Shervin Pishevar’s revelation in a tweet storm

Shervin Pishevar is one of the people who has made significant contributions to the growth of the US economy. By supporting the growth of some of the biggest companies in the country, there is no doubt that he deserves recognition when he talks about matters of finance and economics. As a successful investor, he has had to make brilliant decisions that are backed by the performance of the US economy. His advice should, therefore, be treated with the seriousness deserved since it might be the difference between a successful and a losing investment. Shervin Pishevar uses the social media a lot to engage his followers.

Shervin Pishevar has engaged his followers in a tweet storm that contained 50 successive tweets. The tweet storm lasted for 21 hours and revealed a lot about the US economy. He believes that the economy is not headed in the right direction and he predicts that a financial crisis will soon hit the country. There are credible signs from the performance of the stock market, bond market and major assets. Shervin projects the equities market to lose over 6000 points and drive the economy to the downside.

Shervin Pishevar has also indicated that the country will also be performing badly in other sectors. He points out that the US will lose the infrastructural prowess to China. He cited an example where China is now building a railway station in nine hours. The US continues to lag in infrastructure development, a development that he relates to poor decisions made by the government and private companies.

Shervin Pishevar also used the tweet storm to show that the country will soon suffer due to a decline of the Silicon Valley as the best innovations hub. Shervin has predicted that the Silicon Valley will lose its glory as many countries come up with their Silicon Valleys. Today, it is not about coming to a physical location in the United States. Silicon Valley is an idea that many countries are striving to implement. In the future, the immigrant talent coming to the United States will go down significantly, and the US will face stiff competition from other countries.
