Many have compared Elon Musk with Jack Ma. Of course they have completely different backgrounds, one is an entrepreneur/scientist another is an eloquent businessman. Lets look at the companies they control.
Musk is worth $158 billion, Jack Ma $59 billion, only one-third of Musk. Musk controls eight companies namely Tesla, SpaceX, PayPal, Boring company and Neuralink, etc which covers payment platforms, ev car, interstellar exploration, underground high-speed rail, brain-computers, solar power and other fields.
