Fewer laughs when Musk cuts off your poutine and maple syrup supply.

    Leave it to the Wolfpack fan to be a Stiglitz in the mud.

    He was born and raised in South Africa. He claims Canadian citizenship from his mom. His father was South African and made a fortune from emerald mines. I do dislike the man and would not buy a Tesla or a Solar City roof or a Starlink internet dish because of that.

    It'll trickle down to normalcy eventually.
