Shervin Pishevar, the venture capitalist who has significant interests in Uber and was the founder of Sherper Capital before resigning due to sexual allegations, has shown some considerable expertise and knowledge in various issues surrounding the government and the overall economic policies in the United States. In a 21-hour Twitter rant where he engaged his followers, Shervin Pishevar expressed his concerns towards various policies affecting the government and what people should expect. Although some of the issues are very controversial, some of them are realistic and will likely change the global order of technology and economic well-being.
Shervin Pishevar highlights that China will overtake the United States as the largest economy in the world in the next few years. According to the capital investor, China has significantly invested in infrastructure projects. This is central to what the United States government is doing. The government seems to be focusing on healthcare, foreign policies, and international trade leaving its infrastructure to the mercies of local investors who cannot compete with China, which has devoted much of its resources in infrastructure campaigns.
In another tweet, Shervin Pishevar noted that the government had turned its eye blind to some of the major organizations around the country. The big five, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and Alphabet have been controlling the economy for a significant period. They are yielding much power such that there is no chance that new organizations cannot emerge. There is a situation that the five organizations have turned into monopolies which are controlling the market including choosing the trends while at the same time determining prices. The government should check on the policies that can help small organizations to emerge under the shadows of the big five.
One of the tweets that seemed to show his optimist side is when Shervin Pishevar noted the emergence of innovations in the transport industry despite the infrastructure sector being on its deathbed. He indicates that Virgin Hyperloop and SpaceX are some of the significant investments that will be critical in the endeavors of the next generation. SpaceX technology is looking forward to making space tourism a feasible project while Virgin Loop is a technology focused on increasing transportation speed by the use of floating trains.
