There is no doubt Foxconn founder and megabillionaire Terry Gou is a smart man. But he’s also a master manipulator.
Take a look at his comments at Foxconn’s recent shareholder meeting. As reported by Business Insider, Gou had sharp words for fellow gazillionaire Warren Buffett, who has invested in BYD, which is engaged in litigation with Foxconn over IP infringement claims.
Here’s Gou calling out Buffett:
If Warren Buffett really believes in BYD’s electric car technology, then why doesn’t he drive a BYD car instead of an American car? Doesn’t that tell you something about what he really thinks of BYD?
It should be noted that Buffett spent $26.5 billion last year to acquire the second-largest US railroad. By Gou’s twisted logic, Buffett shouldn’t be driving at all — he should be taking a train everywhere. But then again, Gou didn’t get so rich by being a generous soul.
