In February, the Dow was making huge moves that erased the gains made at the beginning of the year. At the same time, prominent angel investor Shervin Pishevar wrote a series of tweets on the financial status of the US economy among other issues. Shervin had a lot to say about especially on matters touching on the future of the US economy. Pishevar is an accomplished investor as the co-founder of Virgin Hyperloop One, Uber, Airbnb among others. His comments deserve respect since he is one of the best investors in Silicon Valley. He is the former managing director of Sherpa Capital, a position he held since December last year.
The tweets by Shervin came at a time when there were talks about inflation, interest rate hikes, credit account deficits and such things which are indicators of a failing economy. The economy would also suffer from the actions of the government to lower corporate tax. After looking at these issues, Shervin Pishevar predicted that the economy would lose. He predicted that the stock market would lose by 6,000 points. A few days after his prediction, the market had lost by 1,000 points.
Not everything in his tweet-storm was about the economy. He talked a lot about globalism as well. In his prediction, Silicon Valley was no longer the best place for innovations. In fact, it is no longer about the physical location anymore. According to Shervin Pishevar, everything has changed into an idea. Other countries have picked the idea of the Silicon Valley and are implementing the plans in their own countries. This shift means that innovators will no longer come into the United States when they can innovate in their countries.
By the time Shervin Pishevar was done with the tweets storm, he had sent out 50 messages discussing other issues such as cryptocurrencies and US monopolies.
During an interview with Richard Liu at the World Economic Forum annual meeting, Richard Liu gave insight into the development of his success with JD.com, how he views his success, and future outlooks. Richard gave a story of how he began JD.com in 1998. He revealed, with embarrassment, that he created the name of JD.com based on his first name and his wife’s last name since she was his first love. Today, JD.com is one of China’s largest e-commerce company which encompasses approximately 167,000 employees and worth around $57.6 billion USD.
Richard Liu shared how he was involved in business since he was young. His parents owned a small business where they would wait at a canal and transport people. Then in college, he opened his own restaurant, but it failed because of his time commitment as a third-year student. After Richard Liu graduated, he opened a dozen stores selling computer accessories in order to pay for his grandmother’s medical care who was facing health problems. However, Richard Liu was forced to close his stores down because of the SARS epidemic that broke out in southern China. It became too risky to meet a lot of customers in person. Richard did not want his managers to get affected, but they also needed a way to survive. Therefore, they all gathered together to brainstorm and came to the conclusion that they should sell their products online. After carrying out their idea for two years, they found that doing business online was more cost efficient and gave the customer a better experience. This led Richard to believe that e-commerce was going to be the trend for the future.
Richard believes that what made his company successful in 2004 was that he deviated from selling counterfeited products and set up a proper voicemail system which other businesses were not doing. JD.com also provides customers with the benefit of having their product delivered to them within an average of 6 hours in China.
Richard Liu is now seeking to place JD.com as number one in market value among internet companies related to online business in China.
