    At yesterday Tesla Annual Shareholder’s Meeting:

    A shareholder asked Must if SpaceX plans to go public.

    Musk Replied: “Regarding SpaceX going public: Iā€™m trying to build a city on Mars…I think it would not be super-loved by the public markets. Iā€™d expect with SpaceX…that we will probably go public once we have regular flights to Mars.”

    Lol…Musk makes a good point…that would make for an entertaining Road Show Musk having to explain to Wall Street IPO Market Makers about his plans for a Mars city.

    Just finished the audible version.
    Good book.

    Nice to see how much Tesla and SpaceX build in house, giving them a competitive advantage.

    Good to see an American CEO actually earn his pay.

      Yes. It would indeed be a New Age For Humanity, if all the rich on this pale blue dot, used their resources for doing good– instead of just generating as much money as possible, as quickly as possible.

      1. Mike777 says:

        I’m always shocked to see “rich” people acting like terrified little girls putting all their money into bonds, and bitching about their taxes, and thinking they are the “wealth creators”, where all they really do is just Sit On It.

        1. Mike777 says:

          Bitching about taxes and Low Interest Rates.

          The real money is in Building Companies, but not if you’re a Pussy.
