Hedge Fund Investor Shervin Pishevar’s 2018 Tweetstorm Is Gaining Support

Shervin Pishevar is an investor who knows what’s coming in the investment market. Mr. Pishevar doesn’t wait for other investors when he’s on the hunt for a profitable startup. He likes to take risks. And his risk-taking pays off. Shervin Pishevar is a wealthy hedge fund investor who helped put Silicon Valley on the startup map. He picked Uber when no one knew what Uber would do in the transportation industry. And he picked Warby Parker when the retail price of glasses got out of control. Some investors say Shervin Pishevar has a sixth-investing sense, and he uses it wisely.

Mr. Pishevar resigned as the CEO of Sherpa Capital at the end of 2017. Shervin decided to stay out of the investing limelight for a month in 2018. But he came out of the investment shadows in February 2018 in an unusual way. Shervin decided to tweet his way back on top, but most investors thought his investment sense was out to lunch. Pishevar told his Twitter followers the stock market would give back all its gains in 2018, and that happened. He also said China would replace Silicon Valley as the startup center of the world.

Those two predictions were just the start of a 50-tweet-storm that left some investors scratching their heads. Those investors thought Donald Trump’s debt-based economic policies and the tax cut would keep the money flowing. Shervin Pishevar saw the signs of a recession before Trump’s government did. Trump is still in denial about the economy even though his trade war with China, and his steel and aluminum tariffs are hurting American companies.

Shervin Pishevar didn’t know Trump would shut down the government over a $5.7 billion border wall fight. But that fight is the catalyst that makes Shervin Pishevar’s financial predictions facts, not fantasies. Inflation is on the move just like Shervin predicted, and the bond market is not as attractive as it used to be thanks to yields that don’t make sense.

Pishevar’s tweetstorm is back in the investment news for one reason. Shervin predicted a financial meltdown while other investors drank Trump’s investment Kool-Aid.

Shervin Pishevar says private sector now taking over for incompetence-riddled government

Shervin Pishevar ranks as one of the most successful venture capitalists in the world today. His company, Investment company, has been responsible for the creation of some of the most widely known tech companies in the world, including Virgin Hyperloop, Uber and Airbnb. He is also an entrepreneur in his own right, having founded major tech companies like Ionside, WebOS and Social Gaming Network.

But Shervin Pishevar may be best-known for running one of the most widely followed Twitter feeds of any figure within Silicon Valley. Shervin Pishevar has more than 100,000 of the most astute people in tech following his every tweeted phrase. And his wide range of interests have ensured that his many well-reasoned opinions have made it into the public discourse, with some even generating headlines all by themselves.

One of the areas upon which Shervin Pishevar has routinely hit throughout his tweets has been the fact that the government of the United States is increasingly coming to resemble a late-stage Alzheimer’s patient that is slowly losing all executive functioning.

Shervin Pishevar points to NASA as one of the most shocking and cringe-inducing disasters in human resource misallocation of recent decades. Pishevar says that the agency that was once responsible for doing the nearly impossible, putting a man on the moon with computer technology and space travel still in its infancy, has accomplished little more than doing neat science fair projects over the last three decades. Even the space shuttle program, says Pishevar, was largely the product of work done in the early ‘70s.

Since then, NASA has managed to do little more than lift some junk into orbit and kill astronauts through astronomical incompetence. Pishevar says that the agency’s focus on diversity and inclusion have essentially ruined its ability to carry out its stated mission. Now, instead of exploring the stars, NASA has become a spaced-out vacuum into which all talent that passes its event horizon is irretrievably lost.

Pishevar says that NASA is a good illustration for the process of the broader governmental degeneration within the United States.
