My take on Tesla

Elon Musk is a very bright man who has figured out how to use other companies in strategic alliances to grow Tesla. Tesla has alliances with most of the major car manufactures where they trade patents, manufacturing skills, and/or products. By building a mega battery factory in Nevada, Tesla will be building batteries for all other car manufacturers, and hopefully reduce the cost of the batteries. As the demand for electric engines/cars grows, Telsa's share will continue to grow. Making the pie bigger, helps everyone. By George Tyler on 2014 09 22
