  • I get less than that a month on disability. A MONTH. In early 2000's I made that much in less than a week. Elon has it going on but is THAT much wealth necessary for any one individual? With the wealth disparity as wide as it is globally it's disgusting really. Wealthiest 8 people in the world have as much wealth as the bottom 4 billion. Let THAT sink in.

  • Actually no he doesn't 'earn' that every second, wealth and earnings are not the same thing. Musk does not take a salary and his gain in worth in the last year is almost entirely as a result of the Tesla share price and his holdings in Tesla. While on paper that makes him one of the richest man in the world, in terms of cash in the bank and other liquid assets he almost certainly isn't even close (he says that himself). Even if he was to sell his share holding in Tesla, in his position as CEO he would have to make a public announcement of this which would almost certainly trigger a crash in the share price reducing his realised weath considerably, albeit it would still be an obscene amount on money.
