Elon Musk, the world's richest man, is buying Twitter. But the company is notoriously unprofitable.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has called Musk the "singular solution" to the company's business problems.

Host Scott Tong speaks with Will Oremus, tech writer and analyst at the Washington Post, about the great man fallacy, which he says overstates the importance and power of one prominent man.

This segment aired on May 3, 2022.
