    Thanks for posting this. I will try to record it if I can. The DVR hasn't been used in a while though... no guarantees that I can share it later.

    It was very underwhelming. The Tesla portion was tiny.

    Pretty short. Nothing particularly new. Probably recorded back in October or so.

    According to the recent news from Forbes, there are many former billionaries running around now.

    From all of the reports, I think Elon maxed out around $300 to $500 million. There is no telling what he is worth now. He mentioned during the town hall that he is very illiquid in his investments. So he likely has a bunch invested in SpaceX, SolarCity and Tesla Motors.

    Frankly, I think all three of those companies will be long term winners for him. I suspect Elon will become a billionaire down the road.
    And since they are private, he can assign whatever valuation he wants. There really is no market price to judge the value.

    Donald Trump likes to claim that he is worth $5 billion or more.
    Forbes was estimating around $2.5 billion before the real estate crash.
    Some analysts speculated it was only $300 million because Trump doesn't own much and only licenses his name to projects.
    Trump might have a negative net worth now.

    When people are so illiquid in their assets (non-public companies), it is impossible to value them.
