      I know it's been while, but finally came around to finishing another video! I know the business videos aren't everyone's favourites, but I hope you enjoy!

      EDIT: Some short answers to questions I've seen in the comments:

      *1. From where did I get the information?*
      Almost put that one in the video - all the financial info I use is from the companies' own financial statements/ quarterly reports. Publicly traded companies need to publish those regularly and you can find them on their websites - just google.

      *2. If Tesla made a loss of $2.2 billion, how come they only lost $60 million in cash?*
      Because not every cost you incur is paid in cash. For example, say you own a car. Last year, your car lost $1,000 in value. If you were a business, in your accounting you would note down those $1,000 as a *cost* - because it is a real cost! But not a cost you have to pay in cash. That's why "profits" and "losses" are on paper. But cash is the hard currency you gained or lost.

      *3. What about government subsidies?*
      Yes, the US government has been supporting Tesla through tax breaks and loans. The reason I didn't touch on this in the video, is because the effective amount of cash Tesla has received through those programs is borderline insignificant, compared to the amount of cash they have received from non-state lenders and investors. In comparison, GM and Ford have received an order of magnitude more support from the US government during the crisis.

      Tesla didn't get any subsidies, ALL ev's get subsidies. Oil gets thousand times more subsidies.

      In most parts correct but not exactly accurate, P<AVC : Broke , P=AVC : Loss but keeps going , P>MC>AVC : Profits. Tesla after one year from your very informative video is still on the 2nd scenario joggling with various financial risks. Hope it holds strong but most probably won't make any profits in the near future.

      What if the cash invested in Tesla starts being pulled out by investors? That's what's coming.

      That s BS, the only reson why is Tesla could run a business that is losing billions for years is that they are indexed at stock exchange and linked to the world of finance, everyday business will be shut down after a year of unpaid debts.

      Tesla is intentionally running at a loss because it's investing in expensive automation. Amazon did the same thing. Most early business strategies use this.

      And with their big sales push, how did they lose $700,000,00 in the most recent report. Appears like they are still losing great buckets of money and now sales are dropping. With the China super factory losing the Panasonic battery operation, what is going to happen?

      Because the fraudster Musk knows how to sell dreams to low information posers and how to defraud billions of tax payer dollars in corporate welfare. Tesla's are junk and the company has failed by any reasonable measure. Tesla buyers are invariably vile expressions of humanity.
