Would Elon Musk Be a Success on Wall Street?

Which leader could bring home the bacon for JPMorgan? Elon Musk (left) or Jamie Dimon (right)?

In this segment from The Motley Fool's everything-financials show, Where the Money Is, banking analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer play a round of "Would You Rather..." and cover everything from BofI Holding  (NASDAQ: BOFI  ) to Elon Musk running JPMorgan  (NYSE: JPM  ) to the future of Medallion Financial  (NASDAQ: TAXI  ) .

Is traditional banking dying?
Do you hate your bank? If you're like most Americans, chances are good that you answered yes to that question. While that's not great news for consumers, it certainly creates opportunity for savvy investors. That's because there's a brand new company that's revolutionizing banking, and is poised to kill the hated traditional bricks-and-mortar banking model. And amazingly, despite its rapid growth, this company is still flying under the radar of Wall Street. For the name and details on this company, click here to access our new special free report.

    I do not think Musk would want to lower his standards and work on Wall Street. He is way too smart for them, after all, they are just dressed up salesmen with no moral compass and not to much in term of smarts. They make up for all these failings by a huge dose of hubris and plain old chutzpah. And lobbyists and tame congressmen, of course.

    No, Elon Musk would probably not do well on Wall street. He appears to be honest.

    Wall Street is not real. Its a Cabal to create personal wealth for the Cabal.

    Elon creates real products/industries to better mankind. He would have to fire everyone, move Wall Street to CA or TX and hire all new people.
