The short-term thinking of members of the U.S. economy has become a major issue for the former Uber investor, Shervin Pishevar. The J. William Fullbright Foreign Scholarship Board member recently spent 21 hours giving his Twitter followers a glimpse into the failings he believes will remain in position across the U.S. unless the short-term thinking of those in positions of power changes to a more forward-thinking way of developing the nation for the future.
During his 21-hour Twitter storm, Pishevar stated his belief in the problems facing the U.S. in terms of the short-sighted view of the need to develop the infrastructure of the nation in the coming months. Shervin Pishevar has been a major part of the U.S. economy for many years as he has acted as an angel investor and long-term investor in many of the top technology companies in the country.
For Shervin Pishevar, the problems facing the U.S. come from a short-term approach to development not shared by some of the entrepreneurs in the world. Pishevar believes the major technology visionaries such as Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson have been derided by their contemporaries in the U.S. technology field because they are willing to think outside the box. Chinese projects such as the nine-hour construction of a new train station are becoming routine around the world, the U.S. is being left behind as the world looks to new ways of completing major projects and developing new technologies.
Shervin Pishevar not only held government officials and infrastructure specialists in the U.S. to account during his Twitter storm but also spent much of his time exploring the many problems facing the technology sector in Silicon Valley. As one of the most important technology developers and investors in the world, Shervin Pishevar explained he has little time for the top five technology companies in the U.S. he blames for stifling the growth of startups and creating a development vacuum now being filled by foreign technology experts and startups.
