Elon Musk, Recession Fears, Chinese Stocks

Show notes

Tesla has fallen about 30% since Elon Musk announced his plan to buy Twitter. In that time, Musk has courted controversy over his views on ESG, remote work, and worker layoffs. Are investors finally growing tired of the Elon Musk drama?

Plus, economists, CEOs, and politicians are split over the likelihood of a US recession. Elon Musk has a “super bad feeling” about the economy but most of Wall Street are optimistic the Federal Reserve can tap on the brakes to bring inflation down without tipping the economy into a recession.

Finally, could regulatory crackdowns on China’s internet sector be easing up? And what does that mean for Didi Global? Its stock has dropped nearly 90% since its IPO last June.
