Elon Musk has essentially become America’s voice of reason for people with common sense. He had a very frank message regarding the U.S. economy, which he said is poised to dwarf China’s soon, and he blames it on one thing.  America doesn’t know who their real enemies are, and the incessant infighting in this country will put us in China’s rear-view mirror. 

Here are some of his comments on the podcast “All-In.”

“What we’re going to see with China, for the first time that anyone can remember who is alive, is an economy that is twice the size of the U.S., possibly three times the size of the U.S., and it’s going to be very weird living in that world. So, we better stop the infighting in the U.S. and stop punching ourselves in the face. There’s way too much of America punching itself in the damn face; it’s just dumb, and think about, hey, ‘We gotta be competitive here.”

The economic scoreboard shows the U.S. GDP was roughly sitting at $23 billion last year.  China’s, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, had an economic output of just over $17 trillion. 

The best part of Musk’s appearance was his answer to the question of how businesses should be dealing with politics in the workplace that is all the rage right now.

“The point of a company is to produce useful products and services for your fellow human beings. It is not some political gathering place.”
