    Holy ****.

    Also, he better be dam careful making claims like this publicly. The SEC will be watching his next steps carefully. If there's even a hint that he's manipulating prices they'll gut him*.

    He's Tweeting that for two reasons.
    1) He's trying to drive up the price for investors. TSLA started off the dat around $342/share, people who already hold stock or buy right now could see a realized gain around 15-20%.
    2) It's a good way to not get sued by investors after some of the hiccups reported recently.

    Apparently the increased production is already "Trump Approved!"

    Donald is on our side!

    The combine "Uralasbest" produced an unusual batch of chrysotile: on the packaging of pallets with a mineral there is a stamp "Approved by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States". In this unusual way, the workers of the combine's asbestos-processing plant thanked US President Donald Trump for his words in defense of chrysotile-asbestos.
    He supported the head of the US Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt, who stated that his agency would no longer deal with the negative effects that could potentially result from products containing asbestos. Donald Trump supported the specialist and called asbestos "100 percent safe after use."
    "We came out with the initiative to support our chrysotile industry in this way and remind that our" mountain flax "is an important mineral for the whole world. The management has approved! ", They told in the factory.

    That's definitely a pro life position. More power to him.

    But I'm sure the pundits still want socialism because of some Australian nation that has yet to feel the full effects.

    You just vomit back whatever information Alex Jones and FOX News rams down your throat, don't you? For being an "enlightened" person, you don't do any research.

    A quick Google search would show you that, just like Catholicism around the globe, the Venezuelan Government cherry picked what parts of socialism they wanted, what they rejected, and made their own version of socialism based on capitalistic maarkets. A-la-Carte Socialism. Investing billions into the ownership of a petroleum refining/gas station business on the hopes of it sustaining them only to see oil prices start crashing wasn't a wise investment (see also: Russia, former Soviet Bloc Nations).


    But what do I know.

    You do realize that Venezuela is a strictly authoritarian form of government that nobody advocates (except possibly Trump). It's like saying those admiring an economy led by the private sector want an economy like Nazi Germany. So is socialism better? There's some evidence.

    Standard of living: The business friendly CNBC feels that the US is below 8 socialist countries (and yes, Switzerland is more socialist than the US). https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/23/us-n...the-world.html

    Economic Growth: Australia has the longest streak of economic growth in the world - almost triple that of the US. https://www.austrade.gov.au/News/Eco...eveloped-world

    This coming from someone that is more capitalistic than the average board poster.

    Also funny how he thinks that Australia is a collective region of nations like the Nordic Countries, or Scandinavian Countries, or Eastern Bloc. Even if he meant Austrian Nations, he should have stated it as Germanic Countries.

    Also, a quick search shows that most of those European region-names would look like giant Venn diagrams.

    But, Australian Nation Socialism isn't a thing.
