Shervin Pishevar tweets about the future of bitcoin and the economic growth in the United States

Shervin Pishevar is one of the people in the United States who has made significant contributions to the growth of some of the great innovations we see today. As an angel investor and venture capitalist, he nurtures startups that are based on brilliant ideas. One of the recent startups he has nurtured is Uber. In less than a decade after it was established, this company now ranks in the league of Unicorns. Pishevar has a knack for good ideas. However, in business, it is not all about luck; you need to be familiar with some of the things happening in your surroundings. No business can be run in a vacuum. Many external factors influence the performance of business ideas. The economic conditions in the country will determine how businesses established there would perform.

Before taking up any startup, Shervin Pishevar looks to all the factors that are likely to determine the success of an idea. In this process, he learns so much about the economy and the field of finance in general. Due to his long experience, he can tell when the time is right to invest and when it not. He recently tweeted saying how the US economy will dwindle in the near future. He said that all indicators point to a potential drop in the industry.

Shervin Pishevar expected the stock market to lose over 6,000 points. Such a move would erase the gains from the bull market of 2017. The bond market is already declining, another indicator of the challenges that the economy is currently grappling with. Shervin Pishevar believes that all the options being used by the Federal Reserve to deal with the challenges of economic development will likely not bear any fruits since they have been used many times and are no longer effective.

Shervin Pishevar has also given his opinion about the future of the bitcoin. He believes that it is a great idea to have digital currencies since it will, remove the bureaucracy that is involved in money transactions. Bitcoin will make money transaction frictionless. He thinks it will rise in value in the future but not before there is a sharp decline to the $2-5k range.

Shervin Pishevar discusses the likelihood of further central bank meddling

Shervin Pishevar is one of the most respected venture capitalists in the tech space. He is the founder as well as the CEO of Investment company, a venture capital firm that has involved itself in the creation of some of the most prominent tech companies of our time, including Airbnb, Uber and Virgin Hyperloop. Shervin Pishevar has also founded a number of big-name tech companies himself, among them, Social Gaming Network, Inside and WebOS.

But when he isn’t busy running his empire of tech firms, Shervin Pishevar often takes to the Twitterverse to discuss matters of crucial importance to the future of the country. One of the issues on which he has addressed his more than 100,000 Twitter followers has included the state of the economy and the role of the Federal Reserve in shaping the current severe asset inflation and other potential problems that we are currently seeing.

Shervin Pishevar says that the experiment in so-called quantitative easing that the Fed has carried out over the last decade has had some pernicious effects on the economy. And he believes that not enough people, central bankers included, have been able to recognize them. Pishevar says that the Fed’s flooding of the market with cheap credit has created a widespread general asset bubble that has transcended asset classes. He says that there is now excessively high valuations in real estate, equities and bonds.

One of the consequences of this, says Pishevar, is that homes and housing costs in general have skyrocketed, leaving ordinary Americans with less disposable income. This has also had a ripple effect throughout the economy, putting a lid on consumer spending, the main driver of the economy and a source of revenues that amounts to more than 70 percent of U.S. GDP.

Pishevar warns that once these declines in economic activity begin to be reflected in the price of stocks, the Fed will not hesitate to carry out more heavy-handed interventions. This, he believes, may present a serious risk for the eventual development of hyperinflation, a condition that could ultimately cause the annihilation of most Americans’ savings.

Sahm Adrangi Negative Report

Investment manager, Kerrisdale Capital, recently published a report that explained why its shorted position on The St. Joe Company. KC stated that it believes St. Joe will utterly fail in its $1 billion venture to transform a large and deserted area near Panama City Beach into a luxurious neighborhood for retirees and businesses. Kerrisdale describes the pitiful land holding as a “swampy, remote, desolate” area. They say that even if it does succeed, their expectations are way to ambitious, so ambitious that if there expectations were to come true it would make more profitable than all the other commercial real estate investments in the Panhandle combined.

But the biggest negative is that nothing has been really happening during the entirety of the project’s life. As of right now, things are going so sluggishly in the project that it is doubtful anything will ever come of it. And this is not a project that just started. It was originally proposed over a decade ago and has had investors impatiently waiting around all that time. In the meantime, some of these companies have been lessened in profitability in part because of this stagnant investment. The most so is Fairholme who is about to go under completely and incidentally owns a third of St. Joes shares.

Kerrisdale Captal is led by its founder and CIO, Sahm Adrangi. He leads his company to obtain misunderstood stocks like underfollowed longs and overhyped shorts. The company reflects this same philosophy of stocks. These can be found on its website. Sahm Adrangi entered adult life by earning his B.A. in Economics from Yale University. After graduation, he entered the financial industry by working in credit at Deutsche Bank. During these years he leveraged loan debt financing and advised creditor committees in bankruptcy situations.

Sahm Adrangi first made a name for himself in the financial world by exposing fraud in Chinese markets. In recent years Adrangi has led Kerrisdale to focus on a number of developing areas. Biochemistry, telecommunications and mining may be predominant. Sahm Adrangi is today a much coveted and sought after financial speaker worldwide. He also writes articles on finances for various periodicals.
