Elon Musk Confirms He’s Moved to Texas
Moving to Texas is apparently the new, big thing. Joe Rogan moved his whole operation to Texas earlier this year. Elon Musk has also been teasing a move to Texas for awhile. Well, he finally made the move, but not the full move a lot of people thought he was going to make. He has personally moved to Texas, but the operations for SpaceX and Tesla remain in California. Musk has been very critical of California saying:
If a team has been winning for too long, they do tend to get a little complacent, a little entitled and then they don’t win the championship anymore. California has been winning for too long.
He was eventually asked if he had moved out of California and he gave a rather long winded answer:
First of all, Tesla and SpaceX obviously have massive operations in California. In fact, it’s worth noting that Tesla is the last car company still manufacturing cars in California. SpaceX is the last aerospace company still doing significant manufacturing in California. So. There used to be over a dozen car plants in California. And California used to be the center of aerospace manufacturing! My companies are the last two left...That’s a very important point to make.
Of course he still hasn't actually answered the question there. But, he finally said:
For myself, yes I have moved to Texas.
There has been a big move from not only celebrities leaving California, but also tech companies bailing out of Silicon Valley as well. The move for Musk could save him billions of dollars.
