Investors of every level should be worried. Shervin Pishevar certainly is. The angel investor and founder of An investing firm decided to share his worries with the world as warnings. He used Twitter as his platform and created a tweetstorm of 50 tweets over 21 hours.
The Stock Market
Shervin Pishevar started it out by talking about a possible 6,000 point aggregate drop in the stock market. He identified that investors have already lost their 2018 games and will likely lose their 2017 gains within the coming months.
The tweets continue to go on, all numbered, talking about various aspects of the stock market. He identified how it would wobble and how many people would go on the defensive in order to protect their investments. Within 24 hours, some of the warnings were already taking effect.
Shervin Pishevar also went into detail about the various startups in the United States. He mentioned how many of them don’t stand a chance because there are too many monopolies that have the same level of power as a nation-state. They wield their power overtly and covertly in order to take down the startups, making it difficult for any small companies to be successful.
The problem with this is that monopolies are going to ruin entrepreneurship. Eventually, it will start to impact the economy negatively because of pricing.
Even Silicon Valley made it into the tweets by Shervin Pishevar because of how innovation is no longer there. Many companies outside of the United States are becoming more powerful and more successful. People no longer need to visit Silicon Valley, California in order to reach a level of entrepreneurial success. This, too, will have an impact on the economy.
The economic future, according to Shervin Pishevar, is grim. The only thing that we can do is prepare ourselves.
