Looking at the comments it’s obvious that a lot of people don’t understand economics at all. There is a ton of comments by people from California and even the Bay Area that are just like “Oh well. Bye Felicia”. There is no recognition that this is a huge economic loss for not just the Tesla workers but for the whole state and Northern California region. And for what? So some unelected official can go on a power trip?

If I were a shareholder or on the board of directors of Tesla, I'd be so fucking nervous right now allowing him to be at the helm. Elon Musk is exhibiting so much volatile and unpredictable behavior, and what's worse is that he's doing it in the most problematically public way.

>calling Tesla overvalued on Twitter
>renouncing all physical possessions
>naming his kid something everybody will mercilessly tease him about as he grows up
>getting into a pissing match with politicians over painfully irrelevant stuff, and threatening to move Tesla to another state in a stunt that would be an extremely expensive operation that could disrupt the stability and momentum of the company
>saying generally stupid childish shit like he thinks he's a bad boy Tony Stark

How long would it take to find land, build a factory, and have it completely tooled? How long to arrange all the business infrastructure to operate in a different state--- supply lines, labor, etc etc? To get all the legal considerations squared away in a new state? It's a waste of money to pull off a temper tantrum like this, and on top of that it's a waste of time. Tesla isn't even turning a profit right now and lost almost a billion dollars in 2019. Musk said that at one point in the past Tesla was mere weeks from having to close. They can't afford it and Musk is full of hot air. This is a painfully stupid, expensive move just so Musk can thumb his nose at the government of California.

Spoken as a true retard. The socialistic policies enacted by Maduro helped their economy when you actually look at the facts(I know thats hard for retards like yourself), and their current state of affairs is largely a byproduct of the US trying to fuck their economy(when the US wants to do something it gets done).

I know you can "grantee"(how the fuck do you fuck up the spelling on that, only a true retard can misspell something that bad) that California would be fucked but when you actually get into the details you'd see its the rest of the US that would be worse off. California would be a better place if we didn't have to pay a bunch of tax money paying for retards like yourself to get educated in red states, paying for the subsidies for your farmers(our farmers are self sufficient because we can take care of our own, in fact California probably gives them too much support if anything). I'd love take the surplus we put into the federal government away and see fucks like you squirm.

>Everything is propped up by pedowood and tech
The stupidity to say our economy is propped up by these two industries is just astounding, they're huge industries of course they're a major benefit. But ask yourself, who do you want to bet on, entertainment and tech? Or manufacturing, the supposedly ACTUALLY productive sector you reference. Fucking dumbass.

Everyone's lining up to suck Elon's dick over some angry tweets.
Every other state but Cali thinks this is some Big-Dick move when in reality its just an unprofessional CEO having a mini-meltdown during a quarantine

He is more than welcome to shut down his factory,
lay off his employees with severance,
remove all his equipment,
find a new factory location,
build a factory,
train new employees,
and get back to building cars that no one is in a position to buy right now,
and manage this all during a shelter-in-place.

I would be more than happy to see this happen.
He is not the one who has to worry about getting all fucked up because he's not the one exposed, it's all his employees that'll be working the car mine.
Tyson is a essential business that handles our food, and they just had a massive outbreak. So Cali should bend over for a ~Cool~ CEO for the sake of building cars?

Nope, and I gave the reasons why thats not true. The agricultural industry of Cali(my dad works in it so I actually know more that you'd think) is fine.

And besides, the exodus is overblown(net migration is like -100k a year which isn't that big of a deal for a state like Cali). Maybe you can't see the writing on the wall but the age of Manufacturing in America is over. Keep trying to save those sectors that won't exist in 10, 20, 30 years while tech reigns supreme.
