Dubai: Are the titans of tech out of their depth?
On today’s podcast, we look at the inability of some of the so-called geniuses to run a company in a rational way.
Elon Musk, in particular, has come under scrutiny in recent months for his erratic behaviour, his offensive Twitter remarks, and his flashy private life.
Mark Zuckerberg, too, has been seen on many occasions as lacking basic compassion and an understanding of what his customers really want.
So the question becomes, should these visionaries be the ones actually executing their visions? Or should they entrust such grandiose, disruptive ideas to a Harvard MBA?
Sounds a bit dull, no? We debate whether there is a perfect balance between ties and turtlenecks, suits and sandals, and corporate focus meeting the often lofty visions of Silicon Valley.
