"More, so than we're helping ourselves and that should be obvious. But when we're in this kind of politicized a climate, we just go so hard to one theory. We go so hard to one train of belief that we can ignore the reality of all the other data that exists and I, want us to be better than that. Let's be better than that. So we can have a copy of compelling understanding because when you hear about these. Projected models like the one that was published by researchers at Texas, A and M.. Declaring that face prevented more than sixty six, thousand infections in New, York, city and less than a month in this particular study was in the mask facts documentary which if you haven't seen that. Who where we're? At Where you the Elon Musk jumped in the spaceship to contribute. If you're here on planner earth, you need to watch the mass back documentary but this was in there and again, you can see the visual along with this is just jaw dropping when you can from a logical. Centered. Perspective look at it should be like what is wrong with us? Why are we thinking something that this is something that is not and so these researchers in the lead research study stated that quote by analyzing the pandemic trends without face covering using the statistical method in by projecting the trend, we calculated that over sixty six thousand infections were prevented by using a face mask and little over a month in New York City man, just a month sixty, six, thousand. Prevented but listen. Statistical method projecting the trend. These are theoretical models. Hurry in if the underlying premise of the projected model of the theoretical model is flawed. The underlying premise here is that mass are effective yet. Almost, every single randomized controlled trial in the real world with real people have found them to be ineffective. This entire project model is null and void. So be able to keep your eyes out for these projects studies that are based on theory. Okay well, we have some real factual data from real people. And one of the most interesting things about studies like this is that it's not just the fact of okay. We got study saying that they're ineffective..

"Ten minutes of ninety percent of the US population has increasingly begun using stores as distribution notes for e commerce sales very much like how Amazon has been set up now. So, this pilot program will primarily learn. How the customers interact with this technology. So What do they do with it? which bits they lake, what versions of delivery mechanisms do they prefer? Is it convenient? Is it easy etc etc. so like many different technology pilot programs out there, it's really trying to understand the value, the use case, and potentially the business model that these delivery drones can be used in the future. But one of the already known advantages of drones is contactless delivery, which is, of course, much more important today's era than it was some six to eight months ago. This is going to enable covert nineteen self collection kits to be delivered to customers already in the northern part of Los Angeles with a pilot site set up, but actually each of the different drone companies will be trialing delivery of different goods. So. As I've talked about on the podcast in the past, namely with a robot delivery trials, this example really shows how automated technologies or encroaching into last mile delivery jobs, which themselves have been growing substantially over the last few years and gotten a really significant boost over the last few months due to covert. So the next industry or trend that I wanNA, talk about deals with self driving cars. So, what news update would be complete without something coming from Elon Musk right? Only this past week, did he mention that Tesla's full self-driving autopilot system will be ready to test in a month or so I think this is really keeping to his word when back in July, he mentioned that Tesla would have a full level five autonomous vehicle functionality ready by the end of the year. Unfortunately, there was a lack of description of what this autopilot entails. But if I do another of these update episodes, I'll be sure to include a description of that and see if it is really the promised level fife autonomy. As, well, connected to this trend is news that actually comes out. Of China. So autonomous vehicles startup auto x announced the public launch of its self driving taxi service in. Shanghai? This is simply called Robo taxi. It already faces competition from a company called Didi, which is China's largest ride hailing platform, which launched its own robot taxi pilot program in Shanghai at the end of June.

Tesla aims for cheaper cars with new battery

"Today is Tesla's Battery Day It was hosted in conjunction with the annual shareholders meeting for Tesla. Elon musk, searching for a cheaper way to make the batteries for his cars in an effort to make the cars more affordable. For more on this, we turn to the KCBS Ring Central News Light and checking with Tim Higgins in his tech and autos reporter for The Wall Street Journal in San Francisco. So, Tim, what have we learned through Battery Day about the future of Tesla? Well, Saturday is really inflection point for the company. Um you on musket basically spent the last decade trying to bring out an affordable car for the masses. The Model three. The problem with the Model three is that it costs on average about $50,000. They briefly hit the $35,000 price point of view about a year ago or so, but it wasn't able to stay there because it was just too expensive to make it at that point and still keep the company going. And so what you honor is trying to do is lower the cost of batteries, and that's what he announced today, plans that he say over the next three years would lower a battery cost more than half And promising a $25,000 vehicle. What kinds of things we don't have to get to terribly into the weeds on it are going to reduce the cost of that battery, how to make it better and cheaper. Well, I think that people were looking at today's event for some sexy new cool technology. Their president really disappointed because really, they're getting their through a lot of Prick technical ways in so in total there getting those savings and things like building manufacturing. They're going to start building their own battery, so different chemistry, different way of making the vehicle for the battery packs that sort of thing so kind of combination of a lot of like integration of Off the that the ingredients that go into a

What you need to know about Tesla's 'battery day'

What you need to know about Tesla's 'battery day'

"Over the last few months there has been information leaking out about Tesla establishing a new battery production line near the Fremont factory, and it is aptly code-named roadrunner not only does that hint speed, but there might also be. A reference there to roadrunner and Wylie coyote the looney tunes characters engaged in a perpetual game of Jason, in which Miley Coyote could never catch the roadrunner. Maybe legacy auto is the Wiley Coyote to Tesla's roadrunner. So one of the expectations for Battery Day is that Tesla unveils this roadrunner production line to demonstrate the potential throughput that can be accomplished with all. These advancements I believe Ilan made reference to this today as well as tussles other progress in manufacturing outside of batteries. When he tweeted quote speed running Victorio and real life dot dot dot, and quote if you're unfamiliar Factoria is a video game described themselves. By saying quote Factoria was a game in which you build and maintain factories you'll be mining resources researching. Technologies building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies and quote that you're sounds a lot like. TUSLA. So a lot of these are related but I believe manufacturing and energy density at the pack level to be the two most important things for battery day. But it doesn't just end there. There are few other topics that may be discussed at Battery Day the first. which has been heavily speculated on is the possibility of Tesla introducing a million mile battery. So first things first on that that means a million mile life cycle or another way to say, that would be the ability for the battery to recharge. Let's say three or four thousand times without having significant capacity degradation because of already done a full ten fifteen minute episode. On the Million Mile Battery I'M NOT GONNA go into as much detail on that here a link that episode but the Short version is that they're already batteries capable of producing that many cycles. It's just a matter as it always is with batteries of the trade offs are willing to make. For example, does that increase the life cycle lower energy density or? Increased cost, and if so maybe it's not worth the tradeoff in fact, Tesla already has batteries that are capable of doing a million miles. They just don't use them in their vehicles because of those trade offs rather they use them in their energy storage products. So we'll see what Tesla has to say about a million mile battery they have talked about wanting. To, get there with the whole powertrain and the past, which really makes a lot of sense when you bring in a Tommy because if a scenario exists where there is a full self-driving row taxi that vehicles going to be traveling a lot more than ten thousand or fifteen, thousand miles per year if the utilization is five times higher or ten times higher. Then to have a useful life of ten years twenty years, you're going to need a million mile powertrain including that million mile battery. It also makes a lot of sense for other utility vehicles such as the upcoming Tesla semi the other wildcard that could potentially add life cycles to the battery for a vehicle would be vehicle to grid technology. Again, we've talked about. Tesla hasn't been super bullish on that technology in the past. So it's relatively lower on my expectations list there certainly value to that feature, but there's also complexity in extracting that value. So we'll wait and see what Tesla has to say on life cycle and any additional features that could drive utilization of those battery packs higher next on the watch list is. Charging capability there's a lot of potential here. We've already seen Tesla over the years increase the supercharging rate from ninety kilowatts to one hundred, twenty kilowatts, two, hundred, and fifty all the way up to two hundred and fifty kilowatts at peak now, and at the cyber truck unveiling last November onscreen they shut a graphic that showed the charging capability of the cyber. At. Two hundred and fifty kilowatts plus you elon musk at that unveiling said quote it will be capable of more than two hundred and fifty kilowatts will reveal the actual number later and quote. So maybe battery day ends up being that later we know that just last week lucid, motors announced that the lucid air will have three hundred and fifty kilowatt capable charging Tesla's kinda competitive. So I'm not sure they're gonNA, sit around for too long being outmatched on that charging rate. If we can get a bit speculative for a moment, one of our listeners, Florian halen helped me out with this it appears that the V. Three superchargers should be capable. Of quite a bit more output than the hundred and fifty kilowatt. Max. That does vehicles can charge at today to get a full understanding of this, we have to start with the version two superchargers. If we look at the label on those chargers, we can see the voltage listed at four hundred and ten volts. They amperage listed at two hundred and seventy amps to get the power capacity. We just multiply the voltage by the amperage. So in this case that comes out to about one hundred and eleven kilowatts but what happens in reality is that vehicles on version two charges, one hundred and fifty kilowatts all the time. So the amperage here is. Actually understated the same thing appears to be happening with the V. Three superchargers as well on the label for those, we can see that the voltage is thousand and the amperage is four, hundred and twenty-five. So multiplying those together yet Max power capacity of four hundred and twenty five kilowatts. So that's already higher than the two hundred and fifty kilowatts. The vehicles can accept today leaving some room for upside and charging rate but back to the amperage, it appears that the amperage capacity is understated on the be three charges as well. We have a screen shot here of a model three charging at that Max two hundred and fifty kilowatt rate, but with. The voltage only at three hundred, sixty eight. So if we divide those two hundred and fifty thousand watts, two hundred and fifty kilowatts by three hundred, sixty eight that gives us six, hundred eighty amps, which is well above the four hundred twenty, five amps on the label right now, a model threes battery is limited to four hundred and four volts. So at six hundred and eighty amps that would mean a Max charging rate of two, hundred, seventy, five kilowatts instead of the two, hundred fifty, that is listed, but it's probably limited at two hundred and fifty kilowatts to avoid overheating if we consider a new battery though maybe some of those constraints can. Be removed and the V. Three superchargers seems capable of delivering quite a bit more power than that two hundred, fifty kilowatts. If we use the six hundred eighty amps here that we have already seen register out of a supercharged V three location and we multiply that by the maximum a thousand volts we could be looking at a power output of six hundred eighty kilowatts from three charter and potentially even higher based on whatever that true actual limit on ams it's. So none of this means that Tesla's going to suddenly unveil a battery that's capable of charging at seven hundred kilowatts just that the V. Three chargers do seem to be putting in. Place. The infrastructure for higher charging to come over time with a new cell likely being introduced. Maybe we will hear more about that at battery debt last couple of aspects that I've heard discussed the first mining Tesla has alluded to maybe getting into mining someday if they needed to that's not something that I expect here from Battery Day as should be cleared by this point in time I think they've got enough to go through without going down that figurative rabbit hole but I do expect. Yulon mosque to again plead with suppliers to ramp up supply especially for nickel next is a point on Tesla suppliers we know that tussle works with Panasonic LG. L. To source batteries from them. So the question has arisen of how those partnerships are going to work and evolve if Tesla is designing and manufacturing their own cell and I think this is answered by what we spoke to earlier with product differentiation Tesla is going to need all the batteries they can get their hands on it's going to take time to ramp up their own battery production. So not only can they not just convert all their products over to their own cells instantly even if they were to do that, they still probably need even more batteries so they're going to continue to partner with these other suppliers though suppliers give them viable. Products, which can help Tesla Grow capture revenue capture prophet regardless of their own endeavors and battery cells and production as far as tesla actually supplying these cells to others I definitely don't expect that not for a long long time if at all, and that's really for the same reason, Tesla is gonNA need these cells themselves supplying them to another oem just adds again that extra layer of cost because both sides need their margin that creates a more expensive and a product for the consumer, which is contradictory to tussles goal of accelerating the advent of sustainable energy. So as long as Tesla is battery constrained, which I expect to be for a long time. See them supplying their batteries to anybody else. All right. So after all of this, we finally come to the product. The last thing to maybe expect out of Battery Day could be the introduction of the plaid model s and Model X. potentially being the first products to utilize these new battery cells as Tesla works to ramp up that initial production it's been yearly quiet on the plaid. Powertrain Front for a while now, but the timing is about right and maybe we will finally again here's something about the new roadster.

Germany promises Elon Musk full support to get Tesla's Berlin plant ready

"Moving onto the stock, then volatile day for the Nasdaq and for Tesla Tesla finished down five point eight percent on the day to four hundred and forty seven dollars thirty seven cents. So just a bit above where the split happened at around four forty two but that did compared to the Nasdaq finishing up one percent today. So this provides a good illustration of the potential downsides of the at the market structure that Tesla has employed for this potential up to five. Billion, dollar capillaries that we had talked about yesterday. The stock is now down about ten percent from when that agreement was put in place, which demonstrates the risk of not just raising at that fixed price at the time. Of course, with the structure, you have to be comfortable with that risk and presumably not wanting to raise that money badly enough to do it at a lower price and status giving yourself the option if the price stays at that level or goes. Hi. I'm not sure currently on whether we get any sort of updates or when we get updates on whether or not Tesla has issued new shares as a part of that equity distribution agreement. So I'll try to do a little bit more digging on that but if anyone has the insight on that, please let me know for now though because the stock has fallen would be surprised if they have acted on that and issued any new shares we did have just. A couple of pieces of news specifically related to the stock today one is from significant Tesla investor Baillie Gifford. An investment firm that has for a long time held greater than five percent of the outstanding shares up Tesla stock that five percent level requires additional disclosures around trades with the SEC. So in an SEC, filing baillie Gifford has disclosed that their ownership stake in. Tesla has dropped below five percent of the company. I would assume the selling has been happening for. As has been dramatically rising, of course. So for firms that already had a significant portion of their portfolios in Tesla, it just becomes too overweight and they end up trimming it back to add more diversification to their portfolio. See the same sort of stuff from our best Baillie differed managing partner James Anderson said quote. The substantial increase in share price means that we needed to reduce our holding in order to reflect concentration guidelines which restrict the weight of a single stock in clans portfolios. However, we intend to remain significant shareholders for many years. Ahead, we remain very optimistic. About the future of the company, Tesla no longer faces any difficulty in raising capital at scale from outside sources, but should there be serious setbacks and share price. We would welcome the opportunity to once again increase our shareholding. We are privileged to have been decimals largest external shareholder over a period for the development of the company. We are mentally grateful for the extraordinary efforts and achievements of Tesla and driving forward a transportation and energy revolution in the face of persistent skepticism and often downright hostility without tussles efforts. The possibility of hurting climate disaster would have been significantly reduced and. So pretty strong statement there from Anderson I think safe to say that Baillie Gifford is not reducing their position Tesla due to any perceived weakness in the company rather just their funds management structure. In other news on the SOX Today Bank of America analyst Jon Murphy has increased his price target from three hundred, fifty dollars per share to five hundred and fifty dollars per share I believe that the second highest now on the street in terms of a base case Murphy noted the strength into the underlying business that the high stock price affords. Tesla. Saying that it creates A. Positive feedback loop due to the low cost of capital that Tesla has available to it. Through follow on offerings I would definitely agree with that positive feedback loop that helps Tesla not only raise capital, but it should help them get better terms on debt perceived strength of the business by the market can help desolate negotiations with suppliers. Again, especially, help confidence in customers Tesla's can exist going. Forward to service their vehicles, if they do decide to purchase and hey, it's probably helped a lot of investors be able to afford the product, which is also not a bad thing i. think the downside is that with a high stock price, there's potentially less upside available. So it can be a little bit more difficult to acquire talented recruit talent because you don't really have that one. Hundred X upside in the stock anymore like you might add twenty billion or thirty billion. There are offsets to that too though of course, some of that reduced upside comes alongside reduced risk, which is also important in making career decisions anyway back to the Bank of America note, despite the two hundred dollar price target increased to five fifty Murphy does maintain a neutral rating on the stock. Last thing today's quick update on a musk being in Germany. As we said earlier this week he's there for Giga Berlin meetings as well as with cure vac and Bloomberg has shared a couple updates from those Giga Berlin meetings according to Bloomberg. Meyer who is the German? Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy told musk quote. We are very proud of your car plant and Brandenburg and we wish you good luck with that. You'll have every assistance you need and. Bloomberg also notes that construction thus far has progressed relatively smoothly I think we're all pretty aware of that and they write quote a summer twenty, twenty, one production start is still the goal Brandenburg's premier Dima Vodka said in an email statement and.

Russian Tries to Hack Tesla

"Almost A. state-sponsored spy story we have something that really happened. And I tease this by quoting our friend Marcus hutchins twitter reaction upon learning of it just to remind everyone marcus is the well known security researcher and reformed cybercrime hacker. You know he actually reformed in his teenage years, but the FBI didn't forgive him for that and of course, as we know his future became uncertain when the FBI grabbed him. In Las Vegas is Logan Airport as he was departing or a preparing to depart for from the US for his home in the UK, following the annual black hat and DEFCON conferences. Well last Thursday. Reacting on twitter to the news of this story which had just broken marcus quite correctly observed he tweeted quote one of the benefits of cybercrime. Is Criminals don't have to expose themselves to unnecessary risk by conducting business in person. Flying into the US Jewish diction to have mel wear manually installed on a company's network is absolutely insane. Unquote. Okay. So what was all that about? A TWENTY-SEVEN-YEAR-OLD RUSSIAN NATIONAL By the name of or. Igla, rich. Crutch. Nikolov. Traveled to the US an attempted to subvert and bribe an employee working at Tesla corporations massive Nevada based gigafactory. Eager. Ultimately agreed to pay the employees one million dollars to plant malware inside Tesla's. Internal Network. The. Good news is the employees reported the offer. To his employer Tesla and then worked with the FBI to build an airtight case and to set up a sting which included having him covertly record face to face meetings. Discussing this, Russian the twenty-seven-year-old Russians proposal in their complaint which followed Egos, arrest and arraignment wit last Tuesday the prosecutors wrote. The purpose of the conspiracy was to recruit an employee of a company to Syrup Tissue, transmit malware provided by the CO conspirators into the company's computer system. EXFILTRATION data from the company's network and threatened to disclose the data online unless the company paid the CO conspirators ransom demand. The complaint said that the malware would be custom developed. Propagate through the company's network. For it to work the group said, it needed the employees to provide information about the employers, network authorizations and network procedures. Correct correct Yakubov said, the malware would be transmitted either by inserting a usb drive into a company computer or clicking on an email attachment containing malware. Ebor explained the infecting computer would have to run continuously for six to eight hours for the malware to move fully through the network. To distract network personnel, a first stage of the malware would perform a denial of service attack while a second stage performed the data exfiltration. When the complaint was initially unsealed last Tuesday the identities of all parties was still confidential being identified only as company A, and C H s one which is their abbreviation for confidential human source number one that is the employees. But last Thursday Elon Musk confirmed that yes. Indeed it was his company that was the target of this whole operation. The charging document with was filed in federal court in Nevada detailed and extensive end determined attempt to infect. Tesla's network the defendant again twenty-seven-year-old Eager E- Gore Vich. Crush Cov allegedly traveled from Russia to Nevada and then met with the unnamed employees on multiple occasions. When Eagles initial five hundred thousand dollar bid failed to clinch the deal. The defendant doubled the offer to one million dollars according to the complaint Crutch Kav wined and dined and boozed up the employees and when discussing especially sensitive details conducted conversations in cars. When FBI agents couldn't conduct physical surveillance in restaurants or bars, the employees recorded them. One meeting occurred on August seventh in a car crutch Cov had rented referring to the employees again as C. H. S. One, the prosecutors described that. Seventh meeting as follows they said during this meeting which the FBI had consensually recorded. Crutch Cov reiterated some of the details of the criminal activity previously proposed to. C.. H.. S. One. Credit Yakubov described the malware attack as he did before. Adding that the first part of the attack, a De dos would be successful for the group in quotes but the victim companies security officers would think the attack had failed.

Cobb stated each of these targeted companies had a person working at those companies who installed malware on behalf of the group. To ease, C.. H. S ones concerns about getting caught.

"Elon Musk E move the J. Lo of tech innovation. He's going to reveal a device that connects your brain to a computer. This is his neural link device, but today he's going to show it. In action. 3 P.m. Pacific time, Okay, I'm looking at this still thinks it's okay. Elon Musk has said neural link will have a human brain implant ready within a year. The device will be inserted under the skull and a small robot will connect threadlike electrodes to the brain. Once implanted, the chip could connect your brainwaves to ANAP and may be able to help people with neurological conditions Now, although I'm I'm going to there's also there's the privacy. There's the weirdness with APS data coming right out of your brain. We can get to that. In a moment, I will say with a lot of these things. The first helpful part would be in terms of enhancing Are helping somebody with a disorder some sort of neurological condition If it was there to Ah, just correct stuff that is in error within the neural pathways. I can sort of understand that. But that were were also worried about data collection from Facebook. What about from your face with inside your skull? If you bring women actually are attached to an app. That's all. Seems he's going to do some sort of demonstration today. Yes, yes, He's not gonna have it hooked to his brain. Is he No, I wouldn't put it past on the hook it to his own brains will come out with like a bandage over his head. Who wants to watch my dreams? Actually, this is your dreams. This is You're talking about privacy concerns with also this fund. Smart phones already have fundamentally changed the way we live our lives, and then if you're just constantly, if you really in theory, you can put the phone down and get away from it. I know that's very hard for a lot of people and anxiety sets in almost five minutes on ly five minutes after, but If it's just in your brain, and you can't disconnect it. It's completely changed forever. Yeah, I I think what people are really looking forward to, and he's going to say that this is like a 25 year thing before you get what you call the full brain interface. Wow, that's the gold 25 years. Yes, full. Check out those three words together in a sentence. Full brain interface. Come on, he slur two plus two equals four. Hey, my thoughts are leaking out. I'm not thinking about your Yamamoto said that I never think about charity Yamamoto, Even you don't know how to pronounce your name. It's called even Eric. I am Erich von Hastler America on he slurred. The truth is that that's that's my actual name. The rest is a radio, so I changed it to Eric Von Kessler, just for the radio. He slurred just doesn't work, either. So I figured I want to watch this. I think it might look kind of I don't know. Weird. Strange, ridiculous. Wonderful. I have no idea. I feel like it's going to be a little bit of a letdown. If we're only five years away from the full brain interface. I don't know how much we're going to see today. It probably will be alive, and I mean it's a letdown if you're expecting something on the part with fireworks, but if it is the lead into this full brain interface and 25 years Pretty pivotal moment and think about what we were talking before about aging and getting older. If you khun at some point upload your whole brain where that's always been. What is you? What's with the boundary of Uru, then also in that computer, and then does that guy's name Raymond Kurzweil or whatever his name is That guy? That's the age of spiritual machines? Yeah, basically, we just take all of our thoughts, and we put them in zeros and ones. And we find a body or something from later. I have no idea, but I don't want to be alive forever to jar those. Hey, I'm alive. Never died, But I can't. Yeah, I guess he much are already in a jar. You move, But think about being locked in locked in syndrome. Someone has a stroke in the brain is still functioning at full capacity. But you have no ability to move your body. The point you realized you're just a brain. In a jar yet I don't want that. Don't be like that. You know, in the like the Frankenstein movies when they go in looking for the brains of the jars. I don't be one of those except I'm alive. Everyone wasn't live forever.

Rob Maurer Of Tesla Daily And David Trainer Of New Constructs

"Everybody, Rob Power here. Today we have the good fortune to be joined by David trainer of New Constructs David. Put out a note last week with his team on Tesla that was relatively bearish. So I thought it would be a good opportunity to have somebody on the podcast. Maybe give a different perspective than what is sort give day to day and hopefully. We can both learn a little bit throughout the course of the conversation So David a former analyst with credit. Suisse. And then for the last couple decades, he is the founder and CEO of new contracts on investment research firm so David Nathan, you want to add to that in terms of your workings INS specifically this note on Tesla. Yes sure. No. We we're an independent research firm. So we don't doing any investment banking or trading There was a time when I ran a hedge fund will be don't do that anymore. So there's there's no short position in Tesla and honestly there's there's no axe to grind here. I'm flattered to to you on the show and I'm also a big fan of cars and I think beautiful. And I think would Elon Musk has been. Has Been Great for our world. I. Think he was really a tipping point in enforcing the big autos to to move more toward electric vehicles. What let's face it. You know one has to question why they never really wanted to do it on their own how they needed external government pressure to to increase gasoline efficiency. When that at the end of the day, we just lowered the cost of ownership for their product, which is a good thing but yet they didn't do it want us to wonder why that is. So I think he lawn. With respect to Tesla Electric Vehicles and our environment has done the world huge service. Insides one lead that fan I think the cars are beautiful. I wish I had one of my kids always rave about how much how awesome they are when they ride in one of their friends parents Tesla's it's funny in in. So I think there's a lot of good that has come out of what you musk is done at this space as well as other spaces. And the beautiful green cards. So you guys are kind of approaching it from a just an overvalued perspective on the company right now. Yeah. It's it's really kind of an old school throwback to the fiduciary in investor as opposed to the speculator the trader. Look there's no doubt you know as Jim, Cramer said he he's a fan test left for the last eighteen hundred points right? I mean look the momentum. The trading aspect here's Banal and it's been a huge wealth creator. An Art perspective is very narrowly focused on the fiduciary and decide the of risk. In, a market that's been such a strong performer. Since the The deer in in March you know, I think some people we got some feedback that people were kind of looking at how to manage whether or not we're at the top or or not in this market and we thought you know look. The first thing you do is identify where there's the most risk in your portfolio. So we kind of went through we cover around three thousand stocks as well as ETF's mutual funds and we looked for like, okay where's this? Where's the where's the risk extreme and then you know especially with Tesla, you gotta take into account all these sort of the optionality, all these great things that that Tesla might do. To, justify the future cashflows embedded in the stock price. And we went through the checklist and we thought, okay, we think there's a fair case to be made here for those with fiduciary responsibilities and produce responsibilities. To Take into account. Or. Consider. The risk in the stock relative to fundamentals. Sure. I know that that's a big part of your note later on. So definitely get through to some the valuation stuff So I thought probably the best way to kind of just kind of structure. This was to go point by point. I've had a lot of listeners that have read your note and have sort of asked me to give my my thoughts on it. So I thought you know what better way to do that than have the man himself here to discuss with me so Sweet. So you've got a lot of I mean this is probably a few thousand word article here. So let's just start right at the top. So you start off by saying. Really comparing the devaluation of tesla per car sold versus other automakers. I wanted to just sort of get your thoughts on this because I think you know this perspective or this this particular metric in isolation to me isn't all that particularly meaningful us are wanted to you just sort of get your take on why Joseph Start off with this and then get sort of my thoughts as well. Yeah, we're just sort of a level center to get a sense of how rich the expectations are and in just to give some perspective our approach valuation is is as I say, tomato analysts. Would you rather be a fortune teller or critic before to tell her and we see Mr Market or the stock market is a fortune teller. Here, she is giving us a price every day, and what we do new constructs is reverse engineer what the future cash flows, the revenue, the margins, the capital efficiency, the business, all that we reverse engineer with those need to be to justify the price and so. What we like to do is kind of begin be objective perspective on evaluation is and that's what we see in this chart like there's a big disconnect. It's not to say that Tesla can't achieve these expectations but for right now, there's a lot of credit given to what the company will do in

Jim Cramer & Rob Maurer Discuss TSLA Stock

"Everybody around here today, we have a special guests on the program Jim Cramer. Needs no introduction Jim thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us today and talk a little bit about desolate. I think Tesla's the most important stock in the market because it's created a tremendous amount fascination which you know why like it's been hard to find people who understand Tesla like you like you do in other words when I say that mean people understand Tesla, the car tesla the Stock Tesla, the myth test, the reality, which is why it's so exciting to speak with you because frankly anything Tesla I regard as the most exciting thing that's happening in the market and I'm with the guy. I definitely agree. So I'd love to get your thoughts because I think you're you're thinking on Tesla has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years I know a few years back to your more mixon. You've called it a cult stock gotten into some interaction with Ilan on twitter over the last I think probably eighteen to twelve months. You've you've definitely become a lot more bullish, which was great. Timing has the stock has reflected that as well. So I just love to hear sort of the evolution of thought process on tussle over the last couple of years. Great. Okay. When he came out I thought it was too hot. And I. I said people should sell it now I know that I had subsequent met. You must get a dinner party. And he belittled me he. Space said that if tried question, his analysis of the wall have giant solar field in Colorado we're all other energy's GonNa be provided from five years announcement five years I've seen it yet. He did pronounced me as a hologram basically. Didn't even exist. I thought it was one of the greatest put downs ever except I wish it weren't addressed. Thank. Eh former. Mathematicians Twenty, seven percent. But here's what's happened to me. I looked at his a stock. I didn't look at it. And I think that what happened is basically a a religious could it was a religious? Conversion. I went out to California my daughter had just driven. From Oregon she was living to Los Angeles. And she talked about charging talks about it was about the flatulence button instead you know data been driving. For twelve years. I never cared what a job. It's never been important. She had a beat up two, thousand, eight A. Ford fiesta she'd been driving she wasn't a corporate, but Tesla made her into Cooper's. So then I went out to sea venture mine one executive is so come bally's a company and another former CFO and they had all tesla's. and. My wife who is a complete corpus I mean a nut car person just loves it her favorite everything's ninety, four range over that. She has she said this is it a she drove it and she said this is it. Now we have not bought one yet because she's we're going. To be able to say listen Jim, you should buy because you live in some new. Jersey accuses go around car but when I was driving with the person who was retired was the CFO as you know what my daughter loves it, my wife loves it. It's so cool but they don't have the financials did naked so that I can recommend it to sixty. And he looked at me turn Amigos. GM naked race two billion dollars. Like. Religious, conversion. The conversion was right there because I knew rob. At, the balance sheet was not questioned. Admin. Panel table ever since we caught a lot of points I, continue to recommend it. I should have realized along the way that when Jay Leno told me Jim. Is the greatest car coming around one fifty. I should've just changed my mind but I hadn't been in the car rob other than. My friend, kwame picked me up to a little bit. And when you have a person who's never driven a car saying, this is like the greatest thing ever doesn't think of as a car and then you have the coordinate nut Lisa who says, this is the greatest thing ever and you have a CFO's very rigorous who said look they can raise the money I said, what am I doing? Why am I fighting the truth? Why am I fighting progress? So rob I surrendered and the best qualified made this year.

Has that right? The right pronounces it Tesla Tesla. Whatever? Caution was great. Thank you address this lesbian from. San Francisco. That's what I look like I'm here delicious coffee. We're going to have a long discussion about all kinds of things. been very nice to do this in the evening here and we've been chatting about all kinds of things, but we're GONNA. Get into it really quickly and talk about Tesla and SPACEX. We're GONNA. Talk about this year. We're going to talk about the boring company and anything else. allowed to talk about because people like to hear you talk, so let's start from the beginning about this year, okay? You've getting some very interesting interviews. You've gotten on twitter. Made some mistakes. What's okay? Let's talk about star with twitter. What would I have an obsession with twitter to in an addiction? How do you look at that with you? What is going on? What's going on? I mean aside from from what happens with you in twitter. Well, I. I tweet interesting things pretty much as they come to me and. You know probably not much of a filter I find it entertaining. Like all other people might find the center -taining. Sometimes, they do right and sometimes. Yeah, it's pretty random. Just at night. What are you at home? You're doing this, yeah? Mostly. Mostly at home, it's mostly I. Think I spent a lot less time on twitter than probably think maybe. Fifteen, ten fifteen minutes or something? Yeah, well, people pay attention when you do that. Yeah It's pretty interesting. What my like most people I'm most interested in I mean elected like some little tweet about of. That was it but it was like low case I black heart enemy. like everyone loved that one of those my most popular tweets all right. What about the things they didn't love. Are you under strict orders not to do that? Is that correct we will be? Will you have to change your twitter behavior? Not really not really under the recent settlement. You aren't you don't have to be careful about what you tweet if it's anime. That's one thing. But, it's just business you can't. Now I think it's mostly just if there's something that might cause a substantial movement in the stock during trading hours. That's about it. That's about it, so you can't do that without somebody getting mad. Yeah, okay well. That's a lot of people. WHO WOULD YOU CONSIDER IT? I'M GONNA get off in a second, but do you consider it a communications medium? How do you look at it? I mean a lot of us it that way I use it that way. Awfully. Donald trump uses it that way. How do you look at I? Look at it as a way to learn things. Stay sort of like kind of stay in touch with. What's happening? It's like it feels like dipping into the flow of consciousness of society That's what it feels like and then. It's like we can wear like a guest sized sometimes. Use Twitter to express. Myself and and that's a weird thing to do I suppose not too much. I mean it is and I. Think some of The Times is very funny other times. It's not so funny, is there? Okay all right all right, but when you do it in I'm not going to get the SEC because I I understand. You can't talk about that very much nothing to do with that although you did tweak them in one of your tweets, but at some point that will stop. You you made some remark lenders so many tweets that you do that so obnoxious it's it's hard to know there's an obnoxious tweeted. It was yes, it was oh. Don't do that. I forgot what you. WanNa. Look at your tackling on Halloween. But the ones that I think I do want to ask about is the press you pick up. You pick fights with the press over twitter, and then you have all your fans of which there are many. Are you aware of what they do once you start them off. Well, I think I mean say my my regard for the press has has dropped quite dramatically. Explain that place. there. The the amount of untruthful stuff that has written is unbelievable. Wall Street Journal Front page article about like the FBI is closing in. That is utterly false. That's absurd to print less. Such a falsehood on the front page of a major newspaper is outrageous. Why are they even journalists? Why do you understand you hit tension the mural people. But you understand the mood in this country around the press, and the dangers of attacking especially when the president is doing that in quite an aggressive enemy of the state and everything else it. It's disturbing when someone like us, a leader does that to our goes along with it, sure the press to be honest and truthful, okay and research their articles. And correct things properly when there are false all right which they don't do okay, but I'm asking if you understand where of course I do, and what do you think of that? Are you worried about unleashing dangerous cycle? That is a lot of the presser worried about I suggest. To heart and do better. What about with Donald? Trump does about enemy of the people. You look at it that way. No. How do you just you don't like falsehoods?.

"Maybe it's because of quarantine or maybe it's just my own tendencies. But I've spent way too much time on twitter lately. Which in my world means? It's been hard to ignore Elon. Musk inbetween tweets about his companies. Tesla and SPACEX you get tweets like cancel canceled culture and minecraft has amazing legs or more significantly on. May Eleventh saying he'd be defying the public health order that had closed one of his factories in California. He tweeted Tesla is restarting production today against Uva County rules. Sometimes he's just playing with people other times. You means it you know. He uses it as a performance. I think is that is what he's doing. That's Cara Swisher the dean of Tech Journalists. She started recode hosts the pivot podcast and she's covered Elon. Musk for a long time. And Cara does not suffer fools we. Yeah I was going to ask you this past weekend. He tweeted take the red pill which is take. The red pill is a line from the Matrix. It means basically wake up and see the truth guests. It's a line from a movie but it's also become popular with the alright alright has grabbed it but before that a lot of techies like that line too but I think he fully knows the all the implications. I think a lot of people get angry because he knows the implications and he still makes a joke anyway. The thing about Elon Musk's tweeting now. Is that it's part joke.

"elon musk" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis

"Maybe it's because of quarantine or maybe it's just my own tendencies. But I've spent way too much time on twitter lately. Which in my world means? It's been hard to ignore Elon. Musk inbetween tweets about his companies. Tesla and SPACEX you get tweets like cancel canceled culture and minecraft has amazing legs or more significantly on. May Eleventh saying he'd be defying the public health order that had closed one of his factories in California. He tweeted Tesla is restarting production today against Uva County rules. Sometimes he's just playing with people other times. You means it you know. He uses it as a performance. I think is that is what he's doing. That's Cara Swisher the dean of Tech Journalists. She started recode hosts the pivot podcast and she's covered Elon. Musk for a long time. And Cara does not suffer fools we. Yeah I was going to ask you this past weekend. He tweeted take the red pill which is take. The red pill is a line from the Matrix. It means basically wake up and see the truth guests. It's a line from a movie but it's also become popular with the alright alright has grabbed it but before that a lot of techies like that line too but I think he fully knows the all the implications. I think a lot of people get angry because he knows the implications and he still makes a joke anyway. The thing about Elon Musk's tweeting now. Is that it's part joke. Part performance art and part defiance of public health guidelines and it has real stakes his companies and their workers. I ask Herod help me understand what is going on in his brain. Let's separate to lose many Lonzo like let's talk about the many lawns there are. There is the entrepreneur and the risk taker and the creator of things and Tesla no matter what utility llamas.

"elon musk" Discussed on Deconstructed with Mehdi Hasan

"Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez talking about her ongoing beef with Elon Musk. How did the Tesla boss become this? Big Name this hero an icon to so many. How did he get so much? Fawning media coverage both in the tech world and beyond. How did this cult of personality arise? Jack Crosby is a writer and journalist. Who's been reporting on uncovering Elon? Musk for several years now. He's covered politics tech and labor issues for splinter rolling stone the Atlantic and many other publications in fact Jack recently wrote a piece for the worker on newsletter discourse blog headlined Elon. Musk made me a socialist. He joins me now from New York. Jack thanks for joining me on deconstructed. Thanks for having me. How did he lawn? Musk make you a socialist. So at the time this was sort of early on in my career as a journalist I was working as attack and transportation reporter and this was in a sort of two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen. Which for the most part. We're really good years for Elon. Musk there is a huge amount of focus on electric vehicles and autonomous cars and he was kind of on the forefront of both of those industries Had A lot of other really successful projects. Going on with SPACEX and things like that it was not however a great time for the digital media industry and I think sort of a combination of covering mosque for the most part. Doing very sort of flattering uncritical reporting on him. In order to you know because that was what was liked by Google Algorithms and our facebook fans and You know outlets. Were kind of doing whatever they could for traffic. At the time I think I saw his predatory approach to his own workers that was going largely unremarked by the press and I kind of saw that mirrored in my own kind of work environment At a at a digital media startup and I think that just sort of contributed I think of course with the twenty sixteen election of Donald Trump but All of these things covering an industry. That was very much sort of like an unrestrained level of capitalism kind of contributed to radicalizing my own personal politics so I want to back to the media coverage of Moskva moment before we do that. Just sticking with your piece in your piece also compare musk to trump to donald trump. Say that both billionaire snake oil salesman. How so so? He is a very gifted. Ceo in a lot of ways. The image that he presents to the world is as this sort of like Tony. Stark character is a genius inventor as someone who is going to save the world through science. And as as I'm sure most people covering him we'll tell you his his genius isn't particularly in engineering he. He's very good at hiring. Good engineers SPACEX has had a mixed record of how their rockets will work. But in general with the government contracts that they've fulfilled they've been relatively consistent Tesla vehicles are for the most part well engineered in well-designed vehicles that to do with Ilan differs based on who you ask I sort of came to the opinion that his real genius is a salesman similar to Donald Trump. He's very very good at projecting an image of himself in an image of the brand that he's selling to his fans and convincing them and that's what they want to buy into. And that's why you see such a strong reaction owes. Musk and trump have many many people that are convinced that what they are offering. The world is going to benefit them personally Musk has thousands and thousands and thousands of Primarily I would say that. His fans are primarily men. Who are you know? Sort of curious. Future forward Maybe a little nerdy kind of guys who are interested in these concepts of renewable energy of electric vehicles of space exploration and things like that. And they're convinced that musk is the one that's going to be able to deliver them deliver that for them and the founded dorm don't they jack especially online in the comment section on? Youtube and elsewhere. Yeah he has a very similar following to to trump into what you see in a lot of kind of very passionate online communities. Which is that any sort of criticism or attack on. Musk is treated as both a personal attack and a sort of reputation of things that must allegedly stands for. So if you write an article that says Elon. Musk is treating workers particularly well. And he's been union busting for years that's going to be perceived by his fans as you standing in the way of progress as you are you know. Why are you trying to disparage the one man who is going to save us? Who is working for a cleaner future for electric cars? They'RE GONNA they're gonNA love me off to the show goes out from this. You mentioned the union issue. One very he claims not to be very political but one very political position he has taken is anti union. He doesn't like organized labor. He's fought tooth and nail to prevent workers in his bay. Area Tesla plump from unionizing. Hasn't he yet he's. He's done this for years there. There have been a couple of sort of notable points in this. There was a a tesla employees in two thousand seventeen named Jose Moron Who wrote a public medium post detailing sort of the conditions in in one of the Tesla facilities? I believe it was the Fremont Facility Talking about mandatory overtime a workplace injuries and things like this musk's response was basically to claim that this guy was a plant by the united auto workers that was trying to organize it tesla and there was a sort of whole mini news cycle at the time where he was railing on like the. Uaw spies and he. He sent out a public email. That sort of compared him in a David and Goliath analogy where Tesla which at the time was one of the highest valued automakers in the country was David Arrayed against these forces arrayed against him and he's one of the men on the planet. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean I. I think he is not worth at. The time was not in the not in the gates are basis territory. But yeah he's he's a billionaire. Is it true? He wants promised his employees a coaster if they agreed not to union he he did must general strategy in dealing with adversity is to make outlandish promise And then sort of hope that everyone forgets about it by the time. The news cycle is ended so in in public that often comes with. He'll he'll make big promises about what Tesla cars are going to do. When his employees were expressing some discontent he sent out this e mail that was basically saying once Tesla becomes a profitable company. We're going to be able to do all these things that I've wanted to do for ages one of which was free frozen yogurt at a lot of the facilities and another was something he referred to as a tesla. Pod Roller which. I think it's safe to say I have not seen anything about that actually happening. I don't believe that Tesla currently has a pod roller coaster If they do I would be extremely the making the of sweeping sweeping promises. Exactly no fact check exactly and that's a lot of these things have just gone by wayside. the big the big thing in in two thousand seventeen of parliament's vehicles and musk was one of the first people that was really at the forefront promising. Our vehicles are going to have. There's some technical details level four and level five automation and things which basically means that they could drive in a variety of circumstances on assisted by a human driver and musk had a whole. You can't really call an ad campaign but sort of a marketing blitz where he was promising that by the end of two thousand seventeen tesla would be able to do across cross country coast to coast road trip in one of its vehicles with no with no human input and as we've seen now you know that that has not really happened. The limitations on autonomous cars are far far more than the experts were predicting well. Then the the inventors were predicting back in two thousand seventeen and these things have not really gone forward as he said they would and he gets away with it because the media let him get away with it. You yourself say. You spent years writing quote credulous pieces about his business and technology achievement. Lots OF PEOPLE. Right puff pieces about him. Those who don't get as you say attacked by his supporters. How much is the media to blame for the cult of Elon? Musk so I think. An enormous amount. At that time I will say that it does seem now to be changing and of course there you know. This is not a discount. There were reporters at national publications. I think I mentioned RIMAC earlier at Buzzfeed News and Mike Isaac at the Times was mostly covering Uber. Dana Hall who now writes for Bloomberg. I think these reporters were doing very good. Fact-based responsible journalism about mosque. And if you look at Dana Hall's mentions on twitter at any given time. She has hundreds of musk fan boys even though she's one of the most sort of even keeled reporters on him in the business must convoys attacking her all the time for being anti Tesla but at the time in this sort of digital media landscape for a lot of different reasons laudatory coverage of mosque was extremely widespread. And it wasn't just him. This was the thing that we saw People doing for facebook people doing google. There were there were whole outlets. You know who's WHO's ethos was in sort of positive. Press for the advance of of big technology and musk was one of the most interesting and sort of engaging figures in that world and so people got a lot of traffic off of posts. That were that we're highlighting the crazy weird ambitious things that he was he was doing. You mentioned the crazy weird stuff prior to this week's decision which has gone in his favor on reopening the tests and our plan he seemed to be melting down quote unquote. He was tweeting that I'm willing to be arrested. He was tweeting the other week. The Oh my company share prices too high. Is that all. Acta wonder because people like musk and trump and Boris Johnson. I sometimes wonder if the whole eccentric stick is just that stick distraction totally performance and fake. What do you think having covered? Musk for so many years. I think it's a bit of both has always been streak. He's always leaned into this image of being an centric billionaire. I think in recent years he really has perhaps gone a little bit too far. I don't know what has been going on with him personally. His personal life has certainly been chaotic and the decisions that he's made appear to have gotten him in real trouble most notably in the in the defamation case in countersuit involving when he called the cave diver who decided his plans to build a submarine to get the tie soccer team out of a cave. He called this British Cave. Diver a pedophile twitter. But he won that case interesting he got away with it. This is the classic thing with must and this week. He's gotten away with it again. Having defied the law reopened his plant. And now he's got the county retroactively approving. What he did is pretty dangerous isn't and they'll just immediate. Let's let him get him. Get Away with stuff politicians especially in California where he has a lot of clout. They basically saying this week. Almost can do it every once right and I think he's. He's also been enabled by his own board of directors for a long time because we saw another Bombastic sort of hard charging CEO. Travis Kalanick's who is an uber and twenty seventeen whose indiscretions eventually did end in him. Being sort of ousted from the pub. The company is public facing side. That hasn't happened to mosque because as you said he does continue to get away with it and he knows that he wields a tremendous amount of power over the communities that his his companies in his facilities operate in. And.

"But that's where we take ten minutes to get smarter of Tech Business Politics Presented by bank to be safe venture wisely. I'm Dan from Mac. Show presidential betting market in why this Thursday matters for pandemic impaired mergers the first Elon. Musk versus California so on Saturday. Tesla Motors filed suit against California's Alameda. County which has been blocking the electric car makers efforts to reopen its manufacturing facility in Fremont the basic back story California Governor Gavin Newsom last Thursday announced that manufacturing could resume in his state so long as certain social distancing safety guidelines were followed but Alameda County has decided to move more cautiously and specifically officials want their stay at home orders to run through the end of. May this raise the ire of Tesla boss? Elon Musk who has spent much of the past. Two months tweeting. About how lockdown orders draconian and who is now threatening to move both future manufacturing for Tesla and Tesla's headquarters out of California why it matters is threefold first tesla is the only automaker left in California so it takes off. There will be none to this. Case could become a high profile precursor to other large battles between businesses and local authorities over public health measures and three musk's threat to leave California entirely could presage. An era in which states compete for businesses based on covert regulations. Kind of like they've historically done on tax incentives and labor law the bottom line. No one likes picking a fight more than Elon. Musk but this is one of the few times. The his efforts could have consequences well beyond his company and his own reputation in twenty seconds. We'll go deeper with tech crunch transportation. Reporter Kirstin coursework but first this bridge bank knows the INS and outs of business and remains dedicated to providing financial solutions. To the risk. Takers the game changers. And the disrupters those committed to leveraging innovation to make the world a better place bridge bank has been dedicated to providing financial solutions to sponsor backed emerging technology and growth companies for nearly two decades through its national network of banking teams and offices bridge. Bank is a division of Western Lines Bank Bridge back be safe. Venture wisely joined by Tech Crunch Skelton Chorus. Let's start here with Elon. Musk's threats not just leave the county but to leave the entire state including headquarters in Palo Alto. How feasible is that in other words this from your perspective a threat. That actually has some teeth behind. Well this is all about public pressure. It is easily will but feasible to what end the company does have operations in Nevada. In New York. The company ended gigafactory in. Nevada is quite large and you could see a scenario where they could support moving it over but the cost in pain to do that would be extreme in also. I think we shouldn't be forgotten. Is that wall? There would be jobs that would occur in Nevada. As a result there would be substantial job losses in California the Public Relations Look. There isn't great. There would also be the retraining costs to some people might decide to move from California to Nevada. It's stayed over but a lot of people wouldn't which means you'd have to train. A brand new manufacturing workforce in Nevada or Texas wherever he wanted to move to correct exactly and this is a manufacturing facility. I don't know if you've ever seen the old new plan which is now the Tesla factory or had a chance to walk through it but you don't simply just pick up a large stamping machinery or all these robotics or assembly lines and then just quickly card them over. You would have to be done in the same time as they're still producing vehicles in Fremont because you don't just disassemble assembly line. You would stop all your production. It just doesn't quite make sense so you said the part about Pr. Let me ask about that from your perspective. What's the ballot? Is it just kind of continuing? What's Kinda been his twitter crusade against lockdowns and this is just him seeming at least to put some of his money whereas now this well. Here's the thing to remember about. I've been writing about Tesla for a decade now. He can seem on hinged on twitter but he absolutely knows what he's doing and he understands the power that he has on twitter so it can seem like as if he's benching or up a little bit too late at night in it's all part of a strategy and the strategy here is to bring as many eyeballs in ears to his specific problem which is wanting to reopen this factory. I understand why. He wants to reopen factory. Any manufacturer would want to reopen their facility right. They need to make their product and Tesla's case he's got back. Orders for cars has tesla from your perspective given a good explanation for how he will not just reopen the factory but how he would do it safely not end up in a situation like we've seen say with meat packing facilities were suddenly you have dozens if not hundreds of tesla workers sick and thus have to close it again plus possibly have death phones so on Saturdays when he threatened a lawsuit filed the lawsuit and then later that night they did issue a blog post in a lengthy thirty seven page. Report is go back to work playbook. I will say that they did go through this in China in that they have applied because they have a factory in Shanghai. They say that they are applying many what they learn in Shanghai. Xu the Fremont factory the part where I do a little bit of a head nod is that they never stopped delivering vehicles in the State of California and a number of my sources who worked for the company said. They didn't feel entirely safe all the time that there was a mix of the die. Hard Tesla employees who were so committed to the mission that they kind of ignored health concerns and social distancing and things like that and then there was a smaller group of people who wanted to have hand sanitizer in one bag masks on hand and none of that happened in or Bro Really. It was very based on reports from my sources vary chaotic in some parts. So if you were to take that you know is the Fremont factory going to be the same sort of situation. You say that in high that to the earlier thing you said about kind of what he does when he tweets strategic. But if you go back to some of his tweets on March sixth he you know he said. The Corona virus panic was dumb. He tweeted out some very questionable outright false understanding of what's happening with the virus and potential treatments. So do those things Mary in other words is the partially chaotic stuff. You've seen with the ongoing deliveries in California tied to the fact that it doesn't really seem again just from his twitter feed that he has taken this pandemic as seriously say public health officials. Have I think it's fair to say that he publicly has not treated it as seriously? I mean that's a completely fair assessment. The question is if he wants to reopen his operations than he might be forced to at least put in place the measures that will allow him to go back to work in the understands that the battery is a little different than delivery hubs spread throughout the state of California with manufacturing. There's also this headquarters in Palo Alto. Which technically isn't in Alameda County? Are People working there right now? Is the headquarters full or is this? He wants to get the manufacturing facility open but his executives are still work from home from what I know. Executives are mostly working from home. But I will say that one thing. That's interesting as well. The Palo Alto offices are technically the headquarters. He's been spending more time shifted a lot more personnel to Fremont in so it almost has become in a way a defacto headquarters. There's just been a lot more effort and her sanal put in that place. For example many of his comes people were oftentimes Fremont so. Hello does miss the office. Workers Engineering is right within the Fremont factory. A lot of it and not all of it and of course their stuff down in La in Hawthorne for it just a timing won a legal one. When should we expect there to be resolution one way or the other of the suit because again Alameda County is said they plan to probably open things up at the end of May which is a few weeks and Yulon suing to get it done earlier? When should we expect to see some sort of resolution from judge injunctive relief so this means that things should move fairly quickly in Alameda? County said that in a week or so they will look at the manufacturing component. So this is all GonNa go down. I would expect within the next few days certainly in one more note. The attorney filed the lawsuit. Is Alex. bureau this is must personal attorney and the attorney that was actually successful in the head case that we all remember from last year in so Alex. Spiro has proven to be pre convincing in successful in the courtroom. So we'll see how he does here of course tech crunch. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you my final two right after this bridge.

Bank is a division of Western Lions Bank Bridge back be safe venture wisely ever my final two and I up his November's presidential election which not too long ago seemed like the Consensus Mega Story of two thousand and twenty most polls right now Joe Biden leading donald trump including enough swing states to shift the balance of White House power but they seem to disagree as actually. This is Dan Ronan reports this morning. Biden is an underdog in casino sports books which actually take bets on the sort of thing now specifically they're paying out around eighty-three bucks per winning on trump versus one hundred and thirty five dollars for winning vets on Biden and realclearpolitics has an average of online betting sites which gives trump around an eight point. Lead what none of the betters. No though is the state of America's economy or of a corona virus vaccine by election day. And in this case that's kind of like not knowing if the game will be played on a seventy degree day with clear skies or in the middle of a frigid blizzard. But finally this Thursday could become a very important day for global mergers and acquisitions many of which have collapsed due to economic uncertainty surrounding the pandemic friend equity firm. The Carlyle Group is seeking to back out of a deal to buy a twenty percent stake in American Express. Global business travel basically arguing that the outbreak has so decimated the hospitality industry that is triggered. Something called an m. a. e. or material adverse effect which is a common clause in merger agreements. The thing is m. e. Clauses are often in the eyes of the beholder and so far there hasn't been a judicial ruling yet on if this pandemic and everything that surrounds it is illegally legitimate trigger but again Thursday. That could change when a judge hears arguments on this case and his ruling could set legal precedent for everyone else with deals in peril. And we're done big. Thanks for listening.

"With ways. Lawn my all just happened. In this time I turned into a squirrel. That's the thing I do 'cause that sounds like a man and I just picture because it's an audio only ask for some people. Have you hear that noise? A magic became a frog. Wow that's riveting riveting if I say so myself your face own stand do but I think nicest part about. You don't understand too because here's the thing that was going to say. Let's let's clarify some things because before I go into my science stuff about electric vehicles. I looked in a little bit to Tesla. Just wanted to make sure I knew some groundwork facts and these are some things I found out so tesla was actually created by two different people. Elon Musk was not part of this. Was Martin Eberhard and mark carpeting. Where the gay. They're fake does sound like fake names market number number. Dr Bernard there was a third person who was added and then Ilan. Musk came on as a venture capitalist. Oh Lord Oh he basically like in my mind I was like Oh Elon. Musk created and founded tesla and then they actually so allow. Musk in those first five people. Even though the three joined later they signed a deal allowed. Elon Musk and those other. To call themselves founders. So even though he wasn't technically a founder he wanted and I'm not blaming this on him because maybe those other people wanted that as well because he gave money he wanted to be able to be like. I'm a CO founder. Grimes knows all this ranking. Grimes isn't finding out. She's raising things. I also didn't know in January of this year. Tesla became the most valuable American automaker to ever exist. Yeah I we I mean I didn't. I knew that we didn't talk about it in that context but I knew it was the switches. Most profitable limit is not awful. Sorry valued world. It's the second most valuable bag next to next Toyota. So it just Powell and in the end of January of this year. So that's why I was confused because I'm like how are they never profitable? I guess there's stuff like how much research and development they have to do. And how because they don't have retailers like you can't go to like a car what you say shop. Where do you get a car? I'm so surprised. Yeah exactly 'cause they're like toge- so that so they have to spend so much on promotion and getting like their hope is obviously long-term once they get market saturation than the money starts rolling in but I think they every silk every Silicon Valley Story. But that story happens to me. I hear it all the time and I'm just like all these dudes walking around being like okay. Well well just your way. Oh it is. It's like it's wild. It's like if you're so. They made eighty six point. Five billion dollars in America. And I'm like if you can't be prompt that's crazy but I guess the whole point is they are having to do so much legwork to make the technology and to get the resources to do it and to put into marketing into all those kind of things so I don't understand business but there is a point where like you're making one hundred billion dollars and they think that the best crib for a on flux twelve number exactly I do think his crib is just going to be one of the cars going to have no railings. And it's just going to be like it's GonNa look like a doctor's chair and he's going to elevate about it or she or they also just like I'm not going to bail on the podcast. I just have to tech someone because I have an appointment only God to send a message while you helped me very digital appointment that I needed to know I do think that I do. Think that Tesla being the second like market market capitalization at the second most profitable or not profitable. Soy Valuable car company to meet was so surprising. Yeah every other company has also existed for like seven years ago. There's there's there hunter everywhere but I haven't seen as you know. Maybe I honestly don't know they're all over like la but like being in Toronto. Where are they? I don't know so those were only a couple of facts about Tesla but I wanted to talk a little bit about whether or not. Tesla is actually sustainable. Okay cool because this video we've been trying to think about making. Yeah until it's for this for my facts here. I've leaned heavily into an awesome channel on youtube called are changing climate. Like my favorite. So they cover all sorts of topics definitely check them out. I love it. It's mostly voice over with just like stock images that like essay. Hello so just some faxing. Spit out to kind of analyze whether or not. Tesla's are actually sustainable. So the impact of Tesla is sixty eight percent more emissions. What am I talking about the sorry? This is about the extraction process. We're talking about so. The Tesla gets on a roll. But there's a lot that happens before that so getting them it's resources it's actually worse for the environment in that process is sixty eight percent. Yes so because it's so energy intensive. They're trying to find rail rare metals. I think what they do. Is they dig giant holes. Like there's a mine in China where they're digging for these rare metals and they dumped toxic chemicals on it just again for the battery. Yeah so when they do that. For example only zero point two percent of what comes out of the ground is used but they basically destroying parts of the land right so it's a hugely problematic process. This is for the battery. This is this is for materials that are used mostly in the battery but get used in the cars. Well if I wrote here where they're you wonder. If there's any emeralds used them hello call your down from them. Roll Mine. Did you know his dad? Also kind tell you one thing just. His Dad had a baby with his stepdaughter who he knew the stepdaughter. Since she was four and that just isn't he also disenfranchise from his family? I was going to say he doesn't like he does not like but there's there's older fresno so sorry I was just trying to. That's where I'm feeling kind of scattered because I have to tax basically. Yeah those materials. Those rare metals are used in the battery headlights and onboard electronics. So crazy cool screen. Yeah and so yeah. It's basically that extraction process is extremely dirty and his knock green basically in any way it's producing sixty eight percent more emissions than an actual actual than a typical car would but also use gas and coal powered equipment for extraction so on top of destroying the environment and releasing emissions your. They're not using like electric materials to or like solar power materials to get these materials either. Because yes you have like huge factory pits and stuff not factory pits but open pits using Colin gas and burning the whole time but ultimately once the car is on the road. Obviously it's way born greeting even though it depends on where you are because you might be using energy anyway if you're plugging into a circuit that's not using. Renewable energy is using gasoline goal. Seeing a lot of them all over Los Angeles and California and learning about California's grit system. It's really it's quite green California's one of the best places you'd be having a Tesla and actually feeling like okay. I'm not I'm not using as many emissions into Ontario is extremely green to a lot of wind like energy so it is interesting to think about the two places we've sort of spent time recently. It wouldn't be SMART AVATARS. La If you've got a foreigner and you could feel sort of pat on the back okay. It's it is and ultimately they found that after eighteen months on the road and electric car actually compensates for all those things that it did when it's with tobacco that it becomes more green from that which is eighteen months non very long and neither are going to have a car for ten fifteen twenty years. That is going to be a lot better but it's still enough time to allow you to be like okay. It's not this magical thing. Yeah and here's still impacting. The environment like our phones and I like they're trying to find these rare metals that are needed in places there can exploit or destroy or whatever sack to what I was saying about the concept of maybe not owning a car. Like how do we culturally shifted so that we use public transport ridesharing apps like what do we that's ultimately what this videos discussion about? So a gas powered car has two times emissions over. Its lifetime but ultimately it's like you know one of the things that Tesla's many electric companies but tesla tries to recycle most of his batteries about seventy percent of its batteries get recycled which means I don't need to go mining from war and they're not making a new car. Ms Being reused. So there's you know what I mean like there's elements of even once they get it they can reuse it again later so many people are buying it has lime probably also have like Harari and also. Have you know what I mean? Yeah if you already have a vehicle. It's actually probably not better to get a new car unless you need right so ultimately should you get an electric vehicle if you're in the market for a car right now awesome and you can afford it. That's great but if you have a car that's not that old and you could still. You're not doing a service by creating a bigger demand for these things. There's still an impact on the climate on the environment from this. So don't just think it's a fix all if anything we should be it might minimize individual emissions but those are actually not often the biggest part of our problem right like we have to fight for legislation that will regulate companies and regulate countries and help to make us all actually oil companies early on tried to create those campaigns of like. What can you yourself to be more green to try and get the sort of like energy and momentum off their backs should always remember. It's like obviously do your best individually but it's really action together against corporations and getting politicians to lobby behind you so I think we can have a couple of extra minutes here to talk about some some more thoughts about Yulon after we've gone through these studies. Well that certainly didn't help so I do think again going back to my initial stance two years ago. Even I still think it's a noble cause like excluding him for example for car companies and brand new car companies like ten. I shouldn't say brand new car. Companies that focus exclusively on electric vehicles. I think that's a noble cause. I do think it's a good thing and I'm excited that culturally. We seem to be shifting toward that being the future but we also need to talk about on because that is the name of this podcast. It's Elon. Musk you know update or whatever and I actually am still. I feel a little bit like okay I. This is what I was worried about like. What I'm I'm a man with these with this history with Megalomania vibe just like again trying to swoop in and save the world and in fact the every way that he's acted I've felt in the past has made me skeptical of them that I can't believe we're sitting here and he's like saying that crown of cases are going to be zero by the end of April with his platform. I'm just frustrated because I don't want to be told you so but it's like frustrating to me when it's like it's like it's like.

"I mean I can't imagine saying that to a romantic partner on your wedding night of all things or ever but I also think it speaks to some of the stuff. We were talking about a little earlier about how he needs to constantly be in control. And what is that phrase if not you know. I'm in control and as the two of them are getting divorced. I'm GonNa Watch the exact phrasing so this is a paraphrase but you know she says something about not being happy in the relationship and he says something like if you were my employees. Yeah I would have fired you what that story indicates to me. One is not just his desire for control but also a misogynistic streak yeah. There's you know I'm trying to think about how to phrase this because there's certainly a streak of misogyny Nia among his fans It's something that especially women reporters who cover Elon. Musk counter a lot. I personally told that I must be quote unquote obsessed with them but there is this sort of culture that he comes from that is not especially women. Friendly like Silicon Valley of that period is not especially women friendly and it's still well not women friendly now so there is kind of a casual misogyny and a lot of the areas in which he's operating And like that's true of aerospace. That's true of cars. That's true of software These are all extremely dude turf places where dudes tended to defend their turf. So how exactly did things end between paypal and the other co-founders and Elon. Musk so Pay Pal goes public in two thousand two and after a couple of months is bought by Ebay and I think must get something like one hundred and sixty five million dollars out of this transaction the overall transaction is something like one point five billion okay. So what's the pay pal money. He does chew things first of all. He founds a rocket company. Space Exploration Technologies SPACEX. You found that in two thousand and two but the other thing that he does is he invests in this a car. Companies Company was making electric cars. He's the series investor Fester for Tesla Inc And that takes place in two thousand four and later Must becomes credited as a CO founder of Tesla after the break picks up speed.

"Lisboa Plateau deputy editor at the verge and reporter on the. Musk beat how did he long become the person he is today. Can you tell me a little bit about his childhood. Oh Yeah I could definitely tell you about his childhood. So he's he's born in South Africa his parents split. He stays with his dad after the divorce. His Dad by all accounts counts is not a great guy and so he has kind of this rough home life and he's not doing that well with his peers at school either. What do you mean by that at one point? He was beaten so badly by his schoolmates that he was hospitalized. I mean. He was bullied so he grows up in South Africa. I mean he now lives in the. US How did he end up there. I moved to Canada and then he moved to the US and in both cases it had to do with going to school. He went to college essentially and his family is actually actually Canadian right. I think his mother might be Canadian. Sorry I like plugging that in. Their people should know so i. He goes to Canada Canada and I think he's at Queen's University which is in Ontario and from there he moves on to the University of Pennsylvania. where I think. He got dual degrees in economics. Physics all right and at this point is he already thinking up businesses that he wants to Creator you know whereas whereas my net yeah I mean so. There's I mean the economics degree suggests to me that he's already thinking about business but there's also some anecdotes in leave ANZUS biography about him like hosting parties where he didn't necessarily drink but he sold people drink. Cups made a bunch of money that way so it seems like you know this is something that he's he's been thinking about from the jump so anyway he he leaves Penn in Nineteen ninety-five and gets accepted it into a PhD program at Stanford University in California in physics. But as he's going out there you may remember around this time. There's the internet boom and so he's in this program for. I think like two days like literally. Today that's before he drops out uh-huh decides to launch his first company which is called Zip to okay. What's too so it was sort of an early? The attempt to get newspapers online. Believe it or not but anyway This gets acquired by Compaq for something like three hundred million dollars. There's in nineteen ninety nine and with this money must goes on to co found x dot com an online financial service and a payment company. What exactly was launched vision for that company? It was one of the first online banks as far as I can tell. Musk wanted to challenge the banking industry he wanted to disrupt banking so this is an ATM. We're going to do is transformed traditional banking industry. I do not fit the picture of a banker. Raising fifty million dollars is a matter of making a series of phone calls and the money is there you know. It wasn't a a small scope type of deal that musk was working on. But what happens is x dot com winds the merging with infinity. which is the startup by guy? Peter Thiel you might hurt him anyway. conformity has a money. Transfer Service called. Pay Pal. They this is where there's some friction Because you know you on mosque really has this idea for an extensive banking service US and he. He wants x dot com to be something much bigger than that. And there's sort of a fight about branding because he wants the branding for pay pal to be. I pay pal brought to you by acts and pretty much everybody else is like people like and recognize. Pay Pal they don't know what acts is Let's just let's just make it pay pal so at this point. It must doesn't like the fact that that the company that he was working on the name is getting a raced. Yeah I mean basically. It's a sort of a question of scope right like do you want to focus on these online payments or do you want to do something much bigger and must get pushed out so that they can narrow the scope and focus on these online payments. And I from the former. CFO OF PAP- house at something like it would have killed the company if you had stayed on as CEO for six more months must got kicked out of pay pal. Essentially is what you're saying. I mean he was still on the board but yes he was he was fired as a CEO. How do you think that impacted him? I think that getting kicked out had a pay pal was a formative experience for him because it seems to speak to the way that he controls his other companies. There's a bunch of anecdotes of him. I'm talking about how much he doesn't like public companies. Because you can't really control things and you can't really have a long-term vision and I think that after his experience at pay pal it must decided okay like I need to be in charge of my own companies in such a way that I can't be removed like this again. How was Elon? Musk perceived at that point like who was he in the world of of business in the world of tech I think he was sort of perceived in the way that most executives are perceived. which is you know you're known within your own circle but you're not necessarily a household name so he is not the guy that we know today? No He's definitely not and you can see. There are some mm early interviews with him where people are talking to him. He's like doesn't have the same kind of media savvy he later develops and it's like seeing A Proto Yulon. Musk ask a lot of the stuff that we see later is already there But it hasn't quite developed. Do you have an example of of guests his media media clumsiness at the time I'm I'm thinking of a specific interview and I wish I could remember. There's one with him and his then wife and they're you know talking about how their life hasn't really been changed that much by this money except that they bought a nice car and its him showing off his car Which is called McLaren F one? It's a million dollars for a car. It's it's It's Oh yes yes I know exactly what interview you're talking about. This is actually a pretty famous interview. Where where he just seems like kind of I don't know he hasn't doesn't fully settled into his new life? He's a little bit awkward. He just seems like he's also beaming right. He's really proud of this car. He's thrilled thrilled out of his mind. Nine completely. It's actually pretty well but just three years ago. I was showering and the at the Y..

"So saying it believes that the situation will be resolved in coming weeks, or months, but it's been stockpiling equipment, and chips and everything as well. So it may have like a longevity. So a problem when these, these products run out, but I think the next stage will potentially be may be on this podcast is out. The China may come back with some sort of new sanction on news statement on new action is basically in retaliation to one of its biggest companies being victimized essentially by another government, we shall funny. The story closely and. Do get in touch. Do you use a hallway phone? If you've been following the story, what do you think about the whole situation pulled cast at Wyatt dot co dot U K onto another story. Elon Musk is doing a thing he's doing another thing is always doing thing. What's he doing this week? So what he may be doing this week is launching plans to start the space internet now program to that. I'm going to start with a little bit caveat here. So we were calling on Thursday may twenty three is planned that Elon Musk will launch sixty satellites to serve this constellation that will start delivering space intimate to earth? However, last week, there was ready to plough largest plant both counseled to. There's a good chance there might get comes tonight, in which case it actually hasn't happened yet, but it's going to happen anyway. So, basically what's going to happen is the. The. Spending this now it might not happen, exactly tonight. But we should know about the story anyway, because it's going to happen at some some point summerish, basically on Thursday today, SpaceX kickoff plans to launch the space internet race. If you like with the launch of sixty satellites aboard a folk nine rocket from Cape, Canaveral Florida, it goes to plan, which is this so called space internet. You're talking about imagine the internet, but it comes from space instead of coming from a root or like a mobile phone mast or something like that. So probably most people are listening internet through wired connections, that might be brought band that comes up for your building and from under the ground, or might be through a four g connection, which obviously a mobile mass is at some point connected to the wired, internet, what space internet wants to do is to do all of this earthly infrastructure, so Musk's plan. Cooled S-curves subtle incidents styling is he wants to make a huge. Constellation of twelve thousand satellites orbiting the F, and to between five hundred and twelve hundred kilometers. And the idea is, is that you can kind of get university global coverage of the internet, without having to build quite big and Boca infrastructure of iron to lay. Why is or Bill towers next to people, what about connecting people in rural, rural or hard to reach areas? What any doing sixty at the moment? Well, this is much bigger plan. So eventually, the idea is twelve thousand of the satellites, which is massive, as I said, at the top of the show, the right you only two thousand active satellites around, so you think about that. He's, he's talking about doing five five six times. What's already there? So there's some problems. We're going to get onto later but essentially ideas is low satellites up there, and it means that no matter where you are in the world. You'll be able to get coverage you'll be waiting for satellite passive your area because there will always be a satellite overhead and this isn't the first time. I've heard of a plan to be internet from space to cover the rest of the world. That isn't currently connected. This other companies in this game. Right. Right. So right now, they're actually nine companies are working on exactly this thing space internet..

"This is now the third week where you have been ready to go with a recap of this week in Eli on and then Alana's eland listen, I don't want to be too dramatic about it, but Elon Musk has kind of been ruining my life. The last several months. All right. But I would say this is the most. This is the only time when we've said, oh, we got a, we gotta hit pause in like start over because of the scale of the lonning. So Liz has already recorded this week and he lawn for the verge cast that were tossing and clock in the morning this morning, I'm on Pacific time. It's currently two o'clock. We're it's Thursday and like I cannot believe that I am already out of date and it has not even been twelve hours. What happened was I had this great thing about like labor unions and tesla in this NLRB board hearing what's been going on this week, and then the SEC was like, what's up we're filing charges. So the SEC is sued Elon Musk for securities fraud after he attempted to take the company private earlier this summer, longtime listeners know a recurring theme in this week in Ilan is that one should never tweet. And right now in the SEC complaint, we have some evidence for why not only because of the take private tweets that are the basis of the. Plaint. Those are pretty significant, but also because a bunch of the evidence cited in the complaint is Elon Musk's, shortsellers tweets. So for those of you who might not know shortsellers people who basically bet that a stock is going to decline. And those of you who've been watching Eline closely know that he has been saying all sorts of wild things about shortsellers. There are two that are cited in the complaint. One of them is from may short burn of the century coming soon. Flame should arrive just in time and another one in June. They have about three weeks before their short position explodes. Although obviously, there are plenty of other taunts for shortsellers to choose from anyway. The SEC just gave a press conference where they basically dragged Ilan. I called up a couple of corporate governance folks, but what what the SEC is seeking to do is remove Elon Musk from being the CEO or a board member of a public company. Any public company not just tesla the claim is that his tweet in particular about taking tesla, private. Four hundred twenty dollars share, quote funding secure was so reckless that not only should he removed as the CEO of tesla, but he should never serve in in one of those positions at a public company again, which is wild, correct. Listen, all of this is wild. I'm just gonna read you some choice quotes from the complaint in truth. And in fact, musk had not discussed much less confirmed key deal terms, including price with any potential funding source. And then they go on to say that the funding secured tweet was false and misleading and subsequent statements were false and misleading to and then I'm going to quote again, musk new or was reckless in not knowing that each of these statements was false and misleading because he did not have an adequate basis. In fact, for his assertions, musk knew that he had never discussed a going private transaction at four twenty a share with any potential funding source. He had done nothing to investigate whether it would be possible for all current investors to remain with tesla as a private company via special purpose fund and had not confirmed support of Tesla's investors for going. Transaction. That's a lot. Yeah, never tweet, I think so when the SEC says, we don't think you should be at a an officer in any public company ever again, is that the sort of thing like the SEC says that to a lot of people, but they don't really mean it by the time it gets trial. It's like, yeah, we just that's our opening position, but that's not really gonna go there or is this the thing that they don't really do? And this is like super serious. 'cause they're real mad. It's super serious because they're real mad. They filed mmediately. You gotta keep in mind..

"And like in fact, now is not editor in chief so that he doesn't have to make all the decisions about stuff and can like be interested in the idea. That he wants to do. We had to do things like build a copy desk, not physically that would be hilarious, but you know, institute procedures that made it harder to get everything up on the internet immediately, but that made it possible for the site to run no matter who was sitting at the editor in chief desk. I also I want to say something because I absolutely have to, and I'm aware that it's probably going to bring everyone mildly down, but there are two points I wanna make one is that when we talk about being a Boy Genius, it's worth noting that Elon Musk is forty, seven years old. I think that there is something to be said about how we talk about specifically men in tech pantley, white dudes, specifically white dudes, and it's very interesting how a forty seven year old man who tweets random things about, you know, setting stock price rounding up a stock price to four twenty because it's entertaining and making strange decisions and tweeting strange things. And again, accusing people of being pedophile. We treat that. It's kind of like, yeah, like boyish nature of Silicon Valley. When this man is again forty seven years old, and I also wanna make the point that you know the people have been talking a lot about the smoking, a blunt on podcast thing, and we just had. Shooting in Dallas of young man named Botham gene who was shot in his own home by police officer who is now claiming that she thought it was her apartment which, again is her claim and last night a FOX affiliate decided it would be a great idea. The publicized that there is a small amount of marijuana in his apartment, which one makes no difference to the fact that the young man was murdered by an off duty police officer who is again claiming that it was her apartment. It wasn't, but also this idea that Elon Musk smoking, a blunt on a podcast is like, oh, it's a concern for shareholders, but it's also like pretty entertaining. And let's look use it for gifts, but you know, for a young man was yet drug test their employees? Yes, yes. They guess their employees is and also, you know, this was grist for the mill for accusing essentially a dead man of perhaps being culpable in his own murder. But I just I think it's really important to say something about how in the specific way is how we talk about. In Moscow and how we talk about people who are not Elon Musk or non white people in general or not men. It's very different and bothersome, it is extremely weird. Getting back to what Matt was talking about earlier in terms of like companies that scale that we're talking about, someone who even in the most conservative analysis is responsible for the being of a lot of employees as if like it is just a celebrity thing, and there is no actual consequences for the actions. And this is just a show we're all watching. I think that it is healthier to talk about Elon Musk that way than to talk about Donald Trump that way. But there's a weird cognitive incidents in which Texas or simultaneously the people who are going to save the American economy and the thing that we should. We should all be teaching our children to code. We should be teaching them to think like entrepreneurs, you know, because that's the real leading edge and treating the people who actually do hold those roles as if they have no responsibility and just free to do what they like because they're. Talents are what is keeping me economy afloat, much more than their actual like work ethic or professional value or anything like that. That said. This is a function of the culture that has been built. I don't know that it actually does matter all that much if you on Musk's personally more Suber individual that says something about the extent to which people who are like Silicon Valley CEO's are swat in layers of privileged and forgiveness and resources that most human beings don't have, but I'm not sure if he'll on Musk's a person who's responsible for others who retreating if he isn't or feel on musk, actually isn't that responsible for others? Both of those are super weird. Indeed, as a bureaucratic rationalist could've note that we've got to wrap this one up here, but thanks for listening. Everybody.

"But like when, you know for a fact that there is some much better way to do them that is already being done and that what could really be helpful would be for some diligent, careful people to like learn about that. Like let the diligent careful people do it right, and go do something else because there's this tough line to walk with like you have a vision for a new kind of car that seems successful, but also there's the logistical problem of building it like like that's hard man like. That's like, that's the hard stuff. So don't pile on like unrelated unnecessary, hard problems like that just seems crazy. And you just genuinely don't see anybody else acting like that, right. It's interesting, but I feel as if there's something to be said that that craziness and the fact that no one else is doing it is actually part of Elon Musk and therefore Tesla's appeal like their stock price has gone up somewhat over the last week or so. And there are many people who are big fans of this purely because we don't see it. You know, purely because you know, I've seen ten cook, speak, and you know, it's not riveting. But you know, it's the kind of thing that you're like, oh, you know, he runs a company, Elon Musk going on a podcast and smoking a blunt, and again, not inhaling like that's something you do not see. And I think that there is this notion that we have where something being different. Is interesting and it just, you know, that's just how people work. But I also think that that in itself, at this point, Elon Musk could not become Tim cook. That is not going to happen because part of what Elon Musk is best at is being Elon Musk. Then I think that that's an interesting challenge to be so inherently linked, not with just a company, but with a style of doing things that this is kind of baked in now and there's nothing really the board can do about it. There's nothing really people around him can do about it because it both works and doesn't work. And I think that that's a fascinating challenge. I am not an organizational sociologist, but I think that, oh, I mean, I'm not organizational sociologist, but I realized that this is in fact another ration- of the max paper thing that that Nike coming back to you on Friday weeds about charismatic, bureaucratic leadership, like it's not wholly implausible for an. Institution that is built around a charismatic leader to transition to bureaucratic leadership. It is a difficult problem and this is, you know, I know that there are people who have spent their careers working on this and who could probably talk about some trends of organizations that successfully make that leap. But it is very obvious that it requires a willingness to not be a as medical organization anymore, right? Like you need to have an understanding collectively that you want view organization to continue to persist after the person who started it. No longer is there or no longer exists or something like that, and that there's a certain amount of kind of conscious culture building that needs to happen and also a greater tolerance for the things that are going to make it less efficient for that person to get what they want because what they want is not what the company is there to serve anymore. I don't know that it is fully baked into the cake that tesla cannot survive without Elon Musk. I think that we have seen. Look, it would have been very easy for apple when it was rebuilt under, you know, the return of Steve Jobs to be a Steve Jobs Centric enterprise, maybe a little bit less easy because it had existed as a company without him before, but they're really work questions, went him cooked took over for jobs of lake weather. Apple could continue in the way it has and wilder questions about whether he's been as good. There hasn't been like, oh, apple is dead now because apple raised Steve Jobs. So it's possible, but it's difficult and it requires accepting that you're gonna piss off the person at the heart of the organization. I mean, like as reclined is not Elon Musk at all. One of the key differences between as rainy Lon musk is that when you guys started a website as RA was perfectly willing to not be the person making all the decisions..

"You really not supposed to lie about the financial situation of a publicly traded company and to say, I, it looks like he's going to get not into any major, major legal trouble with the SEC. But like if ding has not been secured for your move to take your company private you, but really not supposed to say that it has been and he does benefit a little bit. You know, sometimes Trump will tweet things and you'll be like if another politician had done that, geo, but like with Trump a little baked into the cake, musk has like said enough loopy stuff that people don't take it too seriously, but he. Puts them in this exquisitely delicate position where like just shutting up and doing your job is not an option now, but his efficacy as a like, I make you believe in this seems to be headed downhill. Something else that's important to note is that there is a board of directors that is supposed to kind of keep Elon Musk in check. The issue with tesla is that musk is the largest shareholder the chairman of the board, and obviously the most famous person involved with tesla. His brother is still a director, eight years after the company went public, even though his brother Kimball is a food entrepreneur, and in general, every effort by the board to try and do things like split the CEO in Sherman role and adopt proxy access, which would mean that shareholders could propose their own board candidates hasn't really worked and like there's been talk about appointing a chief operating officer that hasn't really worked, we'll win. It hasn't really work. Worked lake, the board has considered and rejected. Yes, because if the board were parent and Elon Musk were teenager, the board would be the kind of parent who says it's totally cool. If you drink at home as long as you don't drive afterwards, which is a type of parenting, but maybe not the ideal type of parenting for this particular example, I mean, or maybe it is because as Matt said, like tesla knows it as a public company, it's going to need an ongoing public performance. And like since musk is so closely tied to tesla as an identity, jettisoning musk would really raise questions about, okay, so like what are we investing in any way? But this is where I wanna talk about the head butting incident because in a world where Elon Musk Joe's head down and says, okay, I understand that tesla isn't really about me. It's about the car. I am not super confident that that world actually results in more cars getting on the road. You know, when we talk about the head ends at this was something that happened. A while back, but just kind of came out recently that must visited a factory and was observing cars rolling down the assembly line and got really upset at a safety sensor feature that stopped the assembly line when somebody got too close and it was like, you know, this is slowing down production. He was told, no, this is a safety issue. Can't you know there's going to be danger of someone's too close to it, and then must went and headbutted one of the cars on the assembly line to demonstrate that it wouldn't be a problem. If somebody ran into a car that was moving on the assembly line that like this safety issue was overblown, which is like, obviously both very eccentric thing for a human being to do and weird thing to do to one of your products, especially when you have production issues where supply meeting demand like, and also there would be risks to the car. There also win. Your product is known for having safety issues right sample with the summoned feature, which musk advertised in two thousand sixteen would allow you to be in New York and say, like. I would like my car to come to me and drive itself from Los Angeles and musk was like, it should work anywhere connected by land and not black by borders. This'll be great. This is a great idea. It has not been great and has resulted in so far like no major injuries or anything, but it hasn't worked quite as well as people have have ho..

"Hundred twenty dollars funding feel you have to say four twenty though you got a role with the vibe the tweet 'cause it was definitely like a weed reference, right? We'll yeah, right. Yeah, I'm gonna get into the weird Suryadi of his tweet. So basically Lon Musk's suggesting that he might take his company, tesla, private at four hundred twenty dollars share Tessa. Trading now ended in thirty dollars a share on NASDAQ and the funding that he's referring to the tweet according to the New York Times would come in part from an arrangement. He might strike with the Saudi government just normal stashes normal stuff that no one basically, but you'll musk knew about Intel alone must started tweeting about potentially taking his company private, taking his own corporate board by surprise and taking federal regular. Tres by surprise. He sort of created a mess. I'm gonna read one a read a bit of one story from the New York Times. The headline is, tesla directors do damage control after Elon Musk tweets. That's the name of our podcast. Hey, well, that's, I mean, that's how you end must ended up back in front of us again this week. So the time story reads, members of Tesla's board are scrambling to control chief executive who some directors think is out of control, and it goes on musk has continued to post messages on Twitter publicly, plotting the company's strategy. And in some cases, making a surgeons of dubious accuracy that is only added to the chaos and golfing struggling company. Tesla's board members are also racing to unoccupied themselves from the possible fallout from Mr. Musk's public statements. I love the phrase making a surgeons of dubious. That's like rich people code for lying. We'd how much media is coming up with you from his mom always involve at least one adverb and three words that are longer than ten fashions of dubious. Elon Musk is strange to me. He's a very dramatic man. He is a dictator Twitter now, which is unfortunate. I think it's kinda funny, but it's definitely unfortunate for him. Yeah, it undermines him a lot of ways, but it's also here's what I want to talk about with you. Elon Musk to my mind is a strange figure. He's not. He's not Steve Jobs, right? He's not Mark Zuckerberg, he's not a tech figure who you can sit of simplistically associate with the product that we all recognize sucker. The reason we talk about Zuckerberg is because Coburg is the CEO and founder of Facebook. We all know what Facebook is, and we all use Facebook same with St. the late Steve Jobs, right? Like, you know what? An iphone is. Great. That's your sort of American cultural totem for understanding why you're supposed to give a shit about Steve Jobs. Elon Musk is not that if I'm somewhere he's basically a fought leader. Like if I have to summarize his actual corporate footprint, Elon Musk is a guy who wants to go to space and who is drilling tunnels under Los Angeles, and he sells flame throwers as merch in his web store. He's really into hyperloop and he's. And then he like markets electric cars to Republican homeowners. Yeah, he's definitely like he's selling ideas more than products. Are weird products. Products are weird projects. I think that people have a really strong emotional connection to the idea of space exploration. And for a lot of his fans, he represents the like great South African creep hope for. For like the future of space exploration. I think that space, I think I think that space x more than anything else has sort of cemented his reputation or like because he is a crazy fan base like it. That's what's so weird to me. It's like the amount of passionate support that this strange is he a billionaire strange, extremely rich guy has managed to gather around himself is really weird. And yeah, I think it's probably connected to just the idea that he represents this like possible libertarian utopia on Mars that people are really into right now. I think it was. The space is half of it. I definitely think that the just we're going to space part is essential, but I think you're right. The second. I think the crucial part him having the sort of fandom he does is that it's a desire to go to space coupled with a very like bootstraps fought leader vibe that Elon Musk seems to be working with all the time and seems to have fashioned into being his personal narrative..

"We love getting your feedback and ideas. So please do podcast out wide Cody k with any thoughts that you have on anything that we discuss on this week show or any of the shows and still going to try this, send us something that you learned this we, we haven't had any yet. So if you have if you had, if you have learned something and I bet someone out there has do let us know what it is at what it coach k. and we'll read out the best facts into Mbai pocus listener each and every each and every week. Upon from if you don't someone in which case l. stop asking first story this week is about some guy. The people seem to be talking about a lot Ilan mousse cake. Most alone. What's happened, Vicky. Elvis has been opening his mouth again or should I say, typing on his keyboard taking to Twitter, his medium of choice once again, to get himself into a big mess. So what happened as you probably remember, one of the biggest news stories of the past few weeks we spoke about it on the cast last week has been the tight 'have rescue the twelve young tiebreakers and football coach who was stranded in a tie cave unable to get out when it's flooded that been there for a couple of weeks and after an international rescue effort, they will all miraculously brought to safety. Now, why? While the team will working do this Elon Musk step forward and started building a mini submarine of rugged pots that he thought might be able to help in the rescue attempts. He was pretty public about work. He tweeted photos videos and things like that in the end, the submarine wasn't used and the cave Davis managed to get everyone out. And that should be we should be finishing. Yeah, if only the story could end there, you know, but this is alone. So what happened next in an interview after the rescue, one of the rescuers named Vernon UN's with was pretty outspoken in his criticism of Elon Musk's submarine, which another at the rescue had also or said, was not practical for the mission. It just wasn't really appropriate for the situation. UN's with said that the sub was just a PR stunt and that it had no hope of working. And he said that Elon Musk can stick his submarine wear. It hurts. So you're, you're musk, someone's thrown some shade at you, but it's okay, you're, you're bigger than that. You can just let them have their moment, but realize that you'll still be on musk. You'll still billionaires even if you don't want people calling you on, it's fine, right? So just stop that. Ilan could probably use a friend let you James because musk ever fragile ego. Took to Twitter to denounce Unsworth. Remember this is one of the hair rose one of the rescuers of the boys. And he claimed again that his submarine could've saved the boys and he basically just seemed incredibly bitter that he sort of missed this opportunity to swoop in and be the savior of the story. But then to make matters worse and somewhat unbelievably, he called UN's with a Pedo guy with absolutely no evidence. This is a completely baseless not even accusation. It's one hundred percent force. Yeah, he had no reason to say this. He basically accused him of being a paedophile. So basically he said he would make a video to prove that his submarine actually would work in the cave and then fully with, sorry, pita guy, but you really did ask for it. And then when someone said, you know, hey alone, maybe that's a bit far. He doubled down and said bet. Yes, line dollar. It's true. Good. Lou nice. I mean, as we kind of went through that, I'm sure you're listening when we bought it up this. Could have stopped it anymore, but it just kept on escalating. There is no need for musk to be using this kind of language or even getting involved in these kinds of discussions. Yeah, he does time and time again, it's all a bit city, isn't it? I mean, someone should just take away his Twitter account. I think, but anyway, after a couple of days and a low of criticism, he gave an apology of sorts on Twitter, of course, which we took over the cat for kiss..
