Musk 2020

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41524220

>Musk: The Tesla team has done this for many smaller islands around the world, but there is no scalability limit, so it can be done for Puerto Rico too.

>PR Gov: Let's talk. Do you want to show the world the power and scalability of your #TeslaTechnologies? PR could be that flagship project.

Please let Musk beat Zucc in 2020!

I bet Musk can give away that sit for free and Tesla's shares will get even higher. The guy cannot do wrong, he is like a Capitalist Jesus. If he would sacrifice babies to Satan people would still love him. Except for that guy on /high/ that says Elon Musk is a satanic android.

Man whats scary is that his companies are so financially intertwined that they can fall like a deck of cards if something goes wrong with one of them. He really doesn't have as competent of corporate lawyers as say google, which is preparing for such a contingency.

yeah i think of it like a geometric angle. say you are shooting a target and adjust the angle of you shot by only .1 degrees. may be seemingly insignificant at close range, but stretch it out hundreds or thousands of feet and you see a massive difference based on tiny initial changes.

I checked into SpaceX, looks like they're doing business this year with Iridium this year launching around 80 NEXT satellites into orbit. Should come out ahead unless their business plan is completely flawed. Of course I'd imagine these ventures are difficult to break into and maintain in the first place.

While it's true that Musk's projects are a bit quakey (in both the normal and bunnyhopping strafing rocketjumping sense), you gotta keep in mind that Musk is specifically jumping in fields no other company dares to touch - right now.

When all other companies jump in on environmentally friendly cars, fully automated production and commercial spaceflight, Musk is already years ahead of the rest.

Or at least, that's what he's counting on. Biting nails today, sitting comfy tomorrow. Of course, as the current student loans crisis shows - this doesn't always pay off. Big chance you'll be flipping burgers for the rest of your life.

amazon was unprofitable for like 10 years. it's not all about net profit. cash flows are far more important, especially for a younger company.

but being the super business sleuth i'm sure you already knew that.

While Musk wants to power Puerto Rico, Zucc wants to go on VR tours of the devastation with his wife.

Goes to show that profit isn't the driving force in innovation, right?

I'm sure if he was focused on profit he'd be making plenty.

He's playing the long game. Short-term profit is for idiots and crooks. The tech and industry he's building up will fuel massive, record-breaking profit and wealth for a very long time.

He probably didn't even know Puerto Rico was his own territory until someone explained it to him after the hurricane hit. Maybe that's why the subject annoys him so much, he didn't sign up for this much responsibility.

At this point I half expect Trump to grant Puerto Rico their independence via Twitter just so people can't bother him about it anymore.

Trump just referred to the governor of the US Virign Islands as the "president" of the islands, so he apparently really doesn't think of US territories as his responsibility.

Has a colony ever achieved independence because the colonizers just straight up literally forgot that they owned it? This might be a historical first.
