Silicon Valley is the birthplace of hundreds of successful startups. But the Valley’s reputation for being the number one funder for new companies may come to an end, according to Shervin Pishevar. Shervin Pishevar is one of Silicon Valley’s investment stars. But back in February, Pishevar let his friends in Silicon Valley know other countries were after that number one startup funding spot. Shervin said Silicon Valley lost its sense of urgency. But that’s not all Shervin said during his 21-hour tweetstorm.
Back in February, investors thought Trump’s economic agenda would cure all the ills some economists said were in the wind. But as Trump continues to change the way America does business with the world, investors have a sense that there’s a global economic storm brewing. That’s what Shervin Pishevar said in his tweetstorm at the beginning of 2018.
But it’s still hard for some investors to see what Shervin Pishevar saw ten months ago. Those investors still think the stock market will adjust once Trump’s trade war with China goes away. They still believe the bond market will protect them if the market takes a big tumble. And they believe what the Feds say about inflation being in check. Shervin tried to tell those investors they need to adjust those beliefs. Pishevar’s tweets spell out what some hedge fund investors saw a couple of years ago.
Shervin Pishevar’s 50-plus tweets made some investors mad, but other investors took Shervin’s advice. They got out of the stock market, and they invested in the precious metal market. Other investors looked for other assets that wouldn’t fall apart due to Trump’s flawed economic policies. But according to Pishevar, those assets will be hard to find in 2019 unless Trump changes the way he deals with the world in 2019.
But even though the Pishevar tweetstorm didn’t register with investors in February, those investors are rereading Shervin’s tweets now. They see what Pishevar tried to tell them ten months ago. But many investors still believe Trump has the economic answers that will avoid an economic meltdown in 2019.
The Chinese online retail firm Jingdong has thrown open its logistics network to both other an online business and consumers. Businesses and people in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Beijing can now ship parcels domestically using their shipping system by either accessing the JD.com app or by using the social-messaging app WeChat. At some point in the future they will offer this to everybody in mainland China.Jingdong has a nationwide network of warehouses, trucks, and vans that they use to deliver parcels purchased on the JD.com website. They will now be competing with Chinese shipping firms such as SF Express and ZTO Express, Inc.
Their logistics network can reach almost every person in the nation and over 90 percent of their orders are delivered in just one day or less.The chief executive of JD Logistics, Zhenhui Wang, said that they have been looking to leverage their national logistics network for a while now. JD.com is competing with the other Chinese largest online retailer, Alibaba, and extending their logistics network to consumers and businesses is an effective way of doing so.Jingdong has a logistics network that includes 15 logistics parks and over 500 warehouses placed strategically around mainland China. They also have close to 7,000 stations for pickup and delivery.
Their fleet includes nearly 250,000 delivery vehicles and they are increasingly delivering parcels via drones.When someone orders a product from Jingdong, 95 percent of the time it will show up at their door having been shipped from one of their warehouses. It will also be delivered in one of their vehicles by a driver wearing one of Jingdong’s uniforms. They had already been offering their logistic network to some corporations, including Unilever, so extending it to other businesses and consumers was the logical next step.A spokesperson for JD.com stated that they are one of very few logistics providers in China. She also stated that nobody but Jingdong has the same reach or speed as her company does. Opening up their logistics network to others will vastly speed up getting parcels delivered across the nation.
