Business Insider headline: Wonder why Elon Musk is lashing out about recession risks and work from home? Just look under the hood at Tesla.
Don’t be fooled by the shiny objects Elon Musk keeps throwing into the ether. Whether it’s his aggressive stance against working from home, his proclamations that the US economy is in a recession, or the will-he-or-won’t-he drama surrounding his acquisition of Twitter, it’s all just misdirection by a magician.
When Elon gets anxious enough to act out, it’s because something is deeply wrong at Tesla. He did it back in 2018, firing off his “funding secured” securities-violation tweet as the company was on the verge of bankruptcy. And he’s almost certainly doing it now, yammering on about Twitter bots and “raining money” as his company’s competition closes in and the China market — where Tesla derives the lion’s share of its profits — crumbles. If there’s anything that’s giving Elon Musk a “super bad feeling” right now, it’s the threat to his vast personal wealth.
