Shervin Pishevar is a man known for his many words when it comes to various societal issues. He returned with a bang. Pishevar went to his most preferred social media platform, Twitter, to give his view of the American economy to his followers. A 21-hour rant of Twitter has been the topic of discussion of the valid of the arguments that he seemed to advance about an impending economic crisis in America. Stocks of some companies were shaken as a result of the opinions made by this respected entrepreneur and business leader. Indeed, many financial analysts seem to agree with some of his thoughts.
A careful analysis of the twitter rants by Shervin Pishevar seems to suggest that his tweets were thought out carefully since he seemed to be concerned with more than just the 6,000-point decline of the American economy. He deliberately chose to address various issues that are of concern to many Americans in regards to the economy including issues related to politics, nationalism, and culture. The scope of his tweets clearly indicates that Pishevar’s concern might be more than just concerns raised by an investor and businessperson. Rather, they are concerns raised by a patriotic individual concerned with the future of his society in general.
Many people have taken his 21-hour rant a bit serious because his previous predictions regarding the economy came to be. Shervin Pishevar is the same man who previously raised concerns about a potential future crisis for Facebook in terms of identity and approximately ten years after his article, his concerns lay bare for all to see as the company struggles with an identity-related crisis. In his 2008 article, Pishevar wrote, ‘While our financial systems lie teetering or near destruction, we realize we must build from the ground up a new system.’ The entrepreneur’s tendency to raise concerns that affect different societies in advance is responsible for the nationwide attention to his claims that an economic crisis is impending. It is a matter of time until the public finds out whether Shervin Pishevar’s concerns are genuine.
