    Hey Elon i have a question for you.

    I don't like to swear but, Fuck this crowd, fuck this group and, fuck everyone there. I don't even see that so it would never even cross my mind. I don't care where they are hired from only they do. If you label people based on anything then you are wrong and shortsighted. She thought she had a clever way of saying it but did not do her research. SHe only went there to hurt Elons reputation.

    It's a shame there's so much conflict in the comments. Elon's vision has always been to move humanity in the best possible direction. Note it is humanity, not any specific country he is focused on. I'm a US citizen, and I hate that people in my country get so much malice directed toward them because of decisions made by our government. It's important to note we are not a democracy, but a republic, which is a different animal entirely. The average US citizen has very little, if any, say in how the government conducts its affairs. The decisions of the government are made by a very small group of people, as is the case for most countries.
    Not to drift too far off topic, but what I most wanted to address here is a point Elon made about the time in his life when he was considering graduate school. When he was contemplating the question "Should I go to graduate school or not", he had a realization that he was asking the wrong question. He's emphasized in interviews that asking the right question is actually the most difficult thing in any pursuit. Once he had that right question, the rest started to fall in place.
    Since I was a child, I was fascinated by nuclear fusion research, specifically the work being done at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. I was also good at math and science, and I had a father who pushed me in that direction. It seemed to make sense that I should be a physicist, even though I didn't fully understand as a child that my brain wasn't wired to be able to find happiness in that kind of pursuit. It took many years before I figured out that asking the question "Should I be a scientist?" was the wrong question, and that the correct question was, "How can I best help people and society?" Once I had that question, things started to fall into place. I wrote three novels, I moved to a career in IT to make ends, and I continue to pursue what fulfills me the most, which is writing.
    It's self-empowering to understand the mechanics behind what makes a vision a reality. I used to think the only way I could help with controlled fusion energy was to become a scientist. But in reality--and what most people don't realize--is the science of controlled fusion has already been worked out. It's simply a very large engineering problem now, and the real force against commercial fusion reactors becoming a reality is misinformation or a lack of information in the general public. People being correctly informed and educated has a direct correlation on financing and investing in the technology. As long as people think it's science fiction or that it has to be several decades away, then that actually becomes the case. The ITER project is the best step we have so far, but it's been a struggle to get it properly funded. And the fact that the majority of the world's population knows nothing about it makes it so much harder to secure funding and see progress.
    Fusion doesn't need me to be a scientist to help it along. I'd be a poor scientist and would probably contribute very little. But as a writer, I have the power to inform and educate, and I know I can help fusion the most in that capacity. That said, I can circle back around to what it means to ask the right question. Instead of someone outside the US asking "Why can't I work for SpaceX?", which is undoubtedly the wrong question, the best thing they can do for themselves and humanity is to figure out what the right question is. Once a person has that right question, the rest will fall into place.

    The law seems anti competitive. There might be some Bangladeshi or Ukrainian or South African genius who Space X can’t hire and ends up working for Russia or worse China. But on the other hand, America leads in space exploration. We didn’t need foreign help to get to the Moon, why would we need it for Mars? Why shouldn’t Mars belong to the country that gets there first and physically claims as much of it as possible? Why does it have to be an international venture? Anyway, tricky question.

    I'm not American and if he did only hire American out of voluntary choice, it would hardly be shocking to me. it can be very expedient to ensure that your team of workers is culturally and linguistically consistent if they have to work closely together under high pressure situations; you don't want translation problems to mess things up when every second counts.

    The question should have been, "Are we getting the most talented people by hiring from the US and if not, then how could that change?" The girl was arrogant and got put in her place.
    I find that people who assume motives w/out first knowing them are interjecting their own, because we all see the world through our own tinted glasses. So her assuming bigotry says more about her or her life experiences than about him or his.

    Mars should not belong just for American Citizen, the all World should have to involve in colonising the new home Planet , but Elon Musk has Right, he is not in position to decide if he can hire foreign Experts , because of NASA policy, the NASA don't want to transfer their technology specially Rocket science out side the US for national security reasons.

    Yes the question was pretty stupid indeed but I'm more disappointed in Musk for agreeing with the premise of the STUPID question. It seems most here commenting completely missed that part. He basically says "It's because I can't due to U.S. Gov policies but I agree with you it's a stupid policy".. He sounds pretty anti-American to me just like the questioner.

    As if there are not enough extremely highly qualified American's ready and willing to work for a Company right here in America... Elon Musk's answer was a bit disturbing although I think he was more about appeasing the uber- liberal SJW crowd there. At least I hope that was the case as otherwise it just shows that he is very out of touch.

    1) Because it is illegal to hire foreign workers at all if Americans are unemployed. www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1182
    2) because he knows Indians and most 3rd worlders are industrial spies and hate Americans. www.reuters.com/article/us-tata-epic-verdict/epic-systems-wins-940-mln-u-s-jury-verdict-in-tata-trade-secret-case-idUSKCN0XD135
    The instant you let these people into your company they will TAKE OVER and kick you out on the street. Americans build the companies, 3rd world losers move in and take them over. Just look at how they stole Microsoft and Google from us.
    That first woman speaking sure is JEALOUS. India Incs organized crime syndicates would LOVE to loot SpaceX and Tesla.
    America makes, the world takes. The prime problem with the US economy is millions of these remittance-hungry job robbing looters here plundering US companies!

    Everything he says makes sense. I'm only confused why he's working so hard under the American regulations when he wasn't even born there himself. Perhaps it would be easier for him to look into, not necessarily hiring non-Americans, but becoming a global company. Expanding internationally instead of "well, we can't import the help". Just export your company.

    Oh, its not wise for the US to let in people to work in areas that require knowledge of sensitive and classified information without them obtaining citizenship? I am completely pro-immigration, and think the only wall we should build should be around Trump and his entire complicit family. Letting even highly qualified people come in from other countries and be able to leave, with no need to be loyal to the US are able to potentially run off with our secrets or even worse, sabotage his own program, is the one of the dumbest and most woefully sheltered and ignorant things I have heard anyone suggest.
