I've been thinking about Tesla and if we have someone in Sweden who could serve as a kind of Swedish substitute for him. Maybe this guy, Gustaf de Laval, a brilliant scientist and inventor who died broke because of his total lack of financial intelligence. He invented a nozzle used in modern rocket engines, a super-fast steam turbine, a submarine and a hovercraft boat. An interesting man, at least, although maybe not of Tesla's stature.
