Shervin Pishevar is well-known for being an entrepreneur and an investor. When he recently took to Twitter to discuss some of his concerns about the United States, tens of thousands of followers tuned in. Since then, countless blogs have focused on his tweets, ensuring even more readers are aware of his concerns.
One of the top concerns is the state of the economy. Shervin Pishevar focused his energy on the stock market, predicting that it would drop in aggregate over the next several months. True to his prediction, the market started to shake days after his tweets.
Shervin Pishevar also discussed the monopolies in the United States. Five that he focused on to a great extent include Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Alphabet (the parent company of Google). The government has allowed these companies to grow to such a point that they have access to more data than a sovereign nation. They’re also taking down many startups, making it difficult for anyone to compete against them.
Speed of Execution
Shervin Pishevar also talked about how poor the speed of execution in the United States is. Many countries are getting things done faster and that’s because they’re using a more modernized infrastructure. A perfect example is how a train station was constructed in only nine hours in China.
It only makes sense that Shervin Pishevar is concerned about what’s going on in the country. With such problems, it could be years before we see another startup grow to the level of Uber or Airbnb. As an investor, Shervin wants to make sure that more entrepreneurs have an opportunity to launch a successful business.
Now that he has voiced some of his concerns, the hope is that more people will heed his words and take action to make an improvement across the country.
