Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.”– Peter Thiel in “Zero to One” In the bookZero to One, prominent entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shares his vision on what it takes to create an extraordinary company. Specifically, Thiel believes that instead of making incremental upgrades to an existing product or service, a company must aim to do something completely new to avoid ruthless competition. While Thiel has worked with many impressive people over the years, Thiel points to Elon Musk as a particularlysuccessful memberof the Paypal Mafia that has gone “zero to one” many times.

Garcia’s P128M now ‘beyond reach’

MANILA, Philippines—An estimated P128 million that was withdrawn by ex-military comptroller Carlos Garcia’s family from the bank accounts cited in their plunder case is now “beyond reach,” Special Prosecutor Wendell Sulit said Tuesday.

Sulit told reporters that the money was withdrawn before the bank accounts were frozen. “How will you freeze air?” she said, adding that it was Garcia’s wife Clarita and their children who had withdrawn the money, and that there was no admission from Garcia that it was given to him.

Asked why the return of the money was not made a condition in the plea bargain with Garcia, Sulit said it was feared that the retired major general would play hardball and that the government might end up losing the case.

“If we will haggle and tell him, ‘We won’t agree if you will not return that,’ we will both take a hardline stance. The plunder case will continue. Before you know it, he will be acquitted and we will end up with nothing,” she said.

Sulit expressed the prosecutors’ belief that the plea bargain with Garcia was the best option to take because they had insufficient evidence to take him down for plunder.

She said this was because the testimonies of the suppliers and contractors who supposedly colluded with Garcia did not materialize, as had been promised by then Ombudsman Simeon Marcelo who filed the plunder case.

Asked to comment, Marcelo denied having promised to present the contractors. He said he believed that Clarita Garcia’s written admission to US authorities that her husband had received money from military suppliers was enough to secure a conviction.
