Shervin Pishevar: The Tweet Storm That Will Go Down In History

There are great moments in history from throughout the ages. Most of us can recall at least some of the moments that directly touched our lives and had an impact on the way we think about things. Perhaps that is true for you as well. Usually those thoughts don’t circle around Twitter, but there are some moments on Twitter that do have a cultural impact. Shervin Pishevar may have just made one himself with a recent tweet storm.

In the flurry of tweets, Shervin Pishevar was looking to convey the ideas to the world that had been floating around in his mind recently about economic events. He wanted his followers to know that he has been focused on these things and that he has a number of opinions about the things that we have all been obsessing over as of late.

Bitcoin Shervin Pishevar actually has fewer objections to Bitcoin than you might expect. He is not one of the cheerleaders for this crypto-currency that believes that it can do no wrong either. Rather, Shervin Pishevar has a more mixed opinion regarding this one. He does believe that Bitcoin has some value to it, but he is not all that interested in purchasing it right now. This is because in the immediate future he sees it taking a dip.

The American Dream- The American Dream may be something very different than it used to be if you listen to Pishevar. He thinks that so much of our culture and values have been exported at this point that many of the next great would be American inventions will actually be made elsewhere. This is perhaps something to both celebrate and mourn at the same time.

The Stock Market- The market has been on a tear. Who could be upset with the direction of the stock market as of late? Well, Shervin Pishevar believes that it is due for a drop of around twenty percent in value. If you are a holder of US-based equities at the moment he thinks that you should get out immediately.
