The SEC and Tesla have reached a deal to end the agency's assault on Elon Musk. Will its provisions be binding on other corporations as well?

The story of Tesla and the SEC isn’t as simple as many think

After the last article that I wrote, I told Zach that I intended to write around an article a week. I've got a backlog of ideas for articles, and I wanted to be a bit more responsive to breaking news. I feel like a lot of the articles written about electric vehicles right now are of a lower quality. I wanted to do some research to really help put some of those articles into perspective, and hopefully give people some more data to draw their own conclusions

I am here to relay that the Tesla community officially, formally, and with colorful stamps and balloons supports Elon Musk's short statement* in support of Tesla longs and human society

A great deal of attention has been recently placed on the conflict between Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding certain tweets by the CEO of Tesla. What is not clear to many, however, is the extraordinary number of potential securities violations that are happening regularly with regards to Tesla’s stock (NASDAQ: TSLA) that are the work of individuals opposing Tesla’s success. It’s fair to say that a war is presently underway between Tesla and its enemies

Last week included record-shattering production and delivery numbers from Tesla and thus a dramatic shift in the US automotive market. The American-made Model 3 became the 4th highest selling car in the United States and was for the second month in a row the highest grossing car in the United States. It was the only car in the top 7 produced by an American car company. Furthermore, the Model 3 totally demolished the competition in the luxury car market and Tesla as a whole was the top selling luxury vehicle brand in the country. The week also included an SEC lawsuit regarding some of Elon's tweets and a settlement regarding that lawsuit. How did the headlines match up with that news and more? Read on to find out

I follow two things very closely — cleantech and US politics. I consider the latter a civic duty, but seldom weave it into my work. I listen to segments from many sources across the political spectrum and read articles across the political spectrum. I love MSNBC's coverage because it is generally so good at cutting through the noise, digging into the topics that matter the most (imho), and calling B.S. what it is — B.S.
However, MSNBC doesn't know cleantech

Elon Musk sent two emails to employees over the weekend praising them for their hard work and suggesting the company was very close to being profitable.

CNBC is reporting that Elon Musk and Tesla have settled the lawsuit brought last Thursday by the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) alleging fraud as a result of Musk's biggest August tweet, a tweet saying he was considering taking the company private and had already lined up the investors he needed to make that happen ("funding secured")

I wonder whether the SEC picked the wrong cherries from Elon Musk's deposition
September 27th, 2018 | by Steve Hanley
The SEC has sued Elon Musk personally, alleging fraud. One result could be that Elon is banned from serving as an officer or director of any publicly traded company -- including his own.

It is well known that Elon Musk and Tesla don’t like to conform to established industry standards or feel limited by them. So trying to measure their performance by established industry standards is like measuring them on a scale of bananas, utterly pointless

I'm a huge fan of the media and high-quality journalism. The free press is a cornerstone of democracy, and much more. The largest media outlets in the world have the resources, passion, and expertise to do tremendous investigative reporting that is invaluable to society. But they are dropping the ball on Tesla, misleading consumers in a highly biased manner
