“So, no, not “billions and billions of gavernment subsidies”.”
Where did Musk get all that money?? Tesla electric car subsidies, over $4 billion worth and counting.
I thought Tesla was not even making money yet, or barely so. (IIRC, Musk said Tesla would turn profitable in 2018?)
Can it be documented (by reputable sources!) that Musk is pulling money from Tesla to put into SpaceX?
I'm surprised that a coder doesn't remember that Musk was the founder of PayPal. That's where his first fortune came from.
