It does occur to me that the smartest people on the planet are rarely the richest or the most powerful. Quite the reverse in fact.

I would imagine the same issues would face a general AI.

I think the best strategy for world domination is not to develop super human intelligence, but to be dumb and lie consistently and plausibly. The LLM’s are well advanced in that.

Of course, the very best strategy for vast riches is to be both dumb and lucky.
