    Elon Musk is not an “infrastructure genius”. This is the same man who thinks private citizens should be able to build their own tunnels and who thinks the self-driving car will revolutionize transit without solving the geometry problem inherent with private automobiles. He’s a brilliant salesman and he is developing revolutionary new technology that will address our ever-growing energy needs, but other than the hyperloop (which has even less likelyhood of being built in the US than HSR) I can’t think of anything that would qualify him as an expert in infrastructure.
