An old video of Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk is going around on social media again. The footage where Musk says that "money has no power in itself" has gone viral on Twitter.
The video clip was from April after Musk announced his intention to buy Twitter.
In the video, Musk says that money is a database for exchanging goods and services. The actual economy is goods and services.
Musk agreed to what he said during that interview, and on Sunday, Musk posted 'yes' to the video, implying that he firmly stands by his comment on money and its power in the viral video.
People started trolling Musk over his statement on the economy and money, and that only the wealthiest guy in the world could assert that money has no influence.
Here is what one of Musk's followers wrote:
Another Twitter user wrote that the American people and some world economies believe in the hard value of money.
In 2021, Elon Musk was the second-richest person in the world after Amazon.com, Inc AMZN founder Jeff Bezos. However, In 2022 Musk became the wealthiest man with a net worth of $219 billion.
Musk's battle with Twitter Inc TWTR is on the verge of taking a new shape. A Delaware judge has granted Twitter's request to fast-track its lawsuit against Musk, seeking to complete his $44 billion Twitter purchase deal.
