    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    One huge positive out of all this. We may soon never have to hear the phrase "short squeeze" again!

    Robots Will Soon Do Your Taxes. Bye-Bye, Accounting Jobs I've been doing my own taxes form some years using Intuit's TurboTax, so this transition has to have already begun.

    When will we have a Basic Minimum Income?

    "Industrial Revolution Comparisons Aren't Comforting" “Why should it be different this time?” That’s the most common response I hear when I raise concerns about automation and the future of jobs, and it’s a pretty simple rejoinder. The Western world managed the shift out of agricultural jobs...

    New UBI experiment in Kenya paying 6,000 over 12 years at 1/2 the local wages. There is a significant difference between short-term experiments in UBI and long-term ones. Hopefully, projects like this one will show a more accurate picture of the mindset of recipients who are receiving UBI...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2014

    The only thing changed for me is that I'm even more certain that Tesla is changing the auto industry as much or more than Apple did in cell phones.

    Gas Pump in Garage

    What if you could get a gas pump for the garage (with magically no fumes) that filled the car every night at 10 cents a gallon, but the catch is that it comes only with a Mercedes S-class sedan. BTW, has anyone calculated the equivalent cost per gallon?

    Self-Driving Car: Is it a big deal?

    I predicted autopilot. However, the self-driving bit that will be there next year blew me away! The car will be capable of parking itself in the garage and come out to wait by the front door in the morning! Now admittedly that is not all that useful. Especially since the car can't plug...

    Self-Driving Car: Is it a big deal?

    I agree completely X-RAY. Autonomous vehicles are INEVITABLE. They will be far safer, cheaper, and easier than current modes. Just imagine the increase in technological unemployment. Who will lose their jobs? Taxi drivers, truck drivers, delivery drivers, security guards, etc. etc. etc...
