Here is the deal. I, among others, was surprised with the answers Muhammad bin Salman gave in the interview with the Economist. He sounded less dumb and less uneducated than he actually is. But I have been inquiring about the matter and I learned: that he never spoke directly to the Economist. He had an adviser seated next to him, and he would speak in Arabic, and the adviser spoke in English to the Economist. My hunch is that the answers were largely provided by the adviser.
