About "Tesla's Future"
Elon Musk is the mastermind behind the highly successful business Tesla. He is ranked the 21st most influential person in the world (Forbes) and has founded and co-founded some of the most lucrative and innovative businesses in recent history. Tesla is his main creation, but is also creator/co-creator of Paypal, SpaceX, Neuralink and more.
But Elon has had a rough couple of weeks. The larger-than-life CEO has come under investigation by the SEC, retracted his teasing tweet about taking Tesla private, faced scrutiny over his ability to serve as Tesla’s CEO, and had an interesting podcast interview. Is Tesla’s mad hatter an asset or a liability? You decide in this week’s extemp release.
This week’s first round provides an overview of the biggest stories this week, some dealing with the largest personas and reputations in America. Other topics include economic questions about security, high-profile retirements, and tariffs, the 2918 U.S. midterm elections, a section about human rights concerns, and a finals section about the interesting trends and questions of today.
