This week, Elon Musk, a billionaire and CEO of Tesla, stunned reporters in a Wall Street Journal interview that depopulation is the problem. He pointed to the low birth rates as it should serve as a grave concern.
His solution to the problem is for families to have more children. He even goes on to dispel the overpopulation myth bounced around from colleagues like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, et al.
When asked why he has six children, Musk told the reporter that he “wants to set a good example”.
Musk’s comment is a breath of fresh air. It is a reminder that you can be a wealthy person, and must still maintain your sanity.
We hope more people would follow Musk’s lead to grow their families.
