Tesla Still a Train Wreck After Near-Death Experience

In This Episode

In a week that included a one-day 257-point surge for the Dow, record Black Friday spending, and a legal challenge to Apple’s “monopoly” continuing its march to the Supreme Court, Buck once again brings on Extreme Value editor Dan Ferris to make sense of things.
In the wake of Elon Musk’s own admission that Tesla “almost died this year,” Dan breaks down the latest numbers: as it produces 1,000 Model 3 sedans a week in Q3 and keeps bleeding cash, his position on Tesla “has never changed.”
Later on, they’re joined by this week’s guest. Mattie Duppler is the Founder and President of Forward Strategies, a strategic consulting firm. She also serves as the Senior Fellow for Fiscal Policy at the National Taxpayers Union, a nonpartisan advocacy group focused on budget and tax issues and sits on the board of the Center for a Free Economy.
In layman’s terms, she breaks down what it really means for businesses not to have to shoulder immense paperwork for their deductions, and how the resulting savings – and flurry of capital investment – circle back to the American worker.
