Everyone who's telling you that Tesla is influencing the rest of the auto industry is completely wrong (TSLA)

Tesla is routinely considered to be influencing the traditional auto industry. Tesla has exerted some influence, but it has been relatively modest in the grand scheme of things. Auto executives are too busy dealing with real business problems to worry about Tesla — and if Tesla did become truly influential, the traditional industry could quickly develop and sell millions of electric vehicles. If you follow Tesla and the company's endless flurry of news, non-news, rumor, innuendo, and Twitteri...

How 3 Detroit Founders Built Tech Startups Despite City’s Bankruptcy

On July 18th, 2013, the city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, becoming the largest city in American history to do so. Just four years earlier, Chrysler and General Motors—automobile companies that were long a staple of the Detroit economy—had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.“You hear stories about the Great Depression in the ‘30s, I can only imagine what we experienced here in Detroit matched that. It was a scary time with so many negatives. There was no credit, the auto companies were...

Don’t Let Poor Negotiation Skills Doom Your Entrepreneurial Venture

by Samuel Dinnar and Lawrence Susskind, co-authors of “Entrepreneurial Negotiation: Understanding and Managing the Relationships that Determine Your Entrepreneurial Success“ Eighty to ninety percent of all start-ups will fail. While there are many reasons for this, one of the biggest problems new ventures face is poor negotiation skills. The single biggest threat to entrepreneurial success is an inability to handle the negotiations that arise in the evolution of a start-up.  Founders must be ab...

Tesla's layoffs mean the company's lead on electric vehicles could be ending, one Wall Street analyst says (TSLA)

Tesla is laying off about 3,000 workers, the company announced Friday morning. Shares dropped as much as 7% following the news as investors questioned what the restructuring meant for the stock. Morgan Stanley said the move could be a sign Tesla's US market-share lead could be peaking, while an analyst at Wedbush said investors had "more questions than answers." News on Friday that Tesla planned to lay off about 3,000 workers seemed to heighten investor worries that demand could be shrinking ...

Tesla to cut 3,100 jobs as Musk sees ‘difficult’ road ahead

Elon Musk is cutting Tesla Inc.’s workforce by 7 percent — or more than 3,000 jobs — warning that the “road ahead is very difficult” in making electric cars more affordable for the mass market.

Musk wrote in a blog post that the Palo Alto-based company managed to eke out a profit in the final three months of 2018, though narrower than the hard-won third-quarter earnings it reported in October.

Is your time worth more than $0.30 an hour?

Most of us believe our time is extremely valuable, certainly worth more than thirty cents. But then you read about human decision-making, and you have to wonder what goes through people’s heads.

Amazon published more than one thousand titles in 2017, and now commands roughly a majority of all book purchases made in the U.S., online...

2020 Mustang Shelby GT500: One Slick Snake

2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 debuts at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Capable of mid-three-second zero to 60 times and sub-11-second quarter-mile scores, says Ford. Aerodynamics, downforce, and race-tuning the chassis were among the priorities during development. Ford drove all the way over to Detroit from Dearborn the other day, and decided to show off this: The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. It’s about what you’d expect.

On Thursday, as the media-and-Wall-Street aspects of the Detroit auto show were winding down, Morgan Stanley auto analyst Adam Jonas published a research note in which he praised General Motors' business and leadership and made some accurate — yet harsh — poin...

The Boeing 717 was once a failed plane airlines didn't want to buy. Here's why it's now my favorite jet. (BA)

The Boeing 717 is a slightly offbeat aircraft that went out of production in 2006. Boeing chalked it up as a failure, a result of absorbing some McDonnell Douglas planes when it acquired the planemaker in the mid-1990s. But the 100-seat 717-200 is now in serious demand as carriers move away from regional jets. I recently flew on a Delta Air Lines Boeing 717 from Newark to Detroit. It was my second time flying on this great aircraft. I've flown on many big aircraft and plenty of small ones. I'...
