Amazing story and Musk is certainly a visionary.

However, Tesla is now valued at absurd levels. It has a market cap of 780 billion while Toyota's cap is around 210 billion.

Like- Elon Musk is a fan of Iain Banks Culture series and is developing a BMI like the neural mesh in the series.

Dislike- He didn't actually found Tesla, just bought it out and got his start by his parent's blood emerald business in Zambia.

But it is the workers who do all the work. Why does he get all the money?

With an average Teslasalary being around 79k and SpaceX around 68k, I don't think that he is getting "all" the money. I would attribute this well-deserved position to the initial bet and investment into the developing internet technologies back in 2000s and that compounding. He also got lucky in the early stages on SpaceX and has known how to manage his companies well.

Congrats to the future emperor of mankind.

The mirror might be telling you the same thing.
