There were definitely some people who did not know who Shervin Pishevar was before his recent tweet storm. This storm took place over twenty-one hours and involved some fifty tweets. They ranged in topic from Bitcoin to the rising influence and power of China on the world stage. To say that Shervin Pishevar covered a lot of ground is an understatement. He definitely made a huge impact on everyone who read what he was tweeting about.
The first tweet from Shervin Pishevar in this particular storm was like a bolt of lightening out of the blue. It was unexpected by a lot of people because he had not been tweeting for a while. In fact, just the fact that he was back on the social network surprised some people. It meant that many had their attention drawn to what he would say next.

He started it all off by talking about how a recent stock market decline should be attributed at least in part to the polices of President Donald Trump. He made the case that some investors were fleeing the market because they were concerned about the instability that the President was bringing to those markets with his unpredictable behavior. That may be true, but not everyone is willing to say it. Shervin Pishevar did not mind going there. He would continue on to talk about how China was going to become the leading world superpower and how Bitcoin was not as safe of an investment as some people may have hoped.
Shervin Pishevar did not hold back any punches at the end of the day. He was willing to go after anyone or any institution if it made sense to him to do so. Therefore, not everyone likes what Pishevar has to say or how he says it. That being said, he does have the track record to back himself up. Early investments in Airbnb and Uber are plenty of proof that the man knows a thing or two about making wise investment choices for the future. If he is that good at predicting something like that, what is to say that he doesn’t know about other economic factors as well?
