Elon Musk is the most likable of the big time crony capitalists but he is absolutely a crony capitalist. Looks like the crony prince has charmed another president.
(From The Hill)
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will join an advisory team for President-elect Donald Trump, Trump’s transition office announced Wednesday.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi will also join the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum.
Saying what we said above it probably is wise to bring these folks into the fold a bit. Give them a little something and keep lines of communication open. We just fear that taxpayer dollars, upon which Musk has built his empire, will keep flowing at the same rate (or more) as under Obama to connected corporations. This is a real concern for this website.
