I posted this in the Psychology section because here I don't want to discuss a car's technological features or a business' profitability, but more of the pressures of being a CEO and telling one too many lies while leading the public on a fantastic dream journey into the future: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/16/business/elon-musk-interview-tesla.html This interview seemingly caused a 7% drop in TSLA's price. This is a very candid look into the mind of Elon Musk, the dreamer, the leader, and the fraud. He is the 21st century's PT Barnum, or if you want an even better analogy, the Match King, Ivar Krueger: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivar_Kreuger Ivar is an excellent example that you can build a business empire (some of it still exists even today), some part of it can be even profitable, but overall the whole thing is still a giant fraud. Time will prove if this analogy is correct or not, but in the main time it looks like the pressure is getting on Elon's nerves. As a good narcissist, he doesn't acknowledge mistakes or shows regrets about certain tweets. He even offers his position to anybody who could do it better. And of course someone else should be blamed, for example those pesky short sellers. According to Elon, this year was an Annus Horribilis (all of it was caused by him) and more pain is to come. Call me stupid but good CEOs surround themselves with smart people AND listen to what they say. The runaway train of tesla has been caused by King Elon and the Tesla BoDs inability to control him.

Dunno. Bad feelings correlate to bad events, so maybe real problem is getting carried away in what I sign up for,” which he later described as a “ticket to hell.”"
