Musk has a knack for disrupting entire industries. He may just have started toppling another one, arguably just as prime for toppling as oil: the Wall Street bankers, brokers, and their sidekicks (rating agencies, analysts, etc). If this going private transaction sails through, it may inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs that shun the greedy manipulations and rent seeking of Wall Street and go directly to individuals, mostly wealthy and connected, but also directly to the "little guys", without charging fees and commissions. Really, in the Internet age of interconnection and transparency and information, does Wall Street continue to provide a service commensurate with the huge salaries they command? The times they are a-changing.
