The nice thing about reading the tweets of Shervin Pishevar is that you do not have to have a degree in economics to understand what he is talking about. He keeps things interesting and lively in a way that a lot of economics reporting simply is not. He tries to spice things up and keep his readers coming back for more. So far to this point he has been highly successful in doing just that. He has made it possible for the everyday person to see exactly what he is talking about and actually come to their own conclusions about exactly how much they should trust the reporting of this person. You have to admit that he has changed the landscape of the way in which these issues are talked about even if you are not the biggest fan of Shervin Pishevar.
Recently he went on his latest tweet storm to talk about a whole range of issues. It was a delightful series of messages in which Shervin Pishevar covered almost everything that has been in the news lately regarding economics. He even threw in some topics that perhaps do not get as much coverage on the news.
The Last Great Startups?- Are Uber and AirBnb the last great hopes that the United States has to offer the world in terms of startups? They are if you ask Shervin Pishevar about it. He does not believe that startups in the United States will retain so many of the advantages that they held over startups in other countries in the past.

Is The American Dream Dead?- People start to get a little touchy when you suggest that the American Dream might be dead. Shervin Pishevar had no problem going there there. As a venture capitalist, he is fearful about what he is seeing in the markets.
Bitcoin- This cryptocurrency troubles Shervin Pishevar in a way, but he does not think that it is completely meaningless like so many other Wall Street types do. He thinks that there is some value in it but that investors should be cautious and perhaps wait until it falls to much lower levels.
