Elon Musk Predicts U.S. In Recession Until "Spring Of 2024"

• by Tyler Durden

When prompted in a Twitter thread early on Friday morning, the Tesla CEO said that he thought the current recession would last "probably until spring of '24". 

"It sure would be nice to have one year without a horrible global event," Musk said earlier in the thread. 

He was then asked how much worse he thought the recession would get. 

Musk answered: "Varies a lot. Tesla & SpaceX are in good positions, but many other companies are not." Channeling his inner Milton Friedman, he continued: "Recessions do have a silver lining in that companies that shouldn't exist stop existing."

Its a timeline that Musk didn't bring up during the most recent Tesla earnings call. Recall, on the call earlier this week, Musk said the company is pushing forward with its production plans despite the current state of the global economy. 

Musk said: "To be frank, we're very pedal to the metal come rain or shine. We are not reducing our production in any meaningful way, recession or not recession."
