Even though the past two years have seen more than its fair share of tweets from President Trump, even he has nothing on the number of tweets that come from famed Uber investor Shervin Pishevar. One of his most notable Twitter instances was where he took part in a 21-hour tweet storm where he covered many different topics, including such things as the U.S. stock market, Silicon Valley, immigration, inflation and even several warnings levied at the United States urging them to change course. Here is just a sampling of some of the more interesting items:
Pishevar believes that Silicon Valley has lost its relevance to the rest of the world.
In his one of his many tweets during that evening, Pishevar noted that Silicon Valley is not quite as well-respected within the rest of the world as it used to be. He feels that the valley is now more of an idea that has “gone viral” rather than an actual physical location. He observed that technological innovators now know they can work in a number of non-U.S. locations, and Pishevar feels that this development could possibly cause some short-term economic problems for the United States.
Shervin Pishevar feels that government bonds are being overused.
Pishevar also wrote about the past practice of the big banks where they would issue bonds in an attempt to correct the market. This principle was called the “quantitative easing” solution, but Mr. Pishevar feels that the coming months and years will see a notable decrease in the effectiveness of this strategy. Shervin Pishevar believes that sometimes when something is used too much it will decrease its effectiveness, and he believes this will be the case with these bank bonds.
Shervin Pishevar feels that today’s entrepreneurs are a different breed than they were in times past.
Pishevar feels that the current American trend of isolationism is an extremely poor idea in the long run. Simply put, he noted how today’s entrepreneurs are increasingly mobile, and they do not operate with a border policy in mind. Unlike the entrepreneurs of yesterday, today’s businessperson has the benefit of mobile technology. Thus, they could just as easily operate in Mexico and help their economy as they could the American economy.
All in all, a truly fascinating twitter commentary from one of the best minds in business today!
