Manuel P. Nappo Be more Alfred – Switzerland had its very own Elon Musk 150 years ago

Elon Musk is celebrated by many today for how he revolutionized the energy sector. But there was an Elon Musk before Elon Musk came onto the scene. We had a man who dug tunnels through mountains while everybody else was building on the plains. Alfred Escher was our Elon Musk. Long before it was cool. Just imagine the sorts of plans Escher would have today... So where is the new Alfred Escher?
