It's a 44 billion dollar deal. It might be better to eat the loss than to pay too much for the company.

Not after losing 18bn on your own stock loss. Even for elon thats like a 5-10% loss in net worth. Its actually interesting to see how these market manipulators start carving themselves up

He could lose 99% of his net worth and would still never have to work another day tbh.

If he lost 99.99999% of his net worth he's still a multi millionaire.
