Musk Goes After Government Planning

Musk said of the Democrats’ spending bill, “It does not make sense to take the job of capital allocation away from people who have demonstrated great skill in capital allocation, and give it to an entity that has demonstrated very poor skill in capital allocation, which is the government.”

Musk added, “Government is simply the biggest corporation, with the monopoly on violence.”

Musk explained earlier at the event that the Senate should not pass the Build Back Better Act.

“I would say can this bill, don’t pass it. That’s my recommendation,” argued Musk. “If this bill happens or doesn’t happen, we don’t think about it at all really. Honestly it might be better if the bill doesn’t pass.”

Musk offered his thoughts on other topics as well.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Musk also disapproving of President Joe Biden’s China approach.

“There are a lot of people in the government in China who kind of grew up … with China being a small economy and maybe who feel like China was pushed around a lot,” Musk said.

He added, “They haven’t fully appreciated the fact that China really is going to be the big kid on the block.”

Musk, the owner of the electric vehicle company Tesla, also said that the federal government supporting the electric vehicle industry by increasing the electric vehicle tax credit from $7,500 to $12,500 and also constructing charging stations across America is not needed.

“Do we need support for gas stations? We don’t,” Musk said. “Delete it.”
