Elon Musk: Entreprenurial Replicant

N.B.: With all of the trouble Tesla Motors is running into now, I thought it germane to publish this article which originally appeared in the December issue of the Gold Goats 'n Guns Investment Newsletter.  I know that the sequel to 1982’s classic film Blade Runner didn’t exactly set the box office on fire.
