This week on The australiabusinessblog.com Podcast we talked to Dom about how conservative VCs are using their dollars to shape the world, and we spoke to Taylor about how the Musk train keeps rumbling on.
Speaking of billionaires…
“A lot of the conversation that’s missing is just that it’s all about money, and the economics of everything really drives politics and politicians’ motivations. So just keeping an eye on how these ultra-conservative multibillionaires manage their money is something to shine a light on what the future could be,” Dom says in the episode. “If the people who have all the money have been the ones shaping the future, where is the rest of us, who can’t beat that?”
And on the subject of Musk…
“Elon Musk is like ‘I’ll buy Twitter anyway’, just a total turnaround. The letter to Twitter has been filed with the SEC. Now, the SEC is a big problem, it can fine you, it’s a really serious regulatory body. With “If you tell the SEC something, you should do it,” Taylor says. “But it’s Elon Musk, like he doesn’t care about the SEC. He doesn’t care about anyone. He’s rich enough not to care.”
