In a 50-Tweet Storm, Shervin Pishevar Shares Unsettling Economic Thoughts

On February 5, 2018, tech investor Shervin Pishevar began a tweet storm on Twitter that business-focused media outlets have called everything from exceptional to bizarre. Always an attention catcher, Pishevar opened his 50-tweet spree with a bold shot.

“Some thoughts on financial storms I seeing brewing ahead. I expect (sic) 6000 point drop in aggregate in (sic) months ahead,” he stated. Over a 21-hour period, Pishevar detailed his position.

Troubling Financial Tools

Importantly, Pishevar negatively criticized multiple aspects of the American investing arena. He warned that volatility indexes exist only to allow risk-taking loopholes like those that lead to the previous decade’s recession. And he seemed particularly dubious of exchange-traded funds and managed-future funds.

Silicon Valley’s Actual Location

For a decade, Shervin Pishevar has cried to anyone who would listen that, though a region called Silicon Valley sits within the United States, the nation does not hold the tech capital and its innovative industry within its boundaries. “As I’ve said before,” Pishevar wrote, “Silicon Valley is it (sic) longer a physical place but an idea that’s gone viral.” He next called entrepreneurship a movement without borders.

Wrongheaded Immigration Policy

Born in Iran, Pishevar is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and he criticized the current presidential administration’s immigration stance. “But while we build walls (sic) physical and culture (sic) to keep out immigrant talent (sic) that talent doesn’t need to come here anymore.”

China’s Rising Profile

To show America’s slipping grasp on world leadership, Shervin Pishevar tweeted a link to news coverage of a Chinese construction accomplishment. In January, a team of 1,500 workers required only one night to build a new train station. “Meanwhile, our infrastructure is in tatters, decrypt (sic) and decaying,” he tweeted.

A Top-Heavy Industry

An igniting force for Uber and Airbnb, Pishevar bemoaned practices of the five tech companies he calls Modern Ma Bells, Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple and Facebook.

Of their power to exclude competing startups, Pishevar said, “Small acquisitions are silent assassinations.”

If U.S. tech, investing and government leaders listen to Shervin Pishevar and change their nation’s path, it could enjoy improved economic stability.

Talk Fusion Makes Video Messaging One Of The Best Ways To Get The Word Out

Talk Fusion is not just any company; it’s a company that enables users to create videos or broadcast live for their audience in ways that continue to be improved year after year. Its basic interface follows a concept that’s similar to GoToMeeting, Skype and other live streaming software intended both for one-on-one chat or live large group chats. But what makes Talk Fusion more preferable than some of these platforms is its webRTC technology means users do not have download or install extra software to use it. Not even the flash media player or Microsoft’s plugins are needed to use it because Talk Fusion has its own player that just comes up any time you open a browser.

 

Bob Reina is the founder and CEO of Talk Fusion and at the time he first launched it, it was to provide a way for users to send video files through an email client. Reina had challenged AOL’s statement that it was not possible to send any video files through email even though he had tried to do so through their system and had failed. But he and a colleague worked on an algorithm that took a few years to perfect, but Reina soon had his webRTC email video client. Reina added more to that program such as video newsletters, slide presentations, signup forms and Talk Fusion’s current chat and conference app. Most users access the Talk Fusion suite through its main website, but it does also have an app that’s free to download in Google Play or iTunes.

 

What Bob Reina takes great pride in with Talk Fusion is that his company doesn’t make money without the associates doing so. It’s part of a direct selling method that Reina has a lot of previous experience in, and he decided to allow Talk Fusion associates to earn commissions doing the same thing. For associates who might be new to direct selling, Reina has a course known as Talk Fusion University where he explains how to get the Talk Fusion message out and use a variety of methods to communicate it. For users who want to give Talk Fusion a test drive before subscribing to it, they can signup for a 30-day free trial which gives full access for that period without even needing payment information. Reina also talks in-depth about video communication in the articles he writes for magazines like the HuffPost and MarTech Advisor. Learn more: https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/talk-fusion
