If your idea of maximizing wealth is lying to the public and shareholders about technology then sure. I expect CEOs to not make up false promises they know aren't going to happen, and to not say outlandish and stupid things to pump up stock, that should be a prison sentence. Elon Musk said verbatim "Tesla is so far ahead of everyone else nobody could produce an electric truck before we do." Well Rivian, and now GMC have handed production electric trucks to customers. Where's the Cybertruck, oh thats right maybe in 2023 it'll show up.The CEO's job is to maximiae the wealth of the shareholders. Musk has done a pretty job of that, wouldn't you say?
