Clash Of The Titans: What Buffett, Musk Are Squabbling About

Why Elon Musk and Warren Buffett Are Suddenly Trolling Each Other Over See's Candies

Yes, that's right. Musk posted on his Twitter page in the wee hours of Sunday morning that the supposed candy company is "going to be amazing", even dismissing any notion that this might be one of his occasional attempts of humour.

Not much is now known about this notional candy company, let alone whether Musk is indeed serious about starting a company of such stark contrast to his other ventures, including cars, power walls, solar panel roofs, and colonizing Mars. For Elon Musk, it's candy.

Elon Musk took to Twitter to criticize Warren Buffett's investment philosophy, and threatened on May 5 to compete directly with one of the Berkshire Hathaway chairman's most famous businesses, See's sweets.

Munger and Buffett were responding to a question at Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting about Musk's comments this week.

The business "announcement" was inspired by a disagreement between the two billionaires over a claim that Musk made in a Tesla earnings call, that economic "moats" (a term coined by Buffett, which basically indicates a competitive advantage that one business has over others) are less important than the speed of innovation.

All three riders walked away from the crash, although Pedrosa complained of severe pain in his right hip. Tito Rabat and Scott Redding rounded out the points scorers in a race of high attrition.

So whether or not Musk actually intends to start a candy company, the key is to never underestimate the man's random claims. "They're like nice in a sort of quaint, vestigial way". He followed it up asserting that he was "super super serious" about the venture before diverting and mentioning the plot of Willy Wonka. But if your only defence against invading armies is a moat, you will not last long.

I surely have no doubts that Musk has the potential to disrupt the boring candy industry and introduce sweets that'd leave you salivating.

As technology hasn't marched far enough yet to concoct such organic-robot creatures, it is certainly feasible that Elon Musk could manage to use a human brain interface of some kind if he is truly intent on these cyborg dragons.

You may remember, for example, the time he announced he was selling Boring Company-branded flamethrowers in a tweet.
