America Must Scramble to Compete According to Shervin Pishevar
After a noticeably quiet two-month period, which saw him uncharacteristically absent from the public spotlight, Shervin Pishevar resurfaced with a wealth of information to divulge. Throughout his career, which has taken him from a student of molecular cellular biology at the University of California, Berkeley, to one of the most influential entrepreneurs in the world, he has made a name for himself through his savvy investments and forward thought. Companies such as Warby Parker, Tumblr, Airbnb, and Dollar Shave Club, are a part of Shervin Pishevar’s portfolio, and he has served as one of the earliest investors with each of these thriving entities. In coming back to social media, Shervin Pishevar shared his perspective regarding a variety of important topics, including the future of the stock market, changes regarding the world’s monetary system, and the changing shape of entrepreneurship around the world.
What separated Shervin Pishevar’s return tweet session from previous times, is the rate in which they were delivered, as the co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop One posted 50 tweets over 24 hours, resting only for dinner. One of the standout topics was the fate of the United States stock market, which, he believes will not be one of prosperity, at least in the near future. The stock market has had a number of prominent backers, even during its sub-par performance in the early part of the year, most notably, President of the United States, Donald Trump. If Shervin Pishevar’s theories prove to be correct, the stock market is due to fall in the range of 6000 points in the months to come, which could have drastic implications for all of the major markets. As if on cue, the Dow Jones proceeded to take one of its largest dips in recent memory – losing over 1000 points in a day. Much of the market panic that resulted from the massive losses were due to less than stellar treasury auctions and a number of sell-offs. Shervin Pishevar would address the “Cheerleader-in-Chief” directly during the tweetstorm, admonishing the president’s decision to champion the market and creating the viral hashtag “TrumpDump.”
