In a day long tweet storm, Shervin Pishevar outlined many economic problems facing the world. While some of the issues may not seem an imperative, the long-term outlook can be catastrophic. It may all depend on how fast the world advances. There is a chance that his predictions will come to pass in the near term. The reason for this is that the world is already connected. It relies upon innovation to sustain a culturally diverse civilization. Human interaction through emotional media is available to most of the world. Thus, staunching innovation could throw the world into turmoil.
According to Shervin Pishevar, monopolies like Amazon, Alphabet, Apple, and Microsoft should be treated like nation-states. They simply have too much influence for the rest of the world to live freely. Oftentimes their influence is unwanted. This may be no more conspicuous than in the struggle to mitigate the sharing of private information. It is not so much that these monopolies save customer information than it is that they profit from its distribution. They do so without compensating their customers. One can even argue that they cost their customers money by acting this way.
Shervin Pishevar believes that monopolies hinder startups from enter the market. This limits the growth of innovation. While needs may be met, cultures and belief system can suffer if a monopolistic agenda asserts itself. This is not an unrealistic future considering the nature of competition and the bottom line. People need to be heard. It is why infants cry out. Even a mother must listen to her child when it needs something. Soulless monopolies cannot treat their customers as dependents and then not listen to them in times of needs. Hindering startups and diversified innovation isolates anyone who is not in line with the corporate agenda.
Overall economic growth is also limited in the Shervin Pishevar monopolistic model. It was much harder for the world to come together in the past. The Internet and mobile devices make global sanctioning by opinion a powerful regulator. This is one way his prediction of the downfall of monopolies may take place.
