a government response. but with fewer women in the next parliament, the uphill climb has just been made steeper. zane basra v o 0 michigan. time magazine has named the entrepreneur ellen mosque. it's a 2021 person of the year. the magazine says the chief executive of tesla and space x is the best example of a massive shift in our society. it credits the 50 year old with creating solutions to global crises and embodying the possibilities and perils of the age of tech titans. the magazine says that gives the war to someone who affects the news or the world. in the biggest way for better or worse will to him, hubbard is an assistant professor of management at the university of notre dumb. he says a lot mosques impacts on the worlds is beyond business. if we stand back and think about all you on mosque has been able to achieve,
10:29 am
it's quite impressive. and if you step back even 20 years, and you tried to think about where the auto industry would be, for example, without tesla or where our space industry would be without space ex. i don't think we would quite be expecting the same results if you want must, hadn't been there taking the risks, innovating and really, you know, going for it. i think it's been been quite inspiring from that perspective. when we think about the, the antics that he does, for example, on twitter, and the effect that it has in stock markets and social conversations around the world. it is beyond just the accomplishments that he's had in business. and not all of it has been for good, there's been concerned with, you know, working conditions in the companies and the way that he approaches things. philanthropy for example. but when you stand back and you think about, if we, if we took eli musk out of the world, there would be a big gap. and whether not that's a purely good gap or a bad gap. there would still be quite a, quite a large gap, 3 stand back and we think about the big audacious goals the space x had when they
10:30 am
started they've achieved most everything that they set out for up to now whether not it's been on timer or a little bit later, it is very, very impressive, and so they've been having the goal of mars in their sites for a very long time. and so i think that the steps that they're taking right now look like they're on the path to, to, to meet that goal. it's going to be challenging, obviously, but i think that they are their vision of having that as something that they want to achieve. i think that they have the right people, the right technology, and right now the right leader in order to be able to achieve those goals. ah, this is al jazeera, these are the headlines us secretary of state and city blinking says the asia pacific region needs to be free of coercion, putting kin as an indonesia on the 1st like over regional tour. washington is trying to counter china's influence. we all have
